This book will delight story-lovers. Twenty-four tales to remember will see you through those dark days before Christmas, with one for every day of Advent. A group of talented authors have worked hard to put together this amazing collection which is so diverse that it can actually be read at any time of the year.
There are mystical, magical stories, ghost stories, and real-life stories. There are stories which restore your faith in human beings. Just so that we don’t get too cosy, we have a darker story about a murder. A story about a jigsaw answers a puzzling question. Some stories hint at the traditional Christmas story, but all with unusual twists.
All of the stories are beautifully crafted and some make such fine use of language they’ll probably bring a tear to your eye and a lump to your throat.
So, stoke up the fire, shut out the night, make yourself comfortable, sit back and enjoy.
