About the Book
This is a collection of heartwarming stories set in Newfoundland during the Christmas season. At times heartbreaking, but always uplifting at the end, these stories in THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS share a touching message with readers that the best gifts are not material things, but rather the kindness we show others.
Bestselling author Robert Hunt tells stories of an athlete who runs a marathon for a girl he never knew, of two soldiers who forget the horrors of war to acknowledge one another on the battlefield during Christmas, a journalist who spends the holiday covering a war story in Darfur, and a man who gives up his prized roses at a competition for the woman he loves.
Also included in THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS is the story of a woman who suffered an injury in an automobile accident and looks for divine intervention when she travels to Mother Teresa’s home in Calcutta, India.
About the Author
Robert Hunt was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He grew up in a time when many people barely survived on their income. When he wrote his trilogy of memoirs—Corner Boys, Townies, and Brazil Street—it was with the intention of showing readers what growing up in that era was like. It was also for the benefit of his grandchildren, who of course are growing up in a much different age.
Robert has two children, Stephen Hunt and Heather Johansen, who both live in Alberta, and he is blessed with seven beautiful grandchildren. He and his partner, Marion Penney, reside in St. John’s.
