Five books for Christmas

One of five books for Christmas selected by the Barnes & Noble Review:
Rock Crystal
by Adalbert Stifter

Among the most unusual, moving, and memorable of Christmas stories, this unforgettable parable, written in 1853, transports the reader to the heart of the Alps to share the mystical journey of two children who lose their way in a snowstorm on Christmas Eve. Deceptively simple, yet grand as the landscape it describes.
Read about another book on the list.
