A Friend for Christmas by Gloria Stewart
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.5 MB
Overview: Yorkshire, Christmas, 1953. They’d had a cold and hungry winter but Gloria’s mother had scrimped and saved to ensure the fire was lit and her five children each had a plate full of food. There was even a place at the table ready for an unexpected visitor; every year there seemed to be someone in need.
Despite the busy household, Gloria often ended up playing by herself. That is, until a knock on the door that brought a scruffy pup into her life and her heart.
Over the years, Gloria adopted many more dogs, even the odd cat, who helped her through the good times and the bad; through illness, love and loss. They even helped her to carry on her mother’s legacy, bringing warmth, food and happiness to those alone at Christmas.
