The Retro Reads Group on Goodreads read a selection of stories from this book.
We started with A Christmas Matinee by M.A.L. Lane.
So touching and with lots of good messages – not the least was that it feels good to do the right thing. I had tears in my eyes at the end! 5★
The Queerest Christmas by Grace Margaret Gallagher
I had tears in my eyes again. What was so lovely was that Betty didn’t realise she had done anything special. Heartwarming 4.5★
The Telltale Tile by Olive Thorne Miller.
I found the writing a little awkward in this story, but it was still a very sweet tale. 3.5★
Little Gretchen and the Wooden Shoe by Elizabeth Harrison More tears! But I liked that the outcome for Gretchen was realistic. & Gretchen was so sweet. 5★
The Philanthropist’s Christmas by James Weber Linn
I liked that the resolution had a little bit of the unexpected. (view spoiler) 4★
The Chimes I thought The Chimes was beautiful. Once again I cried. 4.5★
