The Season of Second Chances

From bestselling, acclaimed authors Kristina McMorris and T. Greenwood come two heartfelt, poignant stories filled cherished memories, holiday magic, and the gift of new beginnings.

Jenna Matthews has made a career of decluttering other people's lives. After a childhood marked by her mother's hoarding, it feels satisfying to sort and evaluate possessions. Some items, however, defy simple categories—like the shoebox of WWII memorabilia she finds in an elderly client's home. Nestled alongside a Bronze Star is a photograph of a blushing army nurse and an adoring young serviceman. Estelle Porter, the box's owner, becomes curiously tightlipped at Jenna's discovery. Even Estelle's grandson, Reece, knows nothing about this secret in her past. But as Jenna delves deeper, she pieces together Estelle's heartrending story—one that paves new, unexpected paths for many.

Fans of Letters from Home will enjoy some familiar characters in this freshly updated and repackaged novella! The original version was first published in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling anthology A Winter Wonderland.

"A heartwarming story...[The Christmas Collector] will remind readers of the movie Letters to Juliet—a romantic tale of long-lost love."

Different as they may be, both women understand the nature of ambition and self-doubt, joy, and regret.
