Inspired by the poem penned by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Christmas Bells by Jennifer Chiaverini explores the entwining stories of Sophia- a New England school teacher- and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow- an American poet of the 1800s.

The Kirkus Review says this book is "a gentle exploration of tragedy, hope, the power of Christmas, and the possibility of miracles" (August 2015).
