Unearthing Christmas" offers a glimpse into a world before technology became the driving force in everyday existence. Fourteen-year-old Peggy, in 2015, cannot imagine a life without IPads, IPhones, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Lori, a teenager with a personal mission, has no knowledge beyond 1955. She reenters the world through time and space to stop Peggy from stealing treasured possessions. Their meeting ground is a bomb shelter, decorated for Christmas, and completely preserved in a span of 60 years Lori and Peggy enter a fate-filled journey leading to self-awareness, understanding, and ultimately, forgiveness. The story goes beyond an exploration of time periods, "Unearthing Christmas" allows readers to examine and reflect upon their choices, at any age.
