 Driving a busload of happy, young scouters on rain-slick roads John Benjamin Frosst is faced suddenly with the unimaginable. In a fraction of a moment, he makes a decision, selflessly offering his life in exchange for the lives of innocents.
Now confronted with the knowledge that the comfortable existence he had expected is in tatters, Ben realizes that, instead of doing the serving he loves, he must now humbly receive it from others.
Hampered by this new reality, the fine man that is still Ben Frosst discovers the term ‘handicapped’ is only a starting point from which to find new ways to give and to help.
That service comes in many forms.
And, with enough love and support, anything is possible.
 Sometimes, life simply doesn’t turn out the way you plan.And that's okay.
Diane Stringam Tolley’s newest Christmas novel is a charming, heart-warming story of sacrifice, love and the strength of family and community.

“For some of us receive one gift,
And some, another. True.
Her gift was drying silverware.
And mine? Is telling you.”

Diane Stringam Tolley’s Words is a collection of thoughts and feelings from six decades of living.
A happy romp from childhood to old age. Ranch to city life.
In rhyme.
And isn’t life just a little bit better in rhyme?
...................................................................................................

North Pole Society is uncomplicated.
Prosperous.
Happy.
But everything the Elves of the North Pole hold dear is about to be challenged and, perhaps, changed forever.
Can a society that has survived – even thrived – based on love and goodwill, endure the advent of modern ideas. Incentives programs?
Buzz words?
Can generations of innocence, helpfulness, friendliness and generosity outlast the introduction of an effiency expert?
Will the love that forms the beating heart of North Pole Society survive? 
In her long-awaited sequel to (Kris Kringle’s) Magic, Diane Stringam Tolley has created a tale of friendship, perseverance and the enduring power of love.
