Awakened by radio broadcasts urging the residents of a small Virginia town to take a snow day rather than travel to school and work, Peter Boyd finds himself with both an unexpected day off and an opportunity to find big truths in small moments and surprise encounters. Peter believes he has a good life, with a decent job and a family he loves. But he’s quietly worried he’ll be cut when downsizing takes effect at the factory, his family will lose the home they love, and his faith will crumble along with his bank account.
Through the course of one day, Peter finds himself revisiting his past through old friends, finding out there is a Santa Claus - though he drives a truck instead of a sleigh - and rediscovering that whatever comes in life, hope is the only choice that makes sense.
Debut novelist Billy Coffey offers a heartwarming and beautiful story about the faithful way God speaks, even when we won’t listen. Like Peter, you’ll reaffirm that faith is worth having and your worst fears are no match for an astounding, loving God.

"This is a gentle read and a sure bet with its even pacing, descriptive language, and humor. Look for more by this talented author in the future." (Library Journal)
Enjoyed this book alot. The narrator has a voice perfect for this story - soothing, but also exciting. Every chapter had a theme along with a lesson. Well thought out and written. The story is based on one day in a mans life, which would in real life been a very long day. The main character dealt with daily activities but brought out fine points that most of us just over look everyday. Look forward to reading / listening to more books by this author.
