Please join us for a discussion of Kirsten’s Surprise: A Christmas Story by Janet Shaw.

The Larson family celebrates their first Christmas in America, and Kirsten wants to keep some of their Swedish traditions alive in the new country.  She secretly plans a Saint Lucia celebration for her family. 

For her own Christmas, she hopes for just one special treasure.  But everything depends on a trip to town that Kirsten has been pestering Papa about for weeks.  At last they go, and the journey turns into a brush with disaster.  When Papa and Kirsten finally get back home, you’ll understand why the candles in the little cabin glow with a special Christmas love.
