Winter's wrath threatens the already meagre Christmas of the Stones, a depression-era Ontario farm family, in the first story in this collection. John Forrest's Christmas stories recount the challenges, excitement, and joy of yuletide as they follow the Stones through two decades.

In the tradition of O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi,” the five stories in this collection capture the spirit and emotion of life at this special time of the year.

Forrest gives loving attention to historical detail, and each story is richly complemented by an original, full-page Chantal Bennett illustration.

Praise for Home for Christmas:

"Sweet, personal, and thoroughly Canadian. Forrest finds the quiet, special moments that reveal the best in people. You'll enjoy." Julie E. Czerneda, award-winning author of Reap the Wild Wind.
