The Halifax Chronicle-Herald calls award-winning comedian Bette MacDonald "a superlative actress, a polished ad libber...making the audience howl with delight by a lift of her eyebrows, a shift of elbow or a single word."
For years, Bette has delighted audiences with her irreverent and lovable Cape Breton character Mary Morrison. Now Mary is here to entertain readers with her stories and memories of the Christmas season. Mary Morrison's Cape Breton Christmas is a treasury of all things holiday, including Mary's advice for coping with family, gift-giving dos and don'ts, and even her favourite seasonal recipes. This new softcover edition of the popular books is a hilarious and colourful collection of Cape Breton Christmas humour.
