A Miracle Under the Christmas Tree {Book Review}

Real Stories of Hope, Faith and the True Gifts of the Season

Deirdre woke early, just like every December 25. She tiptoed downstairs, hoping against hope that this would be the year her dream would come true. Her parents were already awake and seated at the kitchen table; that fact alone gave the young girl pause, as they were never downstairs on Christmas morning until much later.

"Morning, sleepy head," Ben, Deirdre's father said. "'Bout time you rolled outa the hay!" When Nancy, Deirdre's mother, tried to hide her giggle behind her coffee cup, Deirdre knew something was up.

A MIRACLE UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE is a heartfelt collection of true stories from 27 inspiring writers sharing their cherised holiday moments. Stories of first Christmases, loved ones coming home fro the holidays, finding the true meaning of Christmas from simple acts of giving to others, and so much more.  The book is a touching and uplifting anthology that will make you laugh and warm your heart this holiday season.

Stories filled with remarkable, incredible-but-true, larger-than-life miracles that celebrate the wondrous joys of this special time of year, include:

  • Christmas Treasure: A woman rediscovers a lost holiday treasure in a peculiar place.
  • Canine Christmas: A dog's last Christmas trip home shows a woman the true meaning of the season.
  • Final Christmas: An untimely loss sheds light on an answered prayer
 The small miracles in this anthology show readers the wonders of the season. Filled with countless flashes of holiday memories of hope, faith and happiness, these sort vignettes are moving tributes to the pleasures and joys of Christmas and remind us all that the greatest gifts in life can't be wrapped.
