More than anything, Dessa Dean needed a friend. A friend to love and confide in, a friend with whom she could share her heart. A friend who would delight in all the beauty and joy and fun of Christmas, only four days away.

Hope had just about run out, but then . . . there came a scratchin' at the door and Dessa Dean's life was forever changed.

      This book is filled with excitement and sadness, but don't worry! It's a wonderful book. I totally rate this five stars. My favorite part was when Dessa Dean tells about the past Christmases with her Mama. I recommend this book to anyone who likes stories with happy endings.
