This is the full-color gift edition, with colored ribbons at every chapter heading plus several full-color pictures scattered throughout. This novel could be classed as either American historical fiction or alternative history.The lives of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Mark Twain both contained terrible tragedies from which they eventually found real hope and spiritual meaning-at least in this novel. This novel is about one little sermon called "The Christmas Victory," and one, even littler poem, called "Christmas Bells," and how, fictionally, they both may have influenced and given hope to, not only the author of the poem, Henry W. Longfellow, but also his son, Charles, and Mark Twain, whom Charles meets. Though suffering tragic losses, these all eventually find hope and spiritual fulfillment, at least in this novel.
