Synopsis: A moving tribute to the true meaning of Christmas, this charming holiday collection features over fifty true stories that will make you laugh, cry and remind you that the greatest gifts in life can’t be wrapped.

There’s something truly magical about Christmas. Combining two charming story collections—A Miracle Under the Christmas Tree and A Kiss Under the Mistletoe—into one beautiful package, these heartwarming stories of the kindness of strangers, reunions with loved ones and the blessings of answered prayers capture the spirit of the season.

From a snowy impromptu game of Frisbee in the center of a holiday light display to a woman’s trepidation as she arrives home on Christmas Eve with crates of rescued shelter dogs, these stories will brighten the spirit of you and your family this season and for many future seasons to come. Some stories are funny, some are sweet and some are heartbreaking, but all of them show that if our hearts are open to giving and receiving love during this special season, incredible things can happen.
