This is a collection of heartwarming stories set in Newfoundland during the Christmas season. At times heartbreaking, but always uplifting at the end, these stories share a touching message with readers that the best gifts are not material things, but rather the kindness we show others.

Bestselling author Robert Hunt tells stories of an athlete who runs a marathon for a girl he never knew, of two soldiers who forget the horrors of war to acknowledge one another on the battlefield during Christmas, a journalist who spends the holiday covering a war story in Darfur, and a man who gives up his prized roses at a competition for the woman he loves.

Also included is the story of a woman who suffered an injury in an automobile accident and looks for divine intervention when she travels to Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta, India.

Praise for Robert Hunt

"Robert Hunt’s writing is a combination of grittiness and tenderness that rings as true as your friendly neighbour who shovels out your driveway after a snowfall and looks a little embarrassed when you thank him.” — The Northeast Avalon Times

About Flanker Press
Turning pages since 1994

Flanker Press is a bright spark in the Newfoundland and Labrador publishing scene. As the province’s most active publisher of trade books, the company now averages twenty new titles per year, with a heavy emphasis on regional non-fiction and historical fiction.

The mission of Flanker Press is to provide a quality publishing service to the local and regional writing community and to actively promote its authors and their books in Canada and abroad.

Now located in Paradise, Flanker Press has grown from a part-time venture in 1994 to a business with eight full-time employees. In the fall of 2004, Flanker Press launched a new imprint, Pennywell Books. This imprint includes literary fiction, short stories, young adult fiction, and children’s books.
