On a blustery afternoon, Kylie Gray wanders into an antique shop and buys an enchanting snow globe. “There’s a story behind that snow globe,” the antique dealer tells her. The original owner, he explains, was a German toymaker who lost his wife and son right before Christmas. When the grieving widower received the handcrafted snow globe as a Christmas gift, he saw the image of a beautiful woman beneath the glass—a woman who would come into his life, mend his broken heart and bring him back to the world of the living. For years, the snow globe has passed from generation to generation, somehow always landing in the hands of a person in special need of a Christmas miracle.
Kiley could use a miracle herself. This year, all she wants for Christmas is someone to love. A hopeful shake leads her on an adventure that makes a believer out of her. When Kylie shares the story of the snow globe with her best friends—two women with problems of their own—they don’t believe it. But they’re about to discover that at Christmastime, sometimes the impossible becomes possible and miracles really do come true.
I have let nearly a month go by between finishing this book and getting around to the review. Not a good plan. It's possible the salient details escape me.* Here's what I do remember:
The snow globe that Kylie discovers in an antique store gives the holder a peek into their future. Kylie and her two friends follow the magic scenes they view to each discover their own Christmas miracle. It's a sweet story - just right for the season. I recommend it for fellow lovers of Christmas stories.
*That line was a West Wing quote. Can any loyal fans out there tell me who said it?
