The choreography, sets, and costumes were new, at least to me. This was my family’s Christmas present from A’s mom: row F, seats 14 to 17. I haven’t seen The Nutcracker for years, not since I became a mom myself, and I’ve always wanted to take my children. It was magical. (Slightly less so for the hockey playing child who, nonetheless, got caught out in admitting how cute the little lambs were.)

I was enthralled.


Lilian is the author of Web of Angels, a novel about a mom with DID (multiple personalities). She's also the author of the historical novels, The River Midnight and The Singing Fire, about secrets, friendship and motherhood in 19th century Poland and London.

  1. Beautiful and thanks for sharing Lilian! Sounds like the perfect gift and I’m so happy for you; what a thrill that must have been. Am happy your wee hockey player was able to find something enjoyable as well … so cute!
