Inherent in every Mother’s Gift is her own bid for immortality.
It’s Christmas Time, and widower Daniel Holquist is struggling to raise his fourteen-year-old daughter Kennedy by himself. He’s peered across the barren dreamscape of loneliness, and found another soul seeking the fulfillment inherent in commitment. Kara Mello has taken over production of the Christmas Pageant at Daniel’s church. She’s found her way to Daniel’s heart, but found a fourteen-year-old sentry jealously guarding it.
Kennedy has enshrined her mother’s memory. To make matters worse, she can’t find the “Forget Me Not” broach they shared—a talisman she coveted as the symbol of their time together. Angry and forlorn, Kennedy makes life miserable for Daniel. Even worse, she makes his relationship with Kara impossible.
But at their darkest hour, Kennedy finds the broach in an unlikely place—sitting on her bed in crumpled up wrapping paper. At first, she blames Kara’s five-year-old daughter Hope. But she soon learns the truth¬—her mother had carefully planned its rediscovery, along with a note explaining her hopes and dreams for Kennedy’s future, as well as Daniel’s.
It’s up to Kennedy to right some very head-strong wrongs she committed. Luckily, her mother’s gift to her was far more than a broach.
