On Christmas Eve, Sheriff Spencer Arrowood and Deputy Joe LeDonne find themselves on an unwelcome call to arrest an elderly man for a minor offense. As they attempt to do their duty, while doing the right thing for a neighbor, it begins to look like they may all spend Christmas away from home.
In a story of spirits, memories, and angels unaware, Sharyn McCrumb revisits her most loved characters who know there is more to this world than the eye can see, especially at Christmastime.
"Nora Bonesteel's Christmas Past is for me an instant classic, a Christmas tale of mysteries and miracles wrapped up in tradition, and destined to be read annually for years to come. It will delight old fans like me who have been reading Sharyn McCrumb's work for nearly three decades and will warm the hearts of those who pick up this slender volume in the spirit of the season."—Linda Hitchcock, Midwest Book Review
