My Motherís Wish
An American Christmas Carol

by Jerry Camery-Hoggatt

      My Motherís Wish—An American Christmas Carol, by Jerry Camery-Hoggatt, is a good book that all of us can relate to at some point in our lives.

Imagine growing up as Eleanor Crumb McKutcheon. Exactly, no one wants to have to live up to a name like that, nor can they.† So from early on, Eleanor became Ellee, at least to herself.† The teachers and her parents never used that name; it was always Eleanor to them.† Who wants to have to prove that they are as good as or better than the grandmother she was named after.† That is not a realistic expectation to put onto any child.

Life goes on, and as Ellee tells the story, life is just a bit hokey at times and we all have to make believe to get by.

This is such a short book that I really canít go into many details, as that will give away this uniquely inspired little book, and I just wonít do that!† But what I will do is say this, if you find that you have about an hourís time and you would like to just loose yourself, this is the book for you!
