This release is the latest 2013 edit and visual reproduction of the five 6x9 books. This is book 1 of 5. This collection of books require downloading the free Adobe Digital Editions Software. I support the right of artists and authors to protect their work and be compensated for their labors. C. John Coombes

Follow the incredible journey of an orphaned nine year old girl left to face a frightening and unforgiving world. Live the joy and heartbreak that fate forces upon "The Child".

CLAUS: A Christmas Incarnation, Volume One, The Child, is a 700+ page work that includes some illustrations, poems, and songs, also by the author. It is the first of five books that encompass the 850,000 word novel.

1854. Elizabeth Dennison, a now elderly woman, awaits the arrival of a long lost acquaintance. The meeting, initially dreaded as much as desired, fortunately rekindles an old friendship. It is in this reunion, a passing of memories and knowledge, that the guest requests specific details of Elizabeth's life.

So begins a story during the early 1800's, days after Elizabeth Dennison is removed from her home and sickly mother to be cared for by the wealthy Claussen Family. A favor for which, in return, she is to provide service as a maiden servant.

At a young age, Elizabeth faces a wary relationship with the Claussens and her new surroundings. Most of all, she is both frightened and mesmerized by Christopher Claussen, a powerful man and husband to Lady Rebecca.

It is this relationship that ends up sweeping Elizabeth away from her home in Scandinavia to battle the perils of a voyage across an ocean and a life on the American frontier.

Elizabeth comes to believe that Christopher holds sway not only over her life, but the world as a whole in something more than a natural way. He is god-like in her eyes and becomes very much the focus of her fragile childhood years.

Volume one is a fulfilling read unto itself. It is a saga rich with ambiance, details of the era, and characters that are as real as life. If you desire to be swept away with Elizabeth on a journey through time and emotion then you will not regret reading this story.

"CLAUS: A Christmas Incarnation" is an incredible novel. The author, C. John Coombes, did a wonderful job of bringing his story to life and making it seem real. He also provided beautiful illustrations. In addition to being an artist that can draw, he is also an artist that can paint with his words.

Everything in the story seemed so real, from the descriptions of the era, to the emotions that the characters were experiencing. Their imperfections also show their humanity. I found myself totally being caught up in the tale, caught up to the point that I read over 400 pages in one sitting.

I cannot recommend this novel enough. I truly believe that "CLAUS" is destined to be a classic.” The preceding is an excerpt from Paige Lovitt of Reader Views

In eighth grade, my English teacher assigned To Kill a Mockingbird to our class as our semester book review title. Reading it revolutionized the way I looked at the world. I fell in love with the characters. They became my friends. I read and reread the little black paperback until the cover fell off and the pages became so dog-eared I couldn’t turn them. I never expected to read another book like it.

And then I read Claus. And that extraordinary way of looking at the world returned to me after so many years. Christopher, Elizabeth, Rebecca, and all the other characters became so real to me that I dreamed about them, wondered how they were doing during the course of the day, and expected to see them when I turned the corner on my daily walk. The book enchants, delights, engages, and captures your heart. It is a book you don’t want to stop reading and a book you don’t want to come to an end. It is a book that, I would imagine, Harper Lee wouldn’t be able to put down.
