special delivery

Christmas letters are quirky, wonderful things often requiring a propensity for reading between the lines. The 'joys, tragedies, recipes and reflections' of three generations of sweet southern women are captured in The Christmas Letters by Lee Smith. Across the ages and pages, a grandmother, her daughter and then her granddaughter take up a December pen to share their story with family and friends. Really funny at times and achingly revealing at others, these letters are full of good old life. With lots of love.
