No matter where you go in the world, the joy of returning home for the holidays beckons like the brightest star on the darkest winter night. And if you’re from magical Prince Edward Island, you know that the north shores always call you home.

After a winter trip to Florida, one little family looks forward to making their way back to PEI in time to share Christmas Eve with their loved ones—but a nor’easter on the Atlantic has other plans in mind. With all flights cancelled to Canada’s wintry east coast, will Cindy and her daughter Zoe be able to reunite with Cindy’s husband Luke and his son Cam? And, if they do, will the family safely find their way home to PEI before the stockings are hung by the chimney with care?

Cover for Santa’s Angel: A Home to the Island Christmas Story artwork by Christina White, book design by Jordan Beaulieu.

A portion of the proceeds of the book will be donated to Santa’s Angels, a registered PEI charity that visits hundreds of homes across Prince Edward Island. With each home visit, Santa and the elves bring food, toys and gifts. To get involved, visit santasangels.ca.

These Prince Edward Island events will be taking place with the author, Marsha Doiron, in celebration of the book and to raise money for Santa’s Angels.
