John was lifes smile, but now he was gone
Swept away as a bride from the South Carolina coast, Kathryn Sullivan creates a fairy-tale life with her husband in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Her picture-perfect world is shattered, and life rendered meaningless, when John loses his battle against pancreatic cancer. Grief stricken, Kathryn withdraws from the Christmas traditions that she once held dear until a precocious and hysterical neighbor, seven-year-old Abigail, prods her to drag the Christmas decorations from storage. A silver charm bracelet, resurfacing among the boxes, prepares Kathryns broken heart to receive a life-changing miracle.
