UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR
More Christmas Epiphanies

Editor: JJ Lee

In this new collection of true stories, discover more dashed holiday hopes, Christmas catastrophes, and slender, heartbreaking shards of joy.

Upon A Midnight Clear brings together emerging authors who share their experiences of Christmases gone wrong. 

  • an anonymous gift is the sole bright spot in a Christmas marked by poverty
  • a daughter gains a new appreciation for her mother in the retelling of a favourite family story
  • a Christmas vacation abroad prompts an unexpected evaluation of life choices made
  • under imminent threat, a mother comforts her children and herself
  • an adopted daughter navigates complex family dynamics over the holidays

These tales—sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always poignant—celebrate the spirit of the season and will warm your heart on even the coldest night.
