Can one Christmas change a life forever?
Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls begging him to come home after his stepfather has an aneurysm, Rick is more than a little reluctant. What was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and dealing with the homeless guy who keeps hanging around the store. The one bright spot is the lovely and intriguing young woman who works at his side each day.
As Christmas nears, Rick's old life beckons, the hurts from his past loom large, and the decisions he makes will determine more than just where he spends Christmas Eve.
With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story that will have you remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.
Dan Walsh is the award-winning author of The Unfinished Gift, The Homecoming, The Deepest Waters, and Remembering Christmas. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his family in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.
Rick thought he was happy with his life. He had the dream job, his financial future was on a healthy track, and he had lots of friends. All of this changed when his stepfather became ill and his mother called him home to help in the family bookstore.
Rick might have been there physically, but initially he regretted and even resented the time he was wasting at the bookstore. But day by day, his defenses came down and past hurts were coming to the surface. He had to face more than he could have imagined, and the outcome surprises everyone, especially himself.
This is another fantastic holiday story that brings back memories of family, sharing and caring, and it's bound to become another holiday favourite.
