    A great book with a great message intertwined with action & suspense. Truly enjoyed the storyline as well as the memories brought to mind of my own "Uncle Buddy". This book is a must have that will stand the test of time.

    A Christmas story with PUNCH

    Wrapped in a suffocating cocoon of depression, Teddy Whitaker finds even his desperate suicide attempt unsuccessful. Determined to escape his problems, risks life and limb yet again to board a moving freight train, only to find his chosen boxcar already occupied…by a mysterious child who presents him with life-or-death lessons he must learn before Christmas morning. Teddy sets out to save his life, and perhaps his soul. But of course, with the stakes that high, another entity is ready to prevent the success of Teddy’s mission…

    Chasing Christmas is not your everyday Christmas tale. This gripping novella contains hints of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol…a touch of The Shack by William Young…and even a vague Stephen King-ish flavor. Yet Hunt’s writing is not an echo of any of these strong influences. This author deserves high accolades for presenting a couple of difficult subjects and a gripping storyline in a voice distinctly his own.

    Chasing Christmas provides powerful food for thought – and a new awareness of one’s everyday blessings. Don’t be afraid to tuck this one into every stocking on your Christmas list. It’s that kind of special.
