  • Christmas Eva on Jan. 11, 2014

    A heartwarmingly touching tale about a serious subject based on true events, Christmas Eva is a quick, brisk read that will stir your soul and cause you to ponder both the perception of events within the tale, and the truth that lies behind it. Highly recommended. I look forward to the "sequel" coming next Christmas!
