Coal Dust Kisses: A Christmas Memoir
By: Will Ferguson

This is a wonderfully entertaining book about one person’s journey through continents and Christmas times. Will is a wonderful storyteller, and he is so funny. He makes the reader laugh out loud many times throughout the book.

Will is a funny, poignant and heartfelt storyteller. The reader will feel transported to take this trip through time and continents with Will. Will traces a single story of coal dust and Christmas from his grandfather’s childhood in Scotland through to his own life as a father.

This book is a must read for individuals, given the upcoming Christmas season. The reader will treated to the real meaning of Christmas, which has nothing to do with large presents and consumerism. Instead, the kids and people had another special gift that they looked forward to on Christmas morning. I will leave it to the reader to find out for him/herself about this wonderful gift. The book is like a breath of fresh air.

5 stars
