On the Ninth Day of Christmas...

On the 9th day of Christmas my true love gave to me 9 ladies dancing

Whenever I think of Christmas in literature, that scene at the beginning of Little Women comes to mind. So although it technically isn't a Christmas book, I still think of it that way. That's why I was delighted to find today's prize, which is for a gently used hardback copy of Christmas Dreams: Portraits of Little Womenby Susan Beth Pfeffer. This is from a series of continuations of the characters from Little Women and this particular book happens to be set during Christmas for the March family.

About the Book (from "Each of the girls has a choice to make about the beautiful brooch.

Meg's Christmas Dream: Meg would gladly exchange it for a gift for her father....

Jo's Christmas Dream: Jo behaves like a total scrooge and must learn the true spirit of Christmas.

Beth's Christmas Dream: Beth discovers what her sisters' and parents' lives would have been like without her.

Amy's Christmas Dream: Always happy to receive presents, Amy surprises everyone when she bestows a gift to a poor little girl.

This quartet of Christmas stories captures the joyful spirit of the holiday season."
