The True Meaning of Christmas
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.
