From the Publisher:

Well-known author of Love Is a Wild Assault and The Divine Average, Elithe Hamilton Kirkland reveals her childhood memories of Christmas. Here are the magical holiday recollections of a five-year-old girl, wide-eyed in the presence of: Grandmother's bountiful kitchen-"Around [the turkey] were... an enormous spiral of whipped potatoes with butter melting into rivulets...cornbread dressing and giblet gravy; a deep platter of crushed cabbage...; thick flaky biscuits...set close beside a block of yellow butter...gleaming jellies, large spiced peach pickles, small brandied peaches....Jeff Davis chess pie, chocolate meringue pie, pumpkin pie, spice cake, pound cake, layered cakes (chocolate and fresh coconut) dark fruitcakes with whipped cream." Her bachelor uncle's bottle of Four Roses for the egg nog-"When he arrived home...Leet raced out to open the yard gate, for he would be bringing in packages.... in one hand a loaded basket and in the other the bottle of Four Roses...[with] the Four Red Roses shining forth in their gold and green embellishment." Grandfather's Sacred Harp songbook-"He was sounding his do-re-mes, tuning up for a practice session with his...song book. He had showed it to her... explaining how the sharpe of each note on the page represented a tone which he called do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti-do." Originally printed primarily as a Christmas gift for family and friends, this lesser known story will delight Kirkland's many fans, as well as those who love nostalgic Christmas tales.

Store Description

We are an Internet based business that has been selling books Internationally for going on 25 years. Our inventory consists of 15,000+ titles(prox)of which 95% are Used and/or Rare with a few new items. We try to stock items that appeal to all readers from signed limiteds to comics and everything in between. We tend to specialize in Horror, Suspense Thrillers and Modern Firsts. We don't claim to be the last word on knowledge on anything but know the most about these genres. We stock everything we can find by the following authors: Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Anne Rice, John Sandford, James Lee Burke, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert R. McCammon, J. K. Rowling to name a few. I am not into long descriptions for my books. What descriptions there are concern the physical shape of the book, not content. I am generally hard on my books when describing them. I do use the usual letter grading but describe every defect that the book has to a point that you may not think that you want to buy it. There will never be a surprise when you receive a book from me. Feel free to email or call if you have any questions. I have a lot more satisfied customers then I do unhappy ones. You can return any book that you buy from me that doesn't arrive AS ADVERTISED for a full refund including return shipping costs.
