About the Book



Twenty of the best Christmas stories of all time are collected in one handsomely illustrated anthology. Selected for their literary quality and spiritual integrity, these time-honored favorites will resonate with readers year after year.



Book Synopsis



For readers who are tired of Christmas commercialism, or who feel that Santa Claus and reindeer don't tell the whole story, these classic gems provide a winning alternative. Selected for their insightfulness, spiritual value, and literary quality (nothing moralistic here) they project the spirit of the season in a fresh, compelling manner that will resonate with readers of all ages - from children too young to read to themselves, to parents and grandparents who enjoy reading stories aloud.

Home for Christmas includes time-tested favorites by some of the world's most beloved children's authors - Pearl Buck, Selma Lagerlöf, Henry van Dyke, Madeleine L'Engle, Elizabeth Goudge, Rebecca Caudill, and Ruth Sawyer - as well as little-known European stories appearing in English for the first time.



Review Quotes




If you're giving one book for Christmas, make it this one.--Jim Trelease, author, The Read-Aloud Handbook

This is undoubtedly the most literary collection of Christmas stories to be published this season. The editors at Plough have taken a conservative approach, eschewing sentimental claptrap in favor of classic, elegant writing. There are some standard-bearers here, including Henry van Dyke's enduring yarn The Other Wise Man and Pearl S. Buck's gentle and touching story Christmas Day in the Morning. Some contributions are deeply theological (Madeleine L'Engle's Transfiguration) while others offer the dark, discerning cadences of a timeless fable (Selma Lagerlof's The Christmas Rose). The collection has an international flavor, with stories set in Cuba, Germany, Siberia, Palestine, Denmark and Spain, as well as in Vermont and New York City. Readers who crave literary excellence as well as a heartwarming Christmas message will relish this carefully selected and intelligent anthology.--Publishers Weekly
