"Willie Nelson, country music's quintessential musician, displays all the wit and warmth of his homespun style of storytelling in an inspiring holiday novel based on his classic Christmas song, "Pretty Paper." More than fifty years ago, Willie Nelson's beloved Christmas song "Pretty Paper" first hit the airwaves. And for all these years, Willie has wondered about the real-life Texas street vendor, selling wrappings and ribbons, who inspired his song. Who was this poor soul? What did his painful trials say about our loves, our hopes, our dreams in this holiday season--and in the rest of our lives?"-- Provided by publisher.

A compelling read, told in a way that you wanted to know "what happened next". I also researched a little more about the Willie's real life since this was a fictional story. The part about teaching Sunday school was a surprise.

One of the best books I've read in a long time, enjoyed it very much.
