(From the publisher):
Winter has come early to the city, and by the time Christmas week arrives, Grace and her mother feel as if the cold wind will never stop blowing. Times are hard for everyone this year, but especially so for Grace and her mother, since Grace's father died the spring before. Christmas was always a time of cheer and celebration before Papa died, but this year, in their cold, small apartment, and with Mama working long hours for a seamstress, Christmas has lost its magic.
