"First published in Great Britain in 2020, as The six tales of Christmas, by Trapeze, an imprint of The Orion Publishing Group Limited"--Title page verso.
Summary Nora and Simon have run the beautiful oak-beamed bookshop in their British village for thirty years. But times are tough and the shop is under threat of closure - this holiday season will really decide their fate. When an elderly man visits the store and buys the one book they've never been able to sell, it gives Nora an idea: she and Simon will send out books those feeling down this time of year and lift people's spirits through the power of reading. The couple quietly deliver books to residents in need of festive cheer, including a single dad trying to make ends meet, a teenage boy grieving for his sister, a local politician battling depression, and a retired teacher living on her own. the books begin to give the recipients hope, one by one, but with the future of the bookshop still on the line, Nora and Simon will need a Christmas miracle to find a happy ending of their own . . .
