The Dark is Rising: Christmas Eve

Again, I’m dropping you into the middle of a great book. Here’s the “Christmas Eve” chapter from the fantabulous “The Dark is Rising” by Susan Cooper. I re-read this book (or re-listen to my audio version) every year at Christmastime.

Amazon blurb:

On the Midwinter Day that is his eleventh birthday, Will Stanton discovers a special gift — that he is the last of the Old Ones, immortals dedicated to keeping the world from domination by the forces of evil, the Dark. At once, he is plunged into a quest for the six magical Signs that will one day aid the Old Ones in the final battle between the Dark and the Light. And for the twelve days of Christmas, while the Dark is rising, life for Will is full of wonder, terror, and delight.

    Kara,
    Early Merry Christmas wishes to you. I have really been enjoying your Christmas readings (even though I am running behind). I always REread favorites at Christmas and always bring home children’s Christmas books to enjoy. Tonight’s was “The Christmas Tree Ride” by Mary Neville, illustrated by Megan Lloyd, 1992, new to me. A wonderful story.

    Hope you are feeling better. Take good care.
