Book Review: The Reindeer Keeper, by Barbara Briggs Ward

Most adults would say there’s no such thing as Santa Claus, but Abbey always believed. And because of her unwavering faith and unselfishness, she was chosen by Santa for a very special mission in The Reindeer Keeper, by Barbara Briggs Ward. Abbey is astonished when a beautiful farmhouse, complete with plenty of land, a big barn and a herd of reindeer, is left to her family by a man with whom they were barely acquainted. Why was Abbey’s family chosen to receive such a generous gift? And why do so many mysteries surround the reindeer and their mysterious caretaker, Thomas?

Abbey’s questions are soon answered, but she also learns that she will play the role of the reindeer keeper for only a short time. She has an aggressive form of cancer, and Santa has charged her with the task of selecting the next reindeer keeper. Who will it be? Will it be possible to find another “believer” like Abbey? Her time is limited, and her family members face other issues they must resolve. But Abbey’s faith and trust, like Rudolph’s glowing nose, will guide them through this tumultuous time and uncover the perfect choice for the next reindeer keeper.

The Reindeer Keeper is a gentle, loving story about family ties, grief and loss, and new beginnings. It’s a Christmas fairy tale for grown-ups that just might make you believe again in the magic of Christmas. This touching tale would make a cherished gift and a classic keepsake for the holiday season. Visit for more information.
