Review: The Silent Stars Go by a True Christmas StoryUser Review - Crystal Demsky - Goodreads
If you grew up in the south, particularly in Georgia, you will enjoy this memoir of a late 1950s Christmas. The imagery reminded me so much of my beloved home state. I particularly enjoyed his vivid descriptions of his longing for the perfect Christmas gift that year. Read full review
