Though Angela Donovan is out of work and needs money for rent, she yearns for her eight-year-old daughter to have a carefree holiday. The last thing she wants is the pressure of her daughter expecting a miracle. But when they pick out a Christmas tree at a cozy Massachusetts tree farm that’s exactly what happens when they learn the trees might be miracle trees.
Mark Shafer is soon to be the new keeper of the Christmas trees when he inherits the family farm. He’d like to run it with a family of his own, but his girlfriend wants nothing to do with farm life. He makes plans to sell so he can propose to his girlfriend and pursue a career in music. Then he meets an unforgettable customer and her daughter, and an anonymous gift compels them to learn the truth about the trees.
With a buyer willing to pay top dollar for the land, Mark has the fate of the trees is in his hand. Will he be able to see what and who is most important? And will Angela the give the miracle of love a chance?
From Chapter Two:
“How about you come to a late dinner with us?” Mark asked tentatively.
“Of course not,” he said. “Leave me be. The land is quiet tonight. The wind is blowing in from the north. The trees know there’s a change coming.”
“The trees know it, Mark. I don’t yet. But there’s something.”
Mark kept his eyes from rolling. The trees this and the land that. He couldn’t reason with Papa anymore. When he talked about the trees that way, Mark wished his parents were still alive. Maybe they’d understand him better, or maybe his dad would be able to explain the trees to him in a way that was at least rational. But that wasn’t possible.
