No season beats Christmas for being sentimental. Somehow all things converge to make it a season for giving, caring, and sharing, especially with family. Undeniably, the stories we share make us inseparable from our families. Some stories become everyone’s story by capturing the essence of Christmas. Those are the ones that become classics, the ones we tell and retell until we know them by heart.
This marvelous collection began innocently enough one wintry day when a student challenged Joe Wheeler to write a Christmas story. After composing his first story, he began recalling those his mother used to tell each year, and finding others, old and new. Years later, he now shares with us the best of his timeless treasury of heartwarming classics from the golden age of Christmas stories. Well-known authors such as Pearl S. Buck, Madeleine L’Engle, Taylor Caldwell, O. Henry, and Norman Vincent Peale offer their favorite tales.
Once you read Christmas in My Heart, your Christmas won’t be the same without it.
