Remember Clarence, Jimmy Stewart's Christmas angel who made miracles happen in "It's A Wonderful Life"? It's no accident that this movie is an immortal classic; Christmas and miracles go together like holly and eggnog and speak to the flame of hope that lives in all of us--even the most jaded grinch.

Mary Ellen has tapped into that reservoir of possibility and created a magical, mystical gift for the holiday season. While some stories are the requisite hankie soakers, others are delightful and funny, and still others defy all logic and dare you to believe.

The holiday season always seems touched by the miraculous, but as we get busy with ordinary life, it's easy to lose touch with that sense of wonder. A Christmas Filled with Miracles helps readers connect with a sense of hopefulness. You'll meet a woman whose heart melts when an abused young girl is placed in her arms at the homeless shelter on Christmas Eve. Her name? Angel. "Somehow," she writes, "God had placed an Angel in my arms to guide me into my heart, to help me understand more about myself, and to teach me how very blessed I really am. Then there's the man who was laid off from his job a few weeks before Christmas. He knew there would be no money to buy gifts. In this time of need, an anonymous person came to his door and unconditionally handed him an envelope filled with money.

This collection of amazingly true stories will touch readers hearts, awaken memories of the magic of Christmas past, and offer hope for the Christmases to come.
