Christie's Christmas


Read by TriciaG

(4.7 stars; 33 reviews)

Now that the railroad has come through, Christie Tucker's parents have decided to save enough for her to go to her well-to-do Uncle Daniel for a one-day visit, on Christmas, which is also Christie's birthday. It's her first trip away from home -- and on the cars! Of course, the trip doesn't turn out exactly as expected. That one day, and how Christie lived it, has consequences that keep coming! Addressed by the author to girls, it is still a pleasant story for adults, too. (Summary by TriciaG) (7 hr 44 min)

Sweet, Endearing Story


(5 stars)

This tale helps one consider how the deeds of a single afternoon can have a lasting impact. We follow Christie and see how her conduct on a train ride ripples to benefit others and her family for months to come.

How sweet to serve because Mother would want it --- Even sweeter to serve because our Kingly Elder Brother would want it! And what blessings He gives!!! I loved this story.
