The Last Shepard & Tales of the Last Ornament
Celebrating the Fifth Anniversary
In the spirit of the holiday season, we reflect back on a magical Christmas season five years ago when more than 150 people from around the US, gathered at the Park Plaza Hotel to celebrate, bound together by one common thread ~ a store, an ornament program, a book, and a cause. For those of you who participated in the program, we hope you still enjoy deciphering the codes encrypted in the ornaments and sharing memories with your family as you decorate your Christmas tree.
Blackstone's of Beacon Hill is proud to mark the 5th Anniversary of the publication of Mark Duffield's endearing holiday story, The Last Shepard and Tales of the Tenth Ornament. As a special Christmas gift, Blackstone's is pleased to send along an audio version of the book as narrated by radio personality, Ray Brown. Click here to download the two part audio version.
