Riassunto: In this heartwarming novel, Greg Kincaid, the bestselling author of A Dog Named Christmas, revisits the early life of one of that book's protagonists and brings us a holiday tale of redemption, hope and forgiveness.
It's 1962, and as Christmas approaches so does one of the worst snow and ice storms in Kansas history. Without utilities and emergency services, it is a dangerous time for the residents of Cherokee County. For the McCray family, it is even worse. Big Bo McCray is the county road maintainer, and it is his duty to keep the roads clear -- but all tasks seem more difficult to Bo and his wife Cora due to the recent death of their only son, John.
Losses begin to pile up for the family like the snow on their rural roads. John's wife and two daughters move off the McCray family farm and return to Minnesota, leaving the youngest member of the family, twelve-year-old George, behind with his grandparents. Young George has been hit hard by his father's death and hangs on to the farm, the only thing left to connect him to his father. As George retreats into his grief, Bo and Cora's focus shifts to their struggling grandson. Then, when an alcoholic neighbor does a stint in the county jail, someone must care for his dog, Tucker, an Irish Setter. Tucker comes to the McCrays with his own pain yet learns to trust George as boy and dog form a bond that helps George begin to deal with his grief and helps him take the first steps into manhood.
The touching prequel to the bestselling novel A Dog Named Christmas
The sleeper hit of 2008, A Dog Named Christmas became a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie a year later, seen by more than twelve million people in the United States alone. Now, in Christmas with Tucker, Greg Kincaid brings back one of that book?s most endearing characters, sharing the moving story of George, a young boy dealing with the loss of his father, and the dog that comes into his life to offer him hope and a touch of courage.
It is the winter of 1962, and Kansas is hit with one of the worst blizzards in its history. It is during this cruel season that twelve-year-old George is called upon to endure more than even most grown men could withstand?the death of his father and the upkeep of the family farm that is his legacy.
When his mother and sisters leave for Minnesota, George has only his grandparents and the companionship of Tucker, an Irish setter, to help him persevere through these most difficult challenges. Can he find the strength to walk the road that leads to healing, finding his true self and ultimately becoming a man? A coming-of-age story for readers of all ages, Christmas with Tucker is a classic Christmas story about a young man?s love for his dog, his family, and his farm.
