Overview


This Christmas, Hope Jensen has a goal to place 1,001 jars of spare change with families in need. Her Christmas Jars ministry—headquartered in the famous Chuck's Chicken 'n' Biscuits diner—is the same place Hope was discovered as a newborn and the same place she was reunited with her birthmother.

Helping her reach her goal is an assortment of helpful friends and family, including Clark Maxwell. Romance has never been Hope's strong suit, but there is something special about Clark, and perhaps this is the year that Hope's Christmas wish for love will finally come true.

Al Allred, a vistor to Chuck's, also volunteers to help Hope reach her lofty goal. But will his focus simply blind Hope to the truth she needs to see? And then there is Queen, a very special little girl with one very special request this Christmas.

As the big day draws nearer, Hope learns the most important lesson of the Christmas Jar. A lesson that will change her life forever.

Read an Excerpt


Hope watched as the first wave of people finished lunch and began stopping by the tables to pick up their Christmas Jars. A few spotted Hope at her table, caught her eye, and proudly raised their jars for her to see. She blew them a kiss and waved good- bye.

She knew that everyone would find a rolled- up note, tied with green yarn, inside the jar which explained its purpose:

Thank you for honoring Chuck’s wish and taking a Christmas Jar with you. The tradition may already be a familiar one, and if it is and you already have a jar at home, we thank you again and invite you to give this jar to someone who is not yet part of the magic. If this is your introduction to the tradition, we ask you to place this jar on your counter at home, or anywhere it can easily be seen and reached. Each day drop your spare change, coins only, into the jar. On or around Christmas Eve, give the jar away anonymously to someone in need. The need is yours to judge and the decision of who receives the jar is yours and yours alone to make. As soon as possible after Christmas, place a new jar on the counter and begin filling it for next year. The miracle begins with you!

    The spirit of hope

    I started giving a book to friends and family for Christmas a few years ago. I really LOVED "Christmas Jars" .
    The next year I bought "Christmas Jars Reunion " and we loved it
    as much as the first one. You won't be disappointed even for teenagers
    this writer inspires and leaves you with the spirit of hope.

    This book was incredible!!

    I'll admit I had a difficult time getting into the book but as the story went on, I couldn't put it down. The ending was so touching, I was sad when it ended. I'm ready for the next book.

    Good Sequel

    I had read the first one last Christmas and incorporated the theme by giving jars to my family. We saved money all year and collectively were able to give to the Heifer project this season. It was nice to run across the sequel unexpectedly and to carry on the tradition in one form or another. Inspiring.

    Magic Continues

    The Christmas Jar magic that began in Christmas Jars continues a couple years later in Christmas Jars Reunion. Everyone who has Christmas Jars in their library will want to add Christmas Jars Reunion. This very special holiday tale reminds us of the impact a small jar of change can have on a person's life. Although the main character decides to collect 1,001 full jars to hand out at Christmas she comes to realize by the end of the story that what really matters is the ONE jar that she will fill, the ONE jar that she will give, the ONE family that will be changed forever by her ONE jar. This will surely become a holiday favorite that you will reread every Christmas!

    Poignant Sequel

    If you haven't read Christmas Jars, the New York Times bestselling book by Jason F. Wright, you've missed out on a classic Christmas story that will change how you view the season of giving. Its sequel, aptly titled Christmas Jars Reunion is reminiscent of the first.

    Across the country, a phenomenon has begun to unfold. Since the release of Christmas Jars, hundreds of readers have contacted author Jason Wright and shared their Christmas Jar stories, and thousands of Christmas Jars have been given away across the country. Individuals and families are setting out an empty Mason jar to be filled with spare change throughout the year. Then anonymously, the family gives away the jar around Christmas time to a person in need.

    In Christmas Jars Reunion, the story that began in Christmas Jars continues. Yet, this story stands on its own, bringing the reader once again into Hope's Jensen's remarkable life. The author includes a quote from a Christmas Jar recipient at the beginning of each chapter. One reads, "I've often wondered how a person repays kindness. I know now . . . with a Christmas Jar. As if a year full of blessings wasn't already enough, God blessed me again tonight. And tomorrow? A new jar begins. -Patricia" (CJR, 60).

    But even Hope Jensen needs to learn what the spirit of selfless giving is truly about. When Clark Maxwell re-enters her life, she must decide if she can allow him into her heart once again, and discover that loving someone might just be worth the risk.

    Hope sets the lofty goal of distributing 1,001 Christmas Jars in honor of Chuck, deceased owner of Chuck's diner. But in the process, the importance of the original Christmas Jar is lost.

    It will take a stranger, a young girl, and an interview of a lifetime to bring back the true meaning that the Christmas Jar was intended for. Christmas Jars Reunion is a story that will inspire you to look closer at your life and remind you of the significance of selfless giving.

    Great companion story to the Christmas Jar.

    If you enjoyed the first Christmas Jar book, you'll want to read the Reunion story. This book reveals how those who have been gifted with a Christmas jar expand and perpetuate the anonymous holiday tradition.
