Grandma’s Christmas Wish

Posted on Oct 3, 2016 in Zion BookWorks

by Shirlee Hurst Shields Illustrated by Melita Lee Introductory price: $7.99 (+ shipping and Maine Sales Tax) The warm memories of childhood Christmases long ago, spent with the family we love and remember, tend to return to us over and over again. Each remembering brings some new flavor, or aroma or sight — some indelible memory — that kindles or re-lights those warm feelings of the season.
