One More Gift to Give

by John Shaughnessy ’77 (St. Catherine of Siena Press)

In this book, eight people—a newborn child, young married couple, nurse, cab driver, detective, young boy and man dressed as Santa Claus—are brought together by unusual circumstances on a cold Christmas morning.

“With tightly crafted storytelling, John Shaughnessy weaves a classic tale . . . of one unforgettable Christmas Day. Together [his characters] learn that ordinary acts of kindness can bring about extraordinary gifts and that those in need gain most when they give what they have. One More Gift to Give is a warm and welcome antidote for those who ponder Christmas Lost,” writes Kerry Temple, editor of Notre Dame Magazine.
