Synopsis: A publishing first - the first and only complete collection of all Louisa May Alcott's Christmas short stories and novellas. <br><br>Louisa May Alcott has been loved for generations of readers for her timeless stories like Little Women, Little Men, and Jo's Boys. Few authors have equaled her ability to bring characters to life in such a way that readers truly care for and believe in them-and are inspired to be like them. <br><br>Now for the first time, all of Alcott's known Christmas short stories and novellas have been gathered into a single exquisite collection, which is sure to brighten the holidays for book lovers. <br><br>Readers of all ages will cherish these fifteen enchanting tales filled with hope, sorrow, faith, joy, redemption, strength, and goodness. <br><br>Louisa May Alcott's Christmas Treasury is a wonderful gift for oneself or a loved one. <br><br><br>

From Publishers Weekly: Hines, who has sold nearly half a million copies of Alcott's rediscovered stories "The Quiet Little Woman" and "Kate's Choice," here gathers those tales along with 18 others to comprise a "Christmas treasury"-all of Alcott's known Christmas sketches in one volume. Some will be dearly familiar to readers; an excerpt from Little Women, for example, reminds us of the yuletide benevolence of Marmee and her four girls. Other touching stories are less well known, such as "What Love Can Do," about residents of a boarding house joining together to make a lovely Christmas for two poor girls. (Poverty and Christmas charity are the themes that tie most of these stories together.) Hines can be a heavy-handed compiler, whose editorial notes tell the reader how to respond to the stories. ("Perhaps we today need to learn a lesson from Miss Alcott and from Patty," he intones at the close of "The Quiet Little Woman.")
