Hunter Clarke wanted one thing for Christmas: to spend it with his dad and his brother. He misses being included in any guy trips since his parents divorced and he went to live with his mom. So he’s less than happy when his mother tells him that he won a contest to spend Christmas in West Monroe, Louisiana, with a family named the Robertsons. For some reason, they’re supposed to be a big deal. How did he win a contest he didn’t enter? Besides, he’s never heard of them and sure doesn’t want to spend Christmas in a swamp with a bunch of strangers.

Korie Robertson is excited to open her heart and home to Hunter and show him what the Christmas season looks like for the Robertson family. And like it or not, Hunter experiences it firsthand. From duck-hunting disasters with the bearded guys, to learning to cook with Miss Kay, Hunter quickly discovers what it’s like to live with this boisterous, yet loving family. Putting on his headphones and ignoring them is not an option. Before long, Hunter begins to let his guard down. But with Christmas and the end of his trip fast approaching, will it be too little, too late? Or will Hunter be open to the greatest gift of all?
Hunter Clarke wants to spend Christmas with his father and older brother, but his mother, newly divorced, worries about Hunter’s inability to accept the change in their domestic situation. On a hopeful whim, she enters her son into a contest to celebrate Christmas with the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame. Her wish is that they can do what she cannot—find a way to reach Hunter before she loses him. But Hunter is less than thrilled when he wins to learn that he will be celebrating the holidays down South with the Robertson clan. Miss Kay, on the other hand, is very excited to welcome him into their home with a big helping of faith served with a side of humor. VERDICT: From the clever use of Christmas carol puns in chapter headings to the story’s charming resolution, CF readers will savor the Robertson matriarch’s down-home details. Her heartwarming tale will be much in demand by fans of the reality show and those looking for a hopeful and inspirational book with a holiday focus.
