Overview
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 in his hand. Will he be able to see what and who is most important? And will Angela give the miracle of love a chance?

Angela Donovan, the heroine of Passey’s innocuous debut contemporary, is a single mother, down on her luck but anxious to make Christmas memorable for her eight-year-old daughter, Caroline. When Angela and her daughter visit a local Christmas tree farm, they meet the elderly owner, who promises that each of his trees comes with a miracle; this delights Caroline but annoys her skeptical mother. Angela is mortified when someone pays for her tree and suspects Mark Shafer, the heir to the tree farm. But Mark has problems of his own: he is interested in a music career, and he and his lovely girlfriend do not want the burden of inheriting the farm, but negotiating with a developer distresses his family and makes him feel guilty. When things get worse for both Angela and Mark, their unexpected friendship helps them find their faith and weather some challenging times. Readers can do better in the annual pilgrimage for holiday stories: the family tree farm provides a piquant setting, but the main characters come across as self-centered and one dimensional, and even a Christmas miracle doesn’t render them very appealing.
