This delightful story
introduces us to a coal-mining family with nine children, struggling to make ends meet in the harsh Appalachian Mountains. The Cole Family Christmas website (ColeFamily-Christmas.com) promises
readers they will "feel the cold drifting up from the frigid floorboards…smell the food Mama cooks and sense the coziness in the tiny kitchen as her children help her prepare each
family meal." When the Coles give away a prized possession, they – and the reader -- learn that love and togetherness are far more important than material things.
One of the nine Cole children is 88-year-old Hazel Cole Kendle. Kendle co-authored Cole Family Christmas with her granddaughter-in-law, Jennifer Liu Bryan. Together they have preserved the Cole's cherished history.
