Dove Review

Can a humble young girl share the holiday spirit with a town where no one has ever heard of Christmas? Ironsville is a small town where Christmas is against the law. A wealthy business owner, D.D. Kovet, has a monopoly on everything—even the Christmas spirit. He has ruled with heavy hand for so long that no one remembers ever celebrating the holiday.

One day a young orphan girl, Angela, appears in the village square selling sprigs of holly. The town does not know what to make of this mysterious stranger who travels about town with a magical wolf companion. Angela intrigues the townspeople with gentle goodwill and kindness. Soon the town begins to delight in the long-forgotten joy of Christmas. The magic of holiday cheer touches their hearts in a way they have never before experienced. Soon they begin to believe love and joy can triumph over the hardest of hearts.

This delightful tale offers magic, enchantment and charm sure to delight viewers of all ages. The subject of bullying is addressed in a tasteful way, which provides parents an opportunity to discuss problem behavior with their children. Angela’s tender heart and determination to bring change to Ironsville invigorates the citizens of this little village. She shares her belief in the goodness of the human spirit when she states “humans are cruel when they don’t understand.” Viewers of all ages will be thrilled with this delightful holiday story and we are pleased to award it the Dove “Family Approved” Seal for all ages.
