Publisher Comments:

In this modern-day fairy tale, New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah gives us a very special gift: the heartwarming story of a woman at a crossroads, caught between two lives, who finds a second chance at happiness.

Joy Candellaro used to love Christmas more than any other time of the year. Now, as the holiday approaches, she finds herself at loose ends. Recently divorced and estranged from her sister, she can’t summon the old enthusiasm for celebrating. So without telling anyone, she buys a ticket and boards a plane bound for the rural Northwest.

Yet Joy’s best-laid plans go terribly awry. The plane crashes deep in the darkness of a forest. Miraculously, Joy and her fellow passengers walk away from the wreckage as the plane explodes. There, amid the towering trees, Joy makes a bold and desperate decision to leave her ordinary life behind and embark on an adventure . . . just for the holidays.

Daniel O’Shea has returned to the small town of Rain Valley, following the death of his ex-wife. Now he is a single father facing his son’s first Christmas without a mother. Six-year-old Bobby isn’t making it easy–the boy has closed himself off from the world, surrounding himself with imaginary friends.

When Joy and Bobby meet, they form an instant bond. Thrown together by fate, these wounded souls will be touched by the true spirit of Christmas and remember what it means to be a family.

Then a dramatic turn of events shows Joy the price of starting over. On a magical Christmas Eve she will come face-to-face with a startling truth. Now she must decide: In a time of impossible dreams and unexpected chances, can she find the faith to reach for the love she has found . . . and the new life only she believes in?

Kristin Hannah is one of the greatest writers out there if you like to read stories that really tug at your heart. This book did just that for me. It is a well-constructed novel with huge surprises that I honestly did not see coming at all.

It's the story of a woman who is going through a mid-life crisis, so to speak. She's newly divorced and has been deeply hurt by her ex-husband and her sister. She spontaneously decides to go an adventure after finding out some devastating news and ends up being used to bring a boy and his father back together after their recent emotional fall-out.

If you love Kristin Hannah's books, but haven't read this one, I know you will love it! If you have never read her books, this one may get you hooked on her as a new favorite author. I highly recommend it for anyone in need of hope right now.
