Writer of the phenomenally successful Left Behind series, Jerry Jenkins has now given us a heartwarming book about the meaning of Christmas. Noella, a journalism professor at Northwestern University, and Tom, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, are engaged to be married. After several failed relationships, they believe they have finally found true love. As Christmas approaches, though, they come up against a basic difference in their temperaments. When Noella insists that a medallion she received as a child was actually from Santa Claus, Tom bah-hum-bugs it, and, sadly, they realize they are just too dissimilar to get married. However, while in Germany on assignment to write about the Father of Christmas, Tom makes a discovery that restores his faith in much more than Santa.'Twas the Night Before is a spellbinding love story that will join O. Henry's "Gift of the Magi," Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and Frank Capra's film It's a Wonderful Life as a Christmas classic that will bring romance, good cheer, and hope to the season.
