Praise

“An enchanted, stirring tale about the greatest and most surprising gifts, acceptance and love.”
Elizabeth Dewberry, author of His Lovely Wife, Sacrament of Lies, and Break the Heart of Me

“Over the years I’ve read about every conceivable kind of Christmas story that existed. Then came this one: truly a wondrous one-of-a-kind tale bringing laughter and tears. If it were possible to fuse the writing styles and messages of Garrison Keillor, C. S. Lewis, Dave Barry, and Catherine Marshall, the result might very well bear the title My Mother’s Wish.”
Joe L. Wheeler, Ph.D., editor of the Christmas In My Heart® story anthology series

“Jerry Camery-Hoggatt explores the mystical relationship that binds mothers and children together and gives all of us an opportunity to revisit that magical time as our own mothers dragged us, kicking and screaming at times, through childhood.  This is a book that makes you think–and remember. You will want to call and thank your own mother and tell her you love her.”
Ed Butchart, professional and official Santa, Stone Mountain, Georgia, and author of Red Suit Diaries and More Red Suit Diaries

“Eleanor Crumb McKutcheon–call her Ellie, please–is a precocious little tweener blessed with a ratty wryness that puts her at odds with her purposeful mother, whose heavenly vision of what her daughter should be bears no resemblance whatever to what Ellie sees for herself. When hostilities reach epic proportions, Ellie packs up and leaves, an act of rebellion and defiance that brings her, kicking and screaming, into the neighborhood of grace. Jerry Camery-Hoggatt’s charming Christmas fable is proof that a less-than-accommodating Bethlehem stable still has room for every last one of us.”
Dr. James Calvin Schaap, Department of English, Dordt College, author of Startling Joy and Romey’s Place
