Publisher's Summary

A fourteenth wedding anniversary is nothing to sneeze at, Elliott Banner knows, but it's not exactly a landmark year, like fifteen or twenty, when he'll take his wife, Laura, to Paris. But when a headache on the drive home from their anniversary date, two days before Christmas, turns out to be more than a migraine, he wishes he had celebrated every year as though it were their last.

In this poignant, touching, uplifting story, a woman calmly gathers her family around her during the Christmas holiday, to celebrate their lives together, both past and future, and to truly count their blessings. A family history unfolds in a single night in this deeply affecting story that speaks volumes about love, trust and letting go. It's a perfect holiday read that underscores the true meaning of the season.

Christmas Presend

Beware!!! This cannot be burned. This really burns me up. I purchased it and went to burn the CDs. Then a pop-up said the license agreement does not allow for burning.
