Santa’s Angel: A Home to the Island Christmas Story

By Marsha Doiron & illustrated by Christina White

Santa’s Angel: A Home to the Island Christmas Story by Marsha Doiron and illustrated by Christina White was released on November 28 by Charlottetown’s Pownal Street Press.

The heartwarming true story is about the powerful bond of family, the kindness of strangers, the enduring magic of the season—and how taking a leap of faith and trusting in the unknown can lead to delightful outcomes. 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?

In celebration of the book and to raise money for Santa’s Angels (a registered PEI charity), Doiron will be at Founders’ Food Hall & Market in Charlottetown on December 2 at 3 pm, PEI Preserve Company on December 7 at 6:15 pm (part of the New Glasgow Tree Lighting), and Island Hill Farm on December 9 from 1–2:30 pm (bring a toy donation and get free admission).
