"The Christmas Hope, a novel about a little girl needing a home, a couple who takes her in, and a doctor who fulfills a last Christmas wish, is poised to become a seasonal favorite in its own right. Patricia and Mark Addison have long given up the hope of having a meaningful Christmas. But this year, Patricia's job as a social worker will lead her to a very special five-year-old. Against her better judgment, Patricia bends the rules and takes the little girl to her own home. Through Emily's presence in their house, and her penetrating questions about heaven, the Addisons will learn that there is no sorrow so great that faith cannot help you find your way through. And Christmas will once more be a time of joy in their home. The Christmas Hope is a story of love in the face of loss, joy when all seems hopeless, and light that can shine into the darkest places."
