Although it takes place at Christmastime, Hope Can Make It Happen is not necessarily a Christmas story. It is loosely based on a real-life incident that happened almost 100 years ago. It is an uplifting tale about three people father, Jake; mother, Rose; and their six-year-old daughter, Hope who, while facing adversity, find that special something deep inside each of us that says no to defeat.
Hope Can Make It Happen is an inspiring parable for readers, young and old telling us that a family, whose love for each other is strong enough and true enough, can survive even in the worst of times.
And it is the story of a little girl whose determination to have a happy Christmas morning brings results that surprise even her. What Hope sees on Christmas morning, her parents see. They are sharing the magic that can happen when we see with our hearts.
