Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Molly Allen and Ryan Kelly were an unlikely pair, she coming from a very rich family and Ryan the son of a school teacher.  A California girl, with money, and a simple guitar player from Carthage Mississippi.  They seemed so different, but connected in a deep way, that made them each believe that maybe they would be able to get past the expectations others had for their lives.  But is was not to be, or was it? 
Years pass by, each believing the other has compromised their dreams, but a tragic accident will find Molly and Ryan back in Franklin Tennessee trying to stir up support for Donna and Charlie Barton.  Trying to gather books to re-open the book store where they had spent many hours together, but also praying for a miracle for Charlie to wake from his accident, that had nearly claimed his life.  Will being together bring their feelings for each other into the open. 
A wonderful little book, set during the holidays, restoring faith in people.  Making you believe that there are still good people who are willing to help others.  I enjoyed this book very much.  While it was not as deep as some of Ms. Kingsbury's other books I have read it was still a wonderful story.  An easy afternoon read, that will leave you believing in miracles and the best of people.  228 pages US $19.99 4 stars
