Author and director Michael Landon, Jr., and Cindy Kelley - screenwriters behind the popular Love Comes Softly films - deliver a heartwarming Depression-era tale of a devoted mother and her disabled son.

The 1930s were a decade of enormous uncertainty - for the world, for America, and in particular for one lonely, struggling mother and her disabled son. Their story is one of love and enormous sacrifices in the face of circumstances horrendous beyond belief. When her husband leaves her for someone whose time isn't wrapped up in a silent, handicapped kid, Mary and little Jack are out on their own in a world that has no room for the poor and disabled. Especially not at a time when most Americans are simply trying to survive their economic woes and job losses. But then arrives The Gift...where has it come from, and why? How can a young boy who can neither hear nor speak provide comfort, direction, and sometimes challenges to seekers who learn of the special ability? Whatever the source, its presence brings a single shaft of light and hope to Mary and her beloved Jack. Will it be enough?

    " I have to admit I really enjoyed this book even though I did cry during parts of it. The story centers around Jack who is deaf and mute and has a gift of predicting the future by writing down bible verse numbers that would lead to a passage applicable to someone's situation. Just when you think it couldn't get worse for Jack and his mother, the situation turns dire and you wonder how this family can make it. Mary, Jack's mother, finds strength to continue. All in all, this is a very heartwarming tale. I will definitely look for more of this author's work. I received this book from the publisher. "

    " In the beginning Mary is living with her husband and their son Jack during the Great Depression. Jack does not communicate with others which his mother embraces as being who Jack is and his father holds against them both. One night Mary learns that her husband is planning on leaving them both (with all of their money and overdue bills) so Mary takes Jack and (literally) runs. She learns during this time that Jack can communicate (and see the future) through the word of God. Mary is not certain what to do with her knowledge of his gift and the family goes through many highs and lows always with the best intentions. It was a heartwarming story that at many moments reminded me of the screenwriting of Michael Landon Sr. "
