Publisher's Summary

In a heartwarming novel of secret wishes and family lost and found, acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels creates a timeless Christmas story to cherish...

The flames of memory always seem to glow a little brighter during the holidays. Perhaps that's why this time of year is so difficult for airline heiress Ivy Macintosh, as she faces thoughts of yet another festive season alone. Since the plane crash that claimed the lives of her husband and two children eight years ago, she's been submerged in grief.

When eleven-year-old Holly Greenwood knocks on her door, lost and frightened after a forbidden visit to her singing teacher, Ivy's self-imposed exile is shattered. Holly has an extraordinary voice, and wants nothing more than to perform in an upcoming Christmas musical. Holly's father, Daniel, doesn't allow music in their home, refusing to give a good reason why - just as he refuses to talk about Holly's mother. Ivy has no idea how closely she and Daniel are linked by their tragic pasts, yet she's drawn to the warmth she senses beneath his gruff exterior. And as Christmas nears, their shared concern for Holly begins to draw Ivy back into the world again... and toward a family who may need her just as much as she needs them...

Great Twisted Tale

Loved this story. At first it was twisted up when each chapter switched between Holly and Ivy. But when they got together after Holly got lost the story just moved along quite nicely. I enjoyed this story as well as I have many of the other books I have listened to by Ms. Michaels. The narrator was very good.

Heart Warming

After a loss of my own in 2019 I wasn't sure that I could handle this book. I'll never have a Holly but it made me feel great reading this book. As always you are an excellent writer.

Narrator 😖

Narrator is making it impossible for me to listen. Was only able to get to chapter three, and that was by shear force.

contraction lacktion

it was annoying to not have one contracting word. seems like a 14 year old wrote it. she repeats herself constantly and really the story is only 2 chapters long with constant repetition. really disappointed
