There is nowhere better to spend Christmas than in the western North Carolina mountains, and Orson Scott Card is the perfect storyteller to take you there.-- "Sharyn McCrumb, New York Times bestselling author of The Unquiet Grave"
This being a Christmas novel, there is, of course, a chance of romance, for both Spunky and-surprisingly-Elyon. Elyon's courtship, especially, yields quite a bit of humor. There is also the mystery surrounding the feud that split the town, and a good dose of Christmas spirit. Card doesn't take himself or his Christmas story too seriously. More than once, there are humorous references to Hallmark Christmas movies, even as it's obvious that the book would make a fine one. The story is sweet, but not syrupy, and quirky enough to be thoroughly entertaining even if (satisfyingly) predictable.-- "Greensboro News and Record (North Carolina)"
