Abbey senses something special about the little man tending to the reindeer who, along with a century-old farmhouse, a barn full of animals, and fields abounding in woods and pasture, was a gift to Abbey from a stranger. Abbey and her husband, Steve, move in just before the holidays. They have been together since the '60s, eloping when Steve returned from Vietnam. Now with Abbey's cancer in remission, they're looking forward to their boys coming home for Christmas.
Turns out this Christmas proves to be more magical than anticipated as Abbey realizes an understanding never thought possible through the rekindling of a belief rooted in childhood. Of course it's who delivers this gift on Christmas Eve that gives Abbey and Steve the strength to face their greatest challenge.
My 2 cents:
If this book doesn't make you a believer again about christmas nothing will. This was such a heart warming story and I did not put it down till I was done. Abbey and her family experience love, loss, acceptance that leaves you with such a warm feeling. It takes you back to your own memories of past Christmases. This is a great book for the holiday's. You will believe once again.
