Okay, it’s a little late (or early?!) for Christmas stories, but I wanted to share my thoughts on two wonderful children’s books. Mary Clive’s Christmas with the Savages was the perfect children’s classic to read in December. It’s about Evelyn, an 8-year-old who much prefers the company of adults to other children. Steeling Christmas has a touch of everything you could possibly want to entertain you in a book. There is romance, drama and suspense, family stress as well as family support, as well as all the old characters from the Satans Savages MC make your heart swell revisiting each and every one/5.

CHRISTMAS WITH THE SAVAGES by Mary Clive is based on real events and people. It is the story of a small girl's Christmas holiday in a large Edwardian country house is effortlessly funny. At Tamerlane Hall, Evelyn finds a horde of children: the gentle Glens, the plaintive Howliboos, and above all, the uninhibited Savages. They are controlled - or not - by a host of parents, . Christmas with the Savages might not be immediately accessible to a modern child, needing perhaps the intervention of an adult reading it aloud. It was a recent BBC Radio 4 ‘Book of the Week’, and this is probably the ideal way for a delightful period piece to be preserved.
