It is just two weeks before Christmas, and 16-year-old Leah Lewis-Hall is stuck in a hospital room. Leah is lonely and worried, but she doesn’t want to trouble her honeymooning mother. When her new roommate Rebekah needs a friend, Leah forgets her own problems as she comforts the scared little Amish girl. Leah doesn’t understand the Amish customs and beliefs, but she still looks forward to Rebekah’s teenaged sister and brother’s visits. Romantic sparks fly between Leah and brother Ethan. Then a mysterious “night nurse” whom only Leah and Rebekah can see appears to console the girls. Leah will need the support of all her friends when the doctor finally makes his diagnosis. Lurlene McDaniel’s best-selling inspirational novels about teenagers facing life-altering situations captivate her many young adult fans. With narrator Kate Forbes highlighting the poignancy and romance of Leah’s story, the result is a truly memorable and uplifting listening experience.
