Fans of touching small town holiday romances like those of Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs, Susan Mallory, and Robyn Carr are going to relish this novel!
A deeply moving, emotional story of a mother’s anguish, a father’s love, a family’s hope, this novel will renew your faith and restore your belief in miracles.
Veterinarian and single mom Emily Hawkins’ world is turned upside down when her precious little girl is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Only a bone marrow transplant can save 3-year-old Matilda Louise. Emily isn’t a match, but she’s determined to find someone who is, and that means tracking down Tilda’s biological father and his filthy rich family, a family she believes would’ve preferred her little girl had never been born.
But when she arrives in Big Falls, Oklahoma, nothing is the way she expected. Joey McIntyre, the billionaire’s son who’d been her sweet teenage summer fling, is as handsome and smooth as ever, but he seems to fall hard for Tilda-Lou at first sight, and he’s furious that Emily has kept his child from him. Which makes no sense at all. Soon Emily begins to suspect that the version history she’s believed all these years, might not be the real one. And if that’s true, she’s done a terrible, unforgivable thing.
But none of that matters as dire symptoms set in. The doctor advises Emily and Joe to give their girl the best Christmas ever. Fortunately, Christmas is what the Brand-McIntyre clan does best.
Emily and Joey put their feelings aside, coming together in a desperate search for a way to save their little girl against all odds.
But the truth is that little Matilda Louise is the one who’s saving them.

Maggie Shayne never disappoints on any story! Oklahoma Starshine is wonderful! Can be a stand alone book...even, though there are other books in the series. Enjoyed the characters and the story. Showed going from doubt or almost nil faith to full blossomed faith of many people to a miracle! And, I, strongly recommend others to buy it for 99 cents. It was well worth the small price.
I just now saw another review dated Dec. 20th, 2017...I liked all that I read EXCEPT I DID NOT FIND ANY EDITING ERRORS--that this review stated.
Loved the book. Hard to put down. Had a lot of editing errors.
