A Ruby Christmas

Review of A Ruby Christmas

Ruby Joy Buckner, cowgirl, has never left the Lone Star State, but at her father’s request, she takes her faithful canine companion and travels the world in search of Nativity pieces. As Ruby collects the pieces, she also collects a few unexpected surprises, including an awareness of the beauty in other cultures, and quite a menagerie of new friends, thanks in part to Yippee Ti Yi Yo who charms everyone they meet.

Ruby’s budding awareness of life outside Texas opens her eyes to a world of whimsy, and the Nativity pieces she collects are unusual. Will her father approve her eclectic collection … and the changes that travel brought to Ruby’s life?

MY REVIEW:     A Ruby Christmas is a very sweet, quick read about a father who seeks to give his daughter the trip her deceased mother had planned to take with her. Ruby Joy goes on a grand adventure as she travels with her show dog, Yippee Ti Yi Yo.   She is able to meet many people who have known and loved her mother and find treasured pieces to take back to Texas to create a new Nativity Scene with her beloved father. 
4 Stars!
