Reading this actually put me in a Christmas-y mood!

I'm not generally fond of "dream" stories, and the end of this one, along with the title, leaves me wondering...what happened to the daughter, and was it a dream, or...the daughter's spirit? That leaves me a bit uneasy.

This was told in a very pleasant voice--an engaging read.

I enjoyed this story, but I felt there was more to the story. I know that saying everything in the allowed word count can be hard, but I wondered about the daughter. Did she die? Was she just away at school or living far away? Maybe I missed that part, but I don't remember this being addressed.
