From the creator/director of the Love Comes Softly film series--
A story both bittersweet and heartwarming of a mother and her son...and of his unusual gift.

But then The Gift appears...where has it come from, and why? How can a young boy who cannot communicate provide comfort and direction to seekers who learn of the special ability? Whatever the source, its presence brings a single shaft of light and hope to Mary and her beloved son, Jack....Will it be enough?
A novel filled with passion, with yearning...and with hope.
