About the Book

The true meaning of Christmas emerges in Bess Streeter Aldrich’s two enchanting stories about reunited families, good fellowship, and restored faith. The head may tell the heart all sorts of things, but at Christmastime the heart is stronger, so take a journey back through Christmases when something quite ordinary turns out to be miraculous. Both heartfelt and genuine, the stories “Journey into Christmas” and “Star across the Tracks” remind us to cherish the holidays with those we love, the ways we grow, and the memories we make throughout life.

In her short stories and novels she recreated the ups and downs of small-town living in hopes that her readers would understand the hardships and struggles of the times but also see the virtues and hopes that became a part of these prairie times in the Midwest.
