The Reindeer Keeper

A heartwarming adult Christmas story for anyone who remembers how it felt to truly believe in Santa Claus!

Abbey and Steve have been together since the 60's; eloping when Steve returned from Vietnam. Now thrity years later, Abbey has been given the gift of an old farmhouse and 120 acres of fields and pastures-and a barn full of reindeer tended to by an odd little man. They move in just before the holidays. With Abbey's cancer in remission, they are looking forward to their boys coming home for Christmas.

Turns out this Christmas proves to be more magical than anticipated as Abbey realizes an understanding never thought possible through the rekindling of a belief rooted in childhood. Of course it's who delivers this gift that gives Abbey and Steve the strength to face their greatest challenge.

Excerpt
From nowhere came tears. From nowhere came a yearning for this stranger who'd carried her for nine months and delivered her on a cold January morning. From what Abbey had been told, the labor had been drastically long. Her father thought he might lose his wife. After the birth, doctors told them it'd be wise not to have any more children.
Abbey used her finger to clear away any dust from the photo to get an even better look. Many used to tell Abbey she resembled her mother but she never acknowledged such claims until this moment. Staring at her mother, whom she'd convinced herself she hated but now admitted she never knew, was like staring straight into a mirror.
