KIRKUS REVIEW

By the fiction editor of Good Housekeeping where this story made its first appearance, this is again designed to catch a sentimental moment in a sentimental season. Cissie Grant, snowbound on Christmas Eve aboard the Brazos Valley & Central, six- and travelling alone, disintegrated in tears to the consternation of her Uncle Edgar- who happened to be aboard the train. It is Uncle Edgar, in doubtful standing with her family and even more doubtful standing with the Sheriff, who takes the situation in hand, creates a Christmas for Cissie, and a Santa Claus (who looked suspiciously like the Sheriff) with a bona fide redness of the nose... An extra, for plus sale.
