American Christmas Stories Book II is a continuation of the compilations of Christmas Short Stories written by Dr. Douglas Courtney. Dr. Courtney has been writing Christmas short stories for twenty years to pass out to friends and families. Each story was written when memories were fresh and reflect upon the major events that were happening during the year they were written. The stories are messages of hope and the beauty of Christmas and the everyday people that shine at Christmas. These stories not only reflect American Christmases, but the men, women, and children that overcome many obstacles to move toward peace and goodwill to all. From the family facing homelessness to the young man remembering the need for character each has a small lesson to tell and hope to give. From the author, Enjoy, laugh and cry. Christmas can be wonderful for everyone.
