At its most sacred, Christmas is a celebration of God's love, and within than, the love we are fortunate to share among each other. And what greater bond of love exists than that between parent and child? In simple, poetic prose, master storyteller Susan Bartoletti presents a time in the American economy when parents and children were often separated, not from lack of love, but from lack of jobs and lack of income.
