Milne's debut novel is the epitome of the true meaning of Christmas. It's an inspiring tale filled with heartfelt characters that will move readers to view Christmas in a whole new light.

Mo and Alan gave up believing in Santa Claus long ago, yet they agree to assist Dr. Ringle by playing elves at a hospital for children with cancer. There, they meet Madhu, a young boy awaiting a liver transplant. He doesn't celebrate Christmas and is curious about a holiday that celebrates Jesus but is represented by Santa Claus. Then there's Katrina, who's ashamed of her looks after treatment for a brain tumor. In helping "Santa," Mo and Alan discover the true meaning of Christmas. Can they pass the holiday spirit on to others? (CENTER STREET, Dec., 160 pp., $14.99)
