Miracles and Magic: Three Tales of Christmas (Paperback)
Christmas is just not Christmas without the gifts of miracles and magic. In this trio of holiday tales, a mysterious stranger connects three families and illustrates how to find the joy and meaning not only just in Christmas, but also in everyday life.
To say that fourteen-year-old Billy is angry is an understatement. Orphaned two years earlier, he is exiled to a group home where he wonders if he will ever again find the happiness of a family's love. In "Wooden Angels," with the help of an old man, Billy is about to discover the gifts he never knew he had.
In "The Christmas Wish," after another fight with his father, teenager J.J. decides to run away from his life-and his future-during a Christmas Eve snowstorm. He soon realizes, with the help of a new friend, that anything is possible.
Father Tim is struggling with his faith and the fact that his first parish will soon be demolished. Just when he thinks all hope is dashed, he meets a wise man who encourages him to always be willing to take a "Leap of Faith."
Miracles and Magic shares the poignant journeys of three lost souls as they rely on a stranger's gentle guidance and kind actions to find themselves and the significance behind Christmas.
