The sleeper hit of 2008, A Dog Named Christmas became a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie a year later, seen by more than twelve million people in the United States alone. Now, in Christmas with Tucker, Greg Kincaid brings back one of that books most endearing characters, sharing the moving story of George, a young boy dealing with the loss of his father, and the dog that comes into his life to offer him hope and a touch of courage.
It is the winter of 1962, and Kansas is hit with one of the worst blizzards in its history. It is during this cruel season that twelve-year-old George is called upon to endure more than even most grown men could withstandthe death of his father and the upkeep of the family farm that is his legacy.
When his mother and sisters leave for Minnesota, George has only his grandparents and the companionship of Tucker, an Irish setter, to help him persevere through these most difficult challenges. Can he find the strength to walk the road that leads to healing, finding his true self and ultimately becoming a man? A coming-of-age story for readers of all ages, Christmas with Tucker is a classic Christmas story about a young mans love for his dog, his family, and his farm.
"In this prequel to A Dog Named Christmas, Kincaid spins an immensely satisfying coming-of-age tale about how 12-year-old George McCray, mourning his fathers recent death from a tractor accident, finds solace in befriending a neglected Irish setter named Tucker…Although I am well aware that Christmas titles flood bookstores each December 1, I also know that Christmas with Tucker, along with the authors earlier novel, should rise above the literary tinsel and glitz to become a holiday classic. "
"This simple but strong story celebrates the beauty of everyday things, the power of love and humility, the singular grace that is a good dog, and the mysterious ability of that grace to transform the human heart. A perfect Christmas read." Dean Koontz
"I dont own a dog but after reading this book, I have an irresistible urge to go out and get one. Christmas with Tucker is simply that poignant and lovely." A. J. Jacobs
"It was the bleakest of Christmas seasons that year: blizzards followed by ice paralyzed the entire county. No one would have blamed the thirteen-year-old boy for taking the easy way out, or expected the aged grandfather to single-handedly pull off a miracle. Stirred into author Greg Kincaid's wondrous crucible are an empathetic grandmother, a sorrowing mother, a shy earliteen girl, a sodden alcoholic neighboroh yes, and an Irish setter named Tucker, with a heart filled with love for all of them. Taken all together: a Christmas story for the ages!" Joseph Wheeler, Editor/Compiler of the bestselling Christmas in My Heart story anthologies

George, an ordinary young teenager, dealing with extraordinary life events will endear himself to you as you read his story.
A dog, Irish setter Tucker, along with his grandparents and the family farm, aids George's journey of surviving and growing up on a farm in the 1960s.
When I finished reading Christmas with Tucker, I had a warm glow of contentment and a sense of satisfaction that the world was a better place. Then I began to make a list of friends and relatives who appreciate the finer things in life and with Christmas just around the corner, needing a gift. This is also a perfect choice for families that enjoy reading aloud together.

Although there is nothing objectionable in this book, it is written at an adult reading level and does deal with some mature subject matter.
