But when Dane McConnell, the facility's director, calls telling her he has something of her mother's she must see, she can't refuse her childhood sweetheart. Now she's back on the road, unprepared for the journey of heartache, grace, and romance ahead. 256 pages, hardcover from Waterbrook.
Krista Mueller admitted her mother to the care facility run by Dane McConnell–Krista’s friend and former love–knowing that Dane could take better care of Charlotte than Krista ever could. Besides, Krista has long since stopped actively caring about the woman who has hurt her so deeply through the years. Her intention is never to see her mother again. Then Dane informs Krista that he has found something of her mother’s that Krista simply must see.
Unable to refuse the man who still means so much to her, Krista sets out for Taos–thoroughly unprepared for the dramatic journey of discovery that leads to a deeper understanding of the mother who emotionally abandoned her and brings back to the lost love of her youth.
A story of joy and loss, connection and forgiveness, Christmas Every Morning presents each day as a gift to be opened and every loved one as a treasure to be rediscovered.
