About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Whether it's the plight of a young soldier snow-bound in a train station on Christmas Eve who's befriended by a big-bellied, gold-toothed janitor; or a ten year old girl with a bare feet and a booming voice who steals the Christmas pageant; or a precocious young boy who cuts his initials in the cat's fur and completely wraps himself in strands of Christmas light; or the first act of rebellion by the oldest of seven children against her mother, whose strong will is only surpassed by her big heart, you will be captured and enthralled by these delightful and charming Christmas tales. While each of these are separate stories they all weave together to echo the messages and miracles of Christmas. Christmas on Deery Street reminds us of what's best in all of us, not just at Christmas but always.

“Steven Roberts is a master of the gentle O'Henry twist ending and creating tableaux that are as real and moving as any Norman Rockwell painting... Christmas on Deery Street is a wonderful celebration of holidays, family, and life” Ellen Tanner Marsh, New York Times bestselling author.
