Abby and her mother used to live in Florida. But, her father is off fighting in the war against the Nazis and has been listed as missing in action. They had to leave Florida to stay with relatives in New York state. The closer it gets to Christmas the more Abby misses her father. Everything is different here....they don't put a starfish at the top of the Christmas tree, it's snowing and cold, and instead of going to the beach, her cousins want to go sledding and build snowmen. Then her cousins tell her the story of the ghost....every Christmas the spirit of a girl appears. The more Abby learns about the mystery, the more intrigued she is. Then she actually sees the ghost. Can she help the ghostly girl find peace?

This book is a short, quick read. Perfect for middle-grade ages and up, the story is an enjoyable Christmas themed ghost story. It's geared towards children, so there is nothing inappropriate or too frightening for kids. As an adult, I still enjoyed the story. The book is well-written, interesting and lightly spooky. It made for a nice afternoon read. I will definitely be reading more by this author. I love reading kid's books as palate cleansers between heavy adult fiction titles.

When her father, a soldier, is reported missing in action in the autumn of 1944, eleven-year-old Abby and her mother leave their Florida home to stay with relatives in upstate New York. At first Abby is miserably unhappy. Her oldest cousin, Chad, torments her, and his friends are snooty. Her younger cousins are sweet, but they're too little to play with. And of course, she misses her father desperatley and fears he may be dead. But things gradually start to improve between Abby and her cousin, and she makes some friends. Then, as Christmas nears, one of the local girls Abby has befriended tells her of a young girl who drowned in the river on Christmas Day, 1864 while waiting for her father to return home from the Civil War. Now, the girl's ghost supposedly appears every Christmas. When Abby begins to see the ghost, she wonders why she is appearing to her. Is it about Abby's father? Abby herself? Or does the ghost want Abby's help in moving on? Abby has to find out before it's too late. This was an enjoyable, quick read that combines historical fiction with a ghost story. Fans of both genres should enjoy this book.
