Product Description

Verna Lind expects Christmas of 1952 to be the best holiday she’s had since the war ended. But as she’s leaving the bank, a frigid wind off Lake Erie catches her hard-earned Christmas club savings, whisking the bills into the busy streets of downtown Cleveland and devastating her plans. Strangers come to her aid, though no one anticipates the power of their chance encounter or the seeds of happiness Verna’s lost money will sow. From Barbara Hinske, best-selling author of the Rosemont series, comes this heartwarming Christmas tale celebrating the generosity of the human spirit and the irresistible pull of love — an instant holiday classic for admirers of It’s a Wonderful Life and The Gift of the Magi.

I purchased this book "sight-unseen" after seeing the cover on Facebook and I''m soooooo glad that I did! The story takes place in 1952 in Cleveland, and is a heartwarming account of a group of people whose lives were touched by the kindness of two strangers helping a woman who had fallen on the street and lost her entire Christmas savings - $30.00 all in five dollar bills. Each character has an interesting story to tell and the story evolves around "finding" a five dollar bill!! This book just reminds you over and over of the traditional Christmases of decades ago and just how much fun they were!!
The story touched my heart in so many ways! There were reminders of Christmas when I was a child in the 50''s -- mom baking and decorating and sewing a wardrobe for the doll that Santa was going to bring me, and her mother working busy in her kitchen and always wearing an apron. And people on the street saying hello and wishing you "Merry Christmas", and collecting gifts and toys and wrapping them to give to families who had fallen on hard times. And the baking smells wafting through the house all while Christmas music was playing on the Hi-Fi.
If you are looking for just the right novel that grasps Christmas and all its joy and wonderment, "The Christmas Club" is for you!!!

This is one of the loveliest stories I have read in quite some time.

It is 1952 and a woman slips and falls on the ice and loses her total Christmas Club money. It is a total of $30.00 and all in $5.00 bills. Those $5.00 bills change lives.

Each $5.00 is found by someone different and each of them become a gift to someone who badly needs the money.

Underneath all the generosity, there is the fact that the 2 people who helped the woman who lost her money have lost something much greater. They have lost one another, and they are each searching very hard.

This story takes the reader into a Christmas from another era. It is an era where a not very large donated amount of money can make the recipient feel as though they have won the lottery.

It can be something as simple as helping with a lay away purchase for a needy family, or a Christmas tree for a very proud widow. Each $5.00 means a great deal to the person who can feel generous at heart. At Christmas, being generous and kind is a gift we give ourselves.

Ms Hinske has created a time and place where people think of others and feel great for being able to do so. Each of her characters are people we would all like to meet.

If you need a pick me up or a sense of well being, this is a story you will like very much.

When I read THE CHRISTMAS CLUB, I went back after finishing the novella because I was positive that there were too many bills! The money was here and there and everywhere and I actually sat down and wrote down who found the money, each bill and what happened to it. The novella reminded of reading something written by O''Henry because of the twists and turns. But just like a cat falling through the air, the storyline came right -side up at the end. The finish to the novella was almost as satisfying as...and they all lived happily ever after.

Barbara Hinske has the talent to twist a story around and take the reader right with her. My favorite books are those that I cannot predict as to where the storyline will lead. Just loved the entire novella and great for Christmas gifts.

I started reading "The Christmas Club" around 3:00 one morning just after I went to bed and was immediately immersed in the story of Verna, Edward, and others in early 1950s Cleveland and how something as simple as a $5.00 bill can change someone''s life for the better, sometimes without that person even knowing it.

Barbara Hinske has taken a number of people who did not know each other and interwoven their lives together by simple acts of kindness and selfless caring. Each life is touched in an honest and pure way that not only allows the receiver to feel better, but also warms the soul of the giver.

The book is short, written in Hinske''s usual comfortable style, and can easily be read in one or two sittings. It is perfect to read while waiting in traffic or at a doctor''s office. Once you start reading "The Christmas Club," time will fly and all of a sudden you will be sad to see that you have reached the end of the book -- that is what happened to me.

Thank you Barbara Hinske for another enjoyable read!!

Six five-dollar bills equals thirty dollars. Not much money by today’s standards. But in the time when Christmas savings clubs were popular, it represented a whole year of saving so you could afford to buy gifts for your loved ones. Losing your Christmas club money could spell disaster for the holidays. But in The Christmas Club one person losing their Christmas club money turned into Christmas miracles for many other people including the person who suffered the loss. Barbara Hinske tells a beautiful story for the Christmas season that truly shows the best in people when they let themselves be led by the Christmas spirit to put others ahead of themselves. A very enjoyable read and a good reminder to us today to think more about helping others and less about ourselves.

The Christmas Club is a wonderful story about what it means to spread the true meaning of Christmas. To give of oneself for others during the most wonderful time of the year.

When Verna Lind loses her Christmas Club money by a gust of wind she has no idea what those five dollar bills will spark in the people who find them. And even though Verna is none the wiser because a good Samaritan selflessly returns her lost money from his own wallet, good circles back around to her in the end.

Loved this book. Totally understand why Hallmark made it into a Christmas movie. Kudos Barbara Hinske!

The Christmas Club is a delightful holiday story set in 1952 Cleveland. Verna Lind has just retrieved her hard saved money from her Christmas Club account when a brisk wind off Lake Erie sweeps the money, thirty dollars all in fives, from her hands blowing them swiftly away. Two young people, attorney Edward Fuller and Carol Clark, a striking young woman in a bright red coat, come quickly to her aid.

The pair promises to help Mrs. Lind recover her money once they get her safety situated back in the bank. Of course, they realize that the money is long gone, but Edward has five five dollar bills which he will give her saying this was all he could find. Carol has a single five dollar bill and gives it to Edward to put with his so that Verna''s savings will be restored. Little do they know how this investment in humanity will reward them.

Meanwhile, six different people find the five dollar bills and go on to do good for others. In a holiday story with shades of A Wonderful Life, hints of The Gift of the Magi, and a whole lot of Pay it Forward, this story should become a Christmas classic on its own.

This was a delightful story that I greedily read from cover to cover. It''s characters are delightful and relatable, and it hardens to a much simpler time. I definitely recommend this book!

A short story filled with feel good mini stories throughout that will warm your heart. I grew up in northeastern Ohio and one of the highlights of Christmas was to go downtown with my family to shop for presents and enjoy all the beautiful lights and decorations. I could relate to Higbee''s, train station, bakery, nut shop, and more from Christmas in Cleveland in the 50''s. I love the flow and lightness of the story, frequently found myself smiling as I read. I loved of the synchronicities that are all around us in life as we pay attention and look for them! Thank you for this happy read.
