New York Times bestseller


The woman in the picture was so young she looked like a child. Her hair was loose, eyes wide, blue T-shirt stark against the pale lines of arching collarbones. I felt the air leave me in a quiet rush. Not because of the way the photo captured her fleeting youth, but because of the way it highlighted the bruise.

  Rachel Price has just one happy memory from her childhood: the moment her father took her hands while playing outside on a cold, snowy day and called her his angel. It was a rare and sacred moment in her young life, one in which she finally felt safe, loved, and protected. But it didn’t last long. Years later, Rachel’s daughter is the only light in what has become a dark life. Rachel repeats the patterns she learned as a child and exposes her own daughter to those same destructive behaviors. Consumed by an abusive marriage, but secure in the safety of the familiar, she is too afraid to escape.

   Rachel accepts what her life has become, even as she makes excuses for those who keep her in a constant state of despair and regret. But then, an unexpected phone call from an old friend changes everything. Her ordered world is turned upside down as she’s set on a journey that might be her last chance to salvage the life she’d given up on long ago. Rachel realizes that everything she once believed may be nothing but lies and misunderstandings. As the snow falls and the promise of Christmas redemption nears, Rachel begins to see her entire childhood in a brand-new light and must now decide what her future holds—and what her past really means. Will the truth set her free, or condemn her to a life full of regret and “what ifs”?

    " A book that brought tears to my eyes. Glenn Beck did a wonderful job writing a heart-warming book! It is a book that can teach students to appreciate what they have. I feel like many students will make text-to-self connections while reading this book. It could also teach students to do something nice for the people they love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 2/12/2014

    " I read this book in one sitting, it is an uplifting story about how to stop to cycle of abuse. Having been in an abusive relationship I can relate to hearing that your ugly, worthless and never good enough. It's wonderful to see Rachel realize that these things are not true and it's helpful to see those realizations in my own life. Definitely a book that everyone should read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda Carter | 2/10/2014

    " VERY GOOD. Very pertinent for me - spousal abuse, fear, trying to hide it from the children, from the neighbors... Very real and encouraging to see someone validate the feelings... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly Morey | 1/19/2014

    " This book is a fairly good book, but I found it unbelievable that a mother would share all her problems with an 11 year old daughter. I did like the part about how the daughter's recollections were different and eplained but her father at the end of the book "

    " Reading my Christmas feel-good book! I like to read one every year this time of year....It was a cute, feel good and semi cheezy book like most Christmas stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vern Wolfley | 11/29/2013

    " This was a great book for the season. Not nessisarily a Christmas story, but it reminded me of what the season is all about. This book reminded me that my kids will remember the special moments that we spend together, not the stuff they get. A good lesson for the Christmas season! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia | 3/19/2013

    " I thought it was a good loving book from people that were truly friends. Bad that some people have to feel so unloved and unnecessary for so many years until they gain control of their lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoAnne | 8/12/2012

    " Another tear jerker by Glenn Beck but of course it comes with a message. A well written story that has abuse as it's theme and how families connect and deal with it especially when it continues a cycle. A quick read, I would recommend it along with Beck's other book, The Christmas Sweater. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs. Koch | 2/2/2012

    " I usually read a maudlin, no-brainer Christmas story every year, so this was it. Yet there are actually stronger storylines about tolerating and escaping from abuse, forgiveness, and even dealing with Alzheimer's. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Whitney Peck | 1/31/2012

    " It's bad enough to have this man's nonsense poisoning the world, but it is another to incorporate his political agenda into a children's picture book. Disappointing to say the least, but somehow expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/19/2012

    " A story of growth, love, family and finding the strength to make things right. "

    " I liked this book but I felt that it was somewhat unrealistic. Unfortunately, I have worked with a large number of abused woman and they never seem to get out of the relationship this easy. "
