The Best Gift is a compilation of two short stories: ‘First Christmas’ and ‘A Christmas Wish’. It is a heart-warming tale of forgiveness, love and togetherness; stories about starting afresh, making amends and being with those you love during the holidays.
First Christmas: Emma and Robert were still newlyweds, having been married seven months prior in May in a beautiful spring wedding. Emma was especially happy about all the first things they could do as a newlywed couple – first Halloween, first Thanksgiving and best of all, their first Christmas in their home in Chicago. However a week before Christmas, Robert was sent to New York City for work. All Emma wanted for Christmas was for Robert to be home and it looked like it wasn’t going to happen. Robert was disappointed too – he wanted to spend their first Christmas together and never anticipated being stuck in an airport on such an important Christmas.
A Christmas Wish: After fifteen years in the advertising business, Julie Francis was still feeling the pinch of deadlines created by the holiday season. In spite of this, she had an eventful Christmas Eve in New York City before helping her husband Mark decorate the Christmas tree. For the first time in years everything seemed to come together to create the perfect holiday that Julie had been wishing for and this made her and Mark really happy.
