A snowy 1940 Christmas finds twelve-year-old Donnie headed for his grandparents’ farm in central New Hampshire.  Donnie’s mother is recuperating from an operation–but Christmas At Eagle Pond involves no further drama.  There are no heart-stopping climactic moments, no personality clashes, no life-changing character epiphanies.
