Like most Christmas stories, this was another sweet, angst free read and it is what I come to expect with holiday stories. I felt so bad for Angus losing his mother at such a young age and spending his first Christmas without her. But Larry, while he is great with Angus is just so lost and doesn't think he can do this. Along comes Joshua who just seems to breathe life into both Angus and Larry and makes both of them begin to heal and live again. Lovely story.
