“The word “heartwarming” has been diminished by overuse, which is unfortunate when one comes across something that truly deserves the description. The feelings conjured by this book are ones the reader will want to savor. This is the kind of book that induces a quiet joy, a work that invites memory and reflection, that celebrates home fires and pungent greens and the twinkling lights that carry us through the darkest nights of the year.”
