Christmas is always special, but even more so if your birthday falls on the same day. As William Spencer celebrates his birthday each year on December 25–first as a child in rural America in the 1930s, and then as a World War II veteran, husband, and father–he learns that, no matter what his circumstances, happiness is an attitude, not a condition. But as a solitary old man living in a one-bedroom apartment, William Spencer expects this Christmas birthday to be his last. His holiday is one of solitude and reflection, dominated by the echoes of the past and by a single, simple wish. When an unexpected turn of events reminds William of a lesson learned many years ago, he’s faced with a choice. Can he find the strength to imagine a new future? Hailed as a “truly beautiful book”, you will want to revisit The Three Christmases of William Spencer every holiday season. Free on Kindle.
