Summary: Encouraged to share her thoughts, a little girl writes a heart-breaking letter to Santa Claus.
A Timely Letter to Santa Claus is an expertly-crafted, thought-provoking short story, approximately five pages in length. It is not suitable for children.
This is a rather sad letter to Santa from the perspective of a young girl, one where she shares what is going on in her life. She doesn't understand what's going on, but when you read her words you see that it's not a really happy life like she thinks it is. I had goose bumps the entire time reading it. She talks about her brother and how she's sick and ... and I just wanted to hug her so bad. Amazing story in only 5 pages.
For those of y'all interested, it is currently free on Amazon.
