Veteran romance writer Matlock brings her readers back to Valentine, Oklahoma, scene of two of her previous novels, to tell a heartwarming Christmas story that frames 13-year-old Corrine's coming-of-age. There is something magical about the Christmas season in this particular place, this particular year, that seems to bring out the best in everyone. To dispel the growing sentiment that there is no Santa, the whole town rises to the challenge. The post office has a special Santa mailbox where people are encouraged to put their letters, ones that express their true heart's desires. Lots of donations are sent anonymously to those who really need the cash, special little gifts start appearing in unexpected places, and extra kindness and help seem to be available everywhere. Corrine's mother, who abandoned her years before, comes home to try to make amends. Shopping is done, decorations are hung, the annual Christmas pageant is staged, all is well, and Matlock's down-to-earth characters and comforting plot will please many. Danise Hoover
