The 13th Day of Christmas by Jason F. Wright

Copyright: 2012
Publisher: Shadow Mountain
Genre: fiction
Pages: 256
My rating: 4/5

Simple Description: 
 Marva lives in a house near a park/neighborhood for trailer homes.  Her and her husband used to own all the land but sold it.  It's getting close to the holidays when a new family moves in to one of the trailers.  There is a young girl, Charlee.   Charlee is very interested in making friends and spots Marva from across the field.  Soon the two of them become fast friends even though there is a huge age difference, with Marva being in her 80's and Charlee being only 9 years old.

However on Thanksgiving tragedy strikes.  Just when things seem to be getting better, things get worse.  Charlee's wish is that everyone is home for Christmas.

My Thoughts:
It's funny how I often read two books in a row that have a similar thread. In this case it was cancer. I rarely plan this, it just happens.   This book was another sad one but also one with a good message.   I've been happy with Jason Wright's books in the past and this one has not disappointed.   I do love a good sappy Christmas story for the holidays.  This was the perfect one for me.

I think I may have read and enjoyed one of his books in the past. This sounds good for this time of year.
