For day 11, Echelon Press Shorts 12 Days of Great Reads presents Bells by Vonnie Winslow Crist!
In this haunting holiday tale...Melinda finds herself at a family reunion on a snowy Christmas evening. Her Great-Aunt Vivian's home on the corner of Park and Millstone Streets is bursting with greenery, holiday foods, jingling bells, and relatives–both living and dead. The ghosts of Christmases past haunt this house and make their presence known to Melinda. But it is Uncle Clay whose story about a long-ago sleigh ride with his deceased wife, Junie, that makes the biggest impression–that is, until he disappears. And just what will Melinda discover when she searches on a bleak midwinter's night for her missing great-uncle beneath the icy moon and glittering stars?
About herself and the holiday season, Vonnie says, "The Winslow-Crist traditions include sauerkraut with the turkey and dressing, sleigh bells on doorknobs, a house decorated with greens, baking sugar cookies, and carols playing throughout Christmas Day."
