Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls on Thanksgiving weekend begging him to come home after his stepfather has a stroke, Rick is more than a little reluctant. He's never liked Art and resents the man's presence in his life, despite the fact that his own father abandoned the family when Rick was just twelve. When what was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and running off the homeless man who keep hanging about, Rick's attitude sours even more.

Still, slowly but surely, the little bookstore and its quirky patrons--as well as the lovely young woman who works at his side each day--work their magic on him, revealing to Rick the truth about his family, his own life, and the true meaning of Christmas. With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story will have readers remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved this book! Many have said that Dan Walsh is like Nicholas Sparks. True... to a certain extent. I believe that Mr. Walsh actually does a great job in his own right. Remembering Christmas is a wonderful example of how Mr. Walsh develops his characters and walks you through their challenges, learning curves and celebrations of life, love and amazing "Ah-ha!" moments. Anyone would find Remembering Christmas a refreshing story about love of family, love of your neighbour and love of God. Truly a good read.
