Sharing Christmas: Shae Connor
A delightful holiday collection that includes ´´A Christmas Carol´´ and other classic Charles Dickens Christmas stories. As much a part of Christmas as mistletoe and carolers, Dickens´ ´´A Christmas Carol´´ was once read publicly on Christmas Eve each year by Dickens himself. This heartwarming tale continues to stir in us the same feelings of repentance, forgiveness, and love that transformed Ebenezer Scrooge from grumbling, ´´Bah! Humbug!´´ to sharing Tiny Tim´s happy ´´God bless us, every one!´´ Dickens´s other Christmas stories prove as rich as his most famous. ´´A Christmas Tree´´ describes a Victorian Christmas as seen through a child´s delighted eyes. ´´Christmas Dinner´´ celebrates the reunion of a divided family, while the Christmas chapters from The Pickwick Papers move from the exhilaration of a Christmas wedding to a shivery ghost story that foreshadows the spirits seen by Scrooge. Warmly nostalgic and beautifully written, the Christmas stories of Charles Dickens deserve a very special place in our memories and our hearts.
A Sunday Telegraph Book of the Year ´Packed with charm and beautifully illustrated, it´s a book that will solve your gift dilemmas and let you escape the less salubrious aspects of Christmas for a literary wonderland´ Stylist Everybody loves a Christmas story. The tradition of the Twelve Days of Christmas is a tradition of celebration, sharing and giving. And what better way to do that than with a story? Read these stories by the fire, in the snow, travelling home for the holidays. Give them to friends, wrap them up for someone you love, read them aloud, read them alone, read them together. Enjoy the season of peace and goodwill, mystery, and a little bit of magic. There are ghosts here and jovial spirits. Chances at love and tricks with time. There is frost and icicles, mistletoe and sledges. There´s a cat and a dog and a solid silver frog. There´s a Christmas cracker with a surprising gift inside. There´s a haunted house and a SnowMama. There are Yuletides and holly wreaths. Three Kings. And a merry little Christmas time. And for the icing on the Christmas cake, there are twelve festive recipes from Yuletides past and present. Red cabbage, gravlax, turkey biryani, sherry trifle, Mrs Winterson´s mince pies and more.

Set on the scenic fjords of Norway, The Christmas Lights by bestselling author Karen Swan is a moving Christmas tale of love and heartbreak. December 2018, and free-spirited Influencers Bo Loxley and her partner Zac are living a life of wanderlust, travelling the globe and sharing their adventures with their millions of fans. Booked to spend Christmas in the Norwegian fjords, they set up home in a remote farm owned by enigmatic mountain guide Anders and his fierce grandmother Signy. Surrounded by snowy peaks and frozen falls, everything should be perfect. But the camera can lie and with every new post, the ´perfect´ life Zac and Bo are portraying is diverging from the truth. Something Bo can´t explain is wrong at the very heart of their lives and Anders is the only person who´ll listen. June 1936, and fourteen-year old Signy is sent with her sister and village friends to the summer pastures to work as milkmaids, protecting the herd that will sustain the farm through the long, winter months. But miles from home and away from the safety of their families, threat begins to lurk in friendly faces . . . The mountains keep secrets - Signy knows this better than anyone - and as Bo´s life begins to spiral she is forced, like the old woman before her, to question who is friend and who is foe.
