Tommy Carr was a kind man; Eve had been able to tell that after half an hour of knowing him. There had never been a day when he had not shown her some small kindness.

The birth of a daughter, Jeannie Eliza, crowns the young couple's happiness - just as her shockingly early death casts them low. But they do not need to talk about Jeannie because she remains with them, and their love does not change.

In some ways it is no wonder that one of them falls ill, for grief takes its toll, and one Christmas even Eve's sister Miriam is remarking that Tommy looks unwell. But what happens next is entirely unexpected, not least for the kind man.

    " This book is amazing! I cried like a cow all the way through! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Michele | 1/15/2014

    " Read in under 24 hours; a touching novella but in many ways too similar to In the Springtime of the Year, which still resonates with me some 20 years after first reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julie | 1/10/2014

    " This was a beautiful fable of a book - just right for reading over Christmas. It was a gentle book..a book about giving. "

    " Only 185 pages but I loved the simplicity of the writing that managed to convey so much. No words are wasted here but you can still immerse yourself in the story. "
