    " This is a delightful little novel. A family saga told through the Christmas News letters written by 3 generations of women who not only share their stories but also recipes. A great little read when you want something lighter (and shorter) as I often I do after having read a spell of more emotionally taxing non-fictions. "

    " Okay, it's a little over three months until Christmas so, of course, I am already anticipating the holidays. I have already purchased several gifts and wrapped one. But who am I kidding? I will let the holidays sneak up on me like they do every year and then I will run around like my hair is on fire. Plus, I probably won't be able to find the gift that's already wrapped until a few days after the tree is taken down. It's a tradition. But I digress. One of the aspects of the holiday season that I find most fascinating is the Christmas letters that come tucked into cards. While I love catching up with friends, I think that it's interesting what people put into their holiday letters and what they leave out. Reading between the lines is part of the fun. Lee Smith taps into this holiday tradition in The Christmas Letters. Spanning 1944 to 1996, these letters were written by three generations of women in a Southern family. Not only do they chronicle family stories and detail the emotional ups and downs of family life, they also reveal changes that occurred in American society in the second half of the 20th century. "

    " The Christmas Letters follows three generations of women from 1944 through 1996 (when the book was published). It was a very quick read since each section is composed entirely of letters. It was also an interesting look at how each generation changed from the previous one, but the women still kept in touch with friends and family through an annual "christmas letter". "

    " Lee Smith novella about Birdie Puckett who writes a letter describing life on a NC farm to her mother and sister. Parts two and three are about Birdie's daughter and granddaughter writing letters. These letters link the three generations. "
