A Child's Christmas in New England

 This is a memoir about a time when, and place where, (in the New England of the ‘50s and ’60s), the snow was always deep and a light was always on in the window.  At his daughter’s urging Sullivan provides a Yuletide feast for the reader, full of his memories of childhood Christmases and recollections of his parents and grandparents and of relatives and siblings and of all the goings on that make Christmas what it is, now and then. There are adventures too and hazardous excursions for which Glenn Wolff’s illustrations that accompany the whole story glow like Christmas presents by the fire, like ornaments on the Christmas tree, his memories like the author’s, rich with the texture of their youth.
