Kevin Morrell is a forty-three-year-old husband and father who runs a successful design and marketing firm that’s crashed into the suffering economy. Attempting to navigate the busyness of the mall at Christmas, Kevin is humbled when he stumbles across the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Project. His wife insists he take a paper ornament.

The name on the ornament is Thomas Brandt, a fifteen-year-old still reeling from the implosion of his family from years of verbal abuse from an alcoholic father, and a mother who finally left him behind, only to find herself and her children penniless and struggling to survive. The only thing that has allowed Lynn to survive is her faith. Thomas shares that faith, but he also wonders why God has seemingly abandoned them.

    " I think the book was great. It was engaging. It has lots of short chapters. I had not been much of a reader since childhood but, I knew I just needed the right book. This was it. I read it with a friend of mine.I was busy at the time. She was busier. We will read the sequel if or when it comes out. We took turns sharing our impression. I'd recommended it to people who like books about people with a community spirit. "
