A Not So Perfect Christmas by Nora Cook Smith
Christmas isn't always gingerbread houses and mistletoe. In this collection of stories a slacker college student comes to the aid of a difficult feline. A young woman must bless her past before she moves on in her career as a minister. A coyote's wilderness howl helps a young woman to discover life still has possibilities. Whether it's getting along with an ex-wife's child or a malefactor gets his just desserts, these stories are about jumping into life's messy situations and celebrating the miracles.
