75th Anniversary Edition. Fall 2021. In color!

A Grandma for Christmas is an enchanting story of Christmas in a far-off corner of the world. With the wonderful, unhurried charm of the 19th century, the Roland family celebrates Christmas on their farm in the Norwegian mountains.

The hustle and bustle of preparation, days spent in the bakehouse making bread and festive holiday cakes, gifts fashioned in secret by loving hands—though the Rolands celebrate differently, their Christmas spirit is the same as ours today.

With Christmas approaching, young Gunnuf Roland is worried about his elderly neighbor, Fru Solem. He brings her kindling, fish to eat, and splits wood for her fire, knowing she needs a little extra help. He remembers his own dear grandmother, listening to her stories, playing games, and many other kindnesses. To Gunnuf it seems there should be a grandma in every home—especially at Christmastime.

A glossary of Norwegian terms and seven authentic Norwegian recipes are included!

The author’s dedication: To my Sisters and Brother, who with me often listened to Christmas stories of Norway told us by our father, the Gunnuf (the main character) of this story.
