About Survival of the Christmas Spirit
“Cooking for nineteen people will be a cinch!” Ever-optimistic Dottie Harris is preparing for the biggest and best Christmas celebration ever, and nothing—not even unexpected guests or running out of gin—will get her down.
But as always, things don’t run smoothly for Dottie, and it’s not long before her two energetic children, hapless husband and a nasty stomach bug wreak havoc on her carefully planned spreadsheets.
Can Dottie throw the perfect family Christmas (without so much as a swig of gin to help her through) or will preparing for the festivities get the best of her? One thing’s for sure: This will be a Christmas to remember!
Hilarious, sentimental. I empathized with Dottie, no doubt a few of us have been in her shoes at one time or another, granted maybe not as quasi catastrophic but close nonetheless. Certainly this family will not forget such a memorable holiday in more ways than one.
Despite the numerous mishaps poor Dottie faced they ultimately reenforced the fact no matter what hiccups occur it’s being together, sharing the moment that matters most.
Witty, quick holiday read sure to make you smile during this joyous and hectic time of year as it expresses the deeper meaning of coming together as a family at Christmas.
Horton delivers comic relief and a delightful sport in Dottie, looking forward to reading more from Horton and of Dottie.
