Karen Kingsbury, author of 24 books, has warmed the hearts of millions with her tales of miracles. Gideon's Gift captures a Christmas miracle that touches a frail young girl and a gruff homeless man.

Eight-year-old Gideon Mercer loves to help people, but she has leukemia. When her illness goes into remission at Christmas, she is sure this miracle is a gift from God. So to celebrate, she and her father volunteer to serve meals at a mission for the homeless. She meets dirty, sullen Earl Badgett there, and although he refuses her friendship, she gives him a small gift.
