During the winter of 1917, all of Russia had fallen into dark and tumultuous times as the reign of the Czars came to a bitter and violent end. But in a small Siberian village famous for producing the finest bells in the world, the townspeople made their usual preparations for a Christmas tradition that went back many generations. For eight-year-old Anya and her widowed father, this Christmas had special significance. This Christmas, Anya was one of the girls chosen from the village to ring in Christmas morn with her very own Christmas bell.

This beautiful illustrated story underscores the true reason for celebrating Christ's birth. First presented at the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's 2005 Christmas concerts by acclaimed British actress, Claire Bloom. A CD and DVD version of the original presentation, featuring the music of Alfred Reed performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square, is included with the book.
