A Holiday TaleLarge Print - 2004
"Every year on the first day of December Christopher Byrne traveled from his farm in Nova Scotia to sell his Christmas trees on the streets of Manhattan. It was said that the Cape Breton trees were special, that the northern lights charged the needles with magic. But this year there'd be no cheer for the widower and his 12-year-old daughter, Bridget. For New York City had taken Christy's only son, headstrong 16 year-old Danny, who's run off without a trace save a single postcard bearing a terse, unforgiving message: "i'm doing grand - don't worry about me," Christy wouldn't have come to the city at all if it weren't for the business. . . and to set up his trees on the corner where he last saw his son, in case Danny came back." -- Google books.
