The Winter House includes a delightful mix of fiction and memories about Christmas in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland. These 20 stories showcase Christmas scenes past and present, real and imagined—a revelry with a gang of rowdy mummers; childhood memories of school Christmas concerts; the tale of New Brunswick's very first Santa Claus; and many more.
Selected fiction and non-fiction includes stories by David Adams Richards, Ernest Buckler, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Gary L. Saunders, and many others, with a foreword by Bruce Nunn. The Winter House will bring yuletide cheer in the best Atlantic Canadian tradition.
