Book Review: Christmas Eve at the Back Door

Christmas tour

Christmas time is here! Okay, so not quite yet. It’s still over a month away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start celebrating early, right? So today, we’re celebrating the release of not one, not four, but eight new Christmas books! All written by Rebekah A. Morris. I’ll be reviewing two of her books today, and you can find out more about the others as you follow the tour.

About the Book

Christmas Eve at the Backdoor cover

The Great Depression is in full swing, and Mrs. Kabrick hopes to make Christmas a special time for her children even though they don’t have much. With the back door constantly opening and shutting, time flies bringing cold air, visitors, and a very special Christmas Eve.

Can I go to this town for Christmas? Everyone is so neighborly, and I love the set-up of the backdoors. πŸ˜‰ I had a little trouble keeping the twins apart at first, but I soon grew to recognize each individual child. (Roger is Mr. Mischief. πŸ˜› ) Mrs. Kabrick sure did have a busy day though! Phew. I especially enjoyed how each knock sounded different, depending on the type of person coming to the door. Ice skating sounded like fun, and having a new kitten for Christmas is pretty special. πŸ˜‰ And the pastor handing out gifts is such a neat tradition! I love how the path to their door SPOILER ALERT!Β helped the tramps realize that it was a welcoming place. This story ended on a very sweet, Christmas-y note!

Best quote: It seemed hesitant, almost unsure, as if the giver wasn’t sure he really wanted to knock.

Altogether, this short story was a great little sample of Christmas. πŸ˜‰

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
