The ritual is the same every December: twelve handmade paper ornaments and a small plastic Christmas tree; twelve days for eighty-six-year-old Sarah Baldwin to remember her long-ago love; twelve chances for Sarah to sing her song once more, even just from her room in the lonely nursing home. Who will God bring to Sarah to share this tiny ritual of joy and His love?
Every year Sarah Lindeman celebrates Christmas the same way, placing one special ornament on her tiny tree on each of the twelve days of Christmas. It is her time to remember where she came from, who she is today, and how long ago a song gave her another chance at love.
But this year the ritual is different. This year a desperate young woman is listening, a nurse who cares for Sarah at the Greer Retirement Village. Sarah senses a familiar struggle in the woman's soul and shares the story of her song in hopes that it will help her find healing, as it did Sarah so long ago.

My mum leant me this book to read over Christmas, and although it's not something I'd normally read I found it enjoyable. This was a sweet, quick read and perfect for Christmas time. The story was very predictable and there was nothing terribly special about the writing, but if you're looking for an easy read to cheer you up and help you relax during the Christmas season then I'd recommend this book.
