An unforgettable holiday story in Ann M. Martin's timeless new series

Format: 4 CDs, Unabridged

It's looking to be a hard holiday season for the girls of Main Street. For Flora and Ruby, it's the first Christmas without their parents around. For Olivia, gift giving and tree decorating must be balanced with the fact that both of her parents need jobs. And for Nikki, there's the presence of her mean, angry father to reckon with. Luckily, the girls have each other--and the community around them. As Camden Falls prepares for its annual festivities, Flora, Ruby, Olivia, and Nikki all find that the hard things become easier when there are family, friends, and neighbors to share things with.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There is an old-fashioned tone to the story, reminiscent of Maud Hart Lovelaces Betsy-Tacy books; readers can expect plenty of feel-good moments and satisfying plotlines in this snowy Christmas tale.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “Ariadne Meyers captures the mix of melancholy and excitement felt by Ruby and Flora. Meyers’s voice is uniquely suited for adolescent girls, bursting with uncertainty and determination, but she is also skilled with older characters…Elementary and middle school girls may want to return to this heartwarming book every December, but be warned—it’s a Santa spoiler.”
