HASH(0x9b87f9c0) out of 5 stars Very much like A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Nov. 18 2010
By Jan Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got this free for my Kindle and was very surprised that it was really a good story. Very much like the Charles Dickens story, "A Christmas Carol". You've got a bitter older woman who is going through an old box of toys. She throws some of them outside in the snow to see what people will do. She comes to this Christmas Angel ornament and it takes her to where the thrown away toys ended up. Her long lost brother comes by and they reunite. An abused, orphaned little girl becomes a part of their family. It was a pretty predictable story but a very good one! This could easily become a Christmas tradition in many households!

Miss Terry finds an old box of family toys and a pink angel while she sets out to ignore Christmas. Her attempt at isolation is instead met with memories and new joy. Lovely author.

Could not put this book down. I have recommended to family and friends as a fast read but writer immersed you into this time period and didn't let you go until the end! Really enjoyed!

HASH(0x9b87ff3c) out of 5 stars Lovely, endearing Christmas story. Dec 15 2010
By Sadie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Christmas Angel by Abbie Farwell Brown. Published 1910.

There are illustrations throughout by Reginald Birch, but they aren't included in the free download. What you see is a mention of the illustration. You must purchase each one individually and will only have access to them for 12 months.

Ms. Terry is a lonely older woman who feels that Christmas is a holiday that was invented by the retailers as a reason for people to buy stuff they don't need. So, you see, the `ol `Christmas has gone consumer' isn't a new idea at all. Back in the early 1900s they would put candles in their windows on Christmas Eve to illuminate the outdoors, an early form of Christmas lights. When Ms. Terry's caregiver requests the evening off so she can walk up and down and see the pretty lights, Ms. Terry grouses about what a waste it is to burn so many candles for no good reason. Then she goes about rummaging through a box of old toys from her youth. As proof that people don't care about anyone but themselves, Ms. Terry tosses each toy one by one outside in front of her home and waits to see what will happen. And, just as she suspected, each toy was snatched up by someone in a greedy, selfish way.

Then just as Ms. Terry has convinced herself that all people are grubby little thieves for taking her old toys, an angel appears. This angel takes Ms. Terry to visit each of the people who picked up one of the toys and shows her what they did with the toy. It turns out that they were all doing something good for another.

This is an enjoyable Christmas read patterned after Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" (1843). Don't pass it up - read it out loud on Christmas Eve with the family.

HASH(0x9b87ff9c) out of 5 stars Good Book, But Warning for Kindle Readers! Poor Formatting and No Interactive Table of Contents Dec 17 2010
By Clement Clinton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The story is good, but word of warning ... there are no illustrations and no interactive table of contents. Basically it is just text. I think all kindle books should at the very least have an interactive table of contents, and one of the best joys of Christmas books are the illustrations.

I think paying $.99 more to get this 10 Best Loved Christmas Classic Stories for All Ages (Cambridge World Classics Edition) (Christmas Books Classic Literature) volume, which includes The Christmas Angel as well as many more stories, is well worth it. The other volume I would recommend is 50 Best Loved Christmas Stories and Poems for All Ages (Cambridge World Classics Edition) (Christmas Books Classic Literature) which has even more stories and poems.
