Publisher Description

A wounded warrior and his younger brother discover the true meaning of Christmas in a timeless story of family bonds in this “lovely and memorable” (Luis Carlos Montalván, New York Times bestselling author) standalone tale from Mary Alice Monroe.

As far as ten-year-old Miller McClellan is concerned, it’s the worst Christmas ever. His father’s shrimp boat is docked, his mother is working two jobs, and with finances strained, Miller is told they can’t afford the dog he desperately wants. “Your brother’s return from war is our family’s gift,” his parents tell him. But when Taylor returns with PTSD, the stress and strain darken the family.

Then Taylor’s service dog arrives—a large black Labrador/Great Dane named Thor. His brother even got the dog! When Miller goes out on Christmas Eve with his father’s axe, determined to get his family the tree they can’t afford, he takes the dog for company—but accidentally winds up lost in the wild forest. In the midst of this emergency, the splintered family must come together and rediscover their strengths, family bond, and the true meaning of Christmas.

Big fan of Mary Alice Monroe

Just as I’ve found with the numerous books I’ve read by Mary Alice Monroe, this was a very good way to spend a few hours. This book covers some very difficult situations, including PTSD and the very real horrors endured by many of our returning service men & women. It also shows how many are deeply benefitted by trained service dogs. Any assistance that you can give to these men & women and/or of the organizations that train & provide service dogs will be much appreciated & needed. God bless our veterans.
