As you may have already guessed, I’m going to share one of my favorite Christmas songs with you. Before I do this, I’d like to share why it has become among my favorite songs.
Fall On Your Knees is also the title of one of the most brilliant works of fiction I have read in my life thus far. Ann Marie McDonald does an amazingly intelligent job of engaging us in a journey set out of time, place and comfort zones for many of us. With her resounding gift of story, she brings us home with every word to the end of the journey reminding us, once again, all that really matters is love. This book does not need the PR. It deserves it. While I’ve seen her interviewed and watched her hosting/narrating many events on CBC, it has been my good fortune for I can reread the text at any time and hear Ann’s beautiful voice, a Canadian living sister sharing her magnificently woven stories with a fledgling who hopes to one day possess a mere fraction of her amazing literary skill.
May you enjoy both works, here is my favorite version of the song, will always love and miss the man who sings it here:
