Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 5 and up. Like Paterson's Angels and Other Strangers (1979), this collection of stories reveals the spirit of Christmas in contemporary life. A few are sentimental with contrived parallels and saintly characters; a few may be too adult in viewpoint to appeal to young readers. But the best of the stories reveal hope and light in a dark, uncertain world. Paterson writes with simple immediacy about outcasts: strangers on the street and at your door, runaways, failures, and illegal immigrants--people who can find no room at the inn. The endings offer no easy resolution, only an opening out of possibilities. One exquisite story about a teenage runaway in the empty night celebrates the song of "stubborn sweetness" that persists despite our turning away from it again and again. Hazel Rochman

Turn down the volume to Bing Crosby's "White Christmas " C.D.! Gather the family 'round the Christmas tree! Katherine Patterson has done it again. Patterson shows her versatile writing style in her collection of short stories, A Midnight Clear: Stories for the Christmas Season. From a pregnant woman in Marion, Virginia, to a political prisoner in Red China, these stories radiate the true spirit of the Christmas season. Enjoy this work of Katherine Patterson as you roast your chesnuts over the open fire!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The copy of "A Midnight Clear" was as described when I ordered it. The delivery was very prompt. I got what I ordered and what I paid for. I will try to find a hardcover edition later, perhaps from the same seller since I was pleased with their service.
All in all, I am quite satisfied with my purchase.
