Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Theodora is the matriarch of a family that has grown into a bunch of truculent knuckleheads. While she's finally gotten them all together in South Carolina to celebrate, this Christmas looks nothing like the extravagant, homey holidays of her childhood.

What happened to the days when Christmas meant tables groaning with home-cooked goodies, over-the-top decorations, and long chats in front of the fire with Pearl, her grandmother's beloved housekeeper and closest confidante?

Luckily for Theodora, a special someone who heard her plea for help arrives, with pockets full of enough Gullah magic and common sense to make Theodora's Christmas the love-filled miracle it's meant to be.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2007-10-01)

Ninety-three-year old Theodora is lost in memories of past holidays when the housekeeper, Pearl, would overdecorate, overcook, and have long fireside chats with her. This year it's all slice-and-bake cookies, Internet gift certificates, and bickering families throwing insults. When Theodora is about to give up, the spirit of Pearl appears and smoothes over the holiday for all. This charming little book by the best-selling author (Land of Mango Sunsets) also includes holiday recipes. For most collections.
