LIGHTHOUSE SANTA fast becoming a Christmas Tradition

Every winter holiday there tends to be 'the one'. The one toy every child wants. The one piece of technology that every techno wants. The one piece of jewelry or perfume every female wants. This year 'the one' is a book. A book that brings back memories of anxiously waiting for Santa to arrive. The worries if the snow isn't deep enough for the reindeer or the fireplace is still burning when he arrives on the rooftop, or worse, what if our behavior wasn't just good enough.

The Lighthouse Santa is a true tale of a similar worry, but even more so. Based on the Christmas flights of Edward Rowe Snow, hero to lighthouse children for almost fifty years. Sara Hoagland Hunter and Julia Miner have written a wonderful story of two young children, Kate and Sam, anxiously wait as a winter blizzard whirls around their home in the Great Point Lighthouse on Nantucket Island.

For as long as Kate can remember, the Lighthouse Santa has dropped presents from his airplane for all the lighthouse keepers’ children. But will his plane make it through hurricane winds and blinding snow? Sam says it is impossible, but Kate has been keeping a secret Christmas wish all year long, and she will not give up hope.   Read more
