Description
"Christmas began with a good but harassed woman giving birth, with great joy, in difficult domestic circumstances," writes Michelle Lovric in her introduction to this anthology. "Somewhere between then and now, circumstances have changed…. [But] in many ways, all women at Christmas have something in common with Mary: stress and happiness, in varying proportions." Letters, diaries, poems, and stories comprise this volume, which reflects the experiences of more than 50 women at Christmastime, from the fourteenth century to the present. An excerpt from Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot's Christmas and Amy Lowell's "A New Year's Card" appear, as do reflections and fictional works by Colette, Charlotte Brontė, George Sand, Edith Sitwell, Virginia Woolf, Christina Rossetti, Mrs. Patrick Campbell, Nancy Mitford, and St. Bridget of Sweden.
