"I read a lot of fiction, particularly Christian fiction. And I enjoy novellas, particularly Christmas stories. Having read scores of them over the past decade or so, I can say without reservation that in every regard -- style, story, substance -- The Golden Ring merits a place on the Christmas Classics shelf right alongside A Christmas Carol, The Other Wise Man and more contemporary bestsellers VanLiere's The Christmas Shoes or Richard Paul Evans' The Christmas Box."

The Golden Ring - A Christmas Story was inspired by a wonderful and sentimental tale my grandmother recounted to me one morning as she reminisced about a special childhood Christmas memory. This Christmas book is a bestseller, and has received international recognition. It has been featured on network radio and television, as well as in dozens of newspapers and magazines, such as Family Circle, which published a condensed version of The Golden Ring in its holiday issue.
It is just days before the Christmas of 1918 in Meyersdale, a picturesque township nestled in the dense snow-covered mountains of western Pennsylvania's coal country. Anna, an idealistic nine-year-old, has an especially close relationship with her father, Joseph; a hardworking engineer on the B&O railroad. One of Anna's most precious possessions is a golden ring that was given to her on her ninth birthday by her parents. A series of puzzling dreams are shared by Joseph and Anna about Jesus, and the giving and receiving of a ring. These visions in the night mystifies them both. The dreams, and some astonishing events demonstrate the importance of Anna's ring. Their search for the meaning of these dreams leads them to share an emotional and bonding Christmas experience. The dreams and events surrounding them would prove to be the harbinger of significant and poignant truths. From it Anna and her father would learn much about the human potential for generosity and the virtues of giving, as well as our capacity for love and faith.
