The much loved star of Amazing Grace is back for a touching new story about a very special time of year. Grace loves Christmas. She loves the nativity, the presents and being with her family. But this year everything is going to be different and Grace is sure that she is not going to like it! When Ma says a family from Trinidad are coming to stay Grace is horrified. Why should she share her special family time with someone else? But soon Grace learns that sharing makes Christmas even more special than usual! A warm-hearted story full of the excitement of a very special celebration.

Synopsis

Grace at Christmas by Mary Hoffman

Grace loves Christmas - acting out the nativity story, opening presents, celebrating with Ma, Nana and Paw-Paw. But this Christmas Nana announces they will have visitors. After some wise words from Nana, Grace's generous spirit shines through. And in the end, as they all share a special surprise, Grace thinks it could be the best Christmas ever!

I didn't change my surname when I got married.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a garage mechanic.
