Publisher's Summary

From author of The Christmas Hope series, which has enthralled millions, comes a new inspirational novel about an unlikely friendship between two women, but one that will change each of their lives forever.
Gretchen Daniels has recently moved into an apartment with her two children to be closer to her mother, Miriam. She and her children are building a life together in a new community when a mysterious young woman, Melissa McCreary, moves into the apartment next to them. She has few possessions, little personality, and keeps to herself. One day, a local landlord who is looking for Melissa knocks on Gretchen’s door for assistance. Melissa’s mother has died and in the coming weeks the landlord needs Melissa to empty her mother’s apartment.
Gretchen reaches out and offers to help, but the apartment is a gut-wrenching shambles of a home. There is little worth saving, except for a few photos and a note that is discovered on the crate beside the bed. It is unfinished, but in the two scribbled lines, Melissa discovers she has a brother and a sister that she never knew about. Even more shocking, she begins to uncover family secrets that show her who she really is.
Can two very different women embark on a journey that explores a long-buried need for forgiveness, hope, and redemption?

Warm Christmas Story of Hope

Someone who reviewed this book said it was like a Hallmark movie, to which I say, so what? This is a great listen for the holidays, full of faith, joy, and hope. I love Donna VanLiere's books, because they always give us a glimpse into everyday flawed lives that are in need of grace and love . . . as are we all. If that is off putting, then her books are not for you. Her stories are wholesome, family friendly, funny, quirky, and faith affirming. In my estimation, that makes them priceless.

Like Watching a Hallmark Movie!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you enjoy light, fluffy stories with predictable endings, this is for you.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The author tries to imitate a British and a Southern accent, and both are bad. Sometimes they run together and become even worse. Authors shouldn't narrate their own books if the stories require voice acting skills.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It should become a movie on the Hallmark or Lifetime channels for the holidays.
