Publisher's Summary

Now a Hallmark original movie!

Nancy Naigle delivers a heartwarming Christmas story that proves you can always go home again in Hope at Christmas.  

Sydney Ragsdale is looking for a fresh start far away from her controlling ex-husband and the self-doubt that has plagued her since the divorce. Returning to her childhood home in Hopewell, North Carolina, is just what her soul needs. Praying some Christmas magic will follow her, she moves with her daughter to a farmhouse that once belonged to her grandparents. While there Sydney finds solace working at The Book Bea, her favorite bookstore.    

Single dad Kevin MacAlea, Mac to his friends, is the local high school history teacher and baseball coach. He is also the town's best kept secret - he has been playing Santa since his son was born 12 years ago. Mac loves the enchantment of the season and wants his son to share in his joy.   

When a catastrophe forces The Book Bea to close before the end of the year, everyone in the small town is feeling the loss. While Sydney is already off-balance by the bad news, her ex-husband breaks a promise to their daughter that sends her running away and threatens the relationship that she has begun with Mac.   

As Sydney and Mac try to figure out what their next steps are together they will soon discover that there’s always hope at Christmas.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED

I've seen the Hallmark movie but had to read the book as well. And although the movie was changed a bit, I still loved the book! The book had a lot more details like, Mac having a son and then included the accident Sydney's daughter was in and also Sydney's ex husband was included in book. So I can see how Hallmark couldn't possibly include all of this in the movie. But I really enjoyed both.

Totally related to this story, loved at the end Sydney gained the strength not to fall for her X’s shenanigans. Truly a happy ending. Narrator is so good really brings the story to life.
