Sometimes miracles do happen.
When Maggie left her husband Ross that fateful Christmas Eve, their marriage was over. But a near fatal accident on an ice-slick road changed everything. Now another Christmas approaches. While Maggie hasn't regained all her memory, she's ready to test her strength at home—with Ross as her only companion. Sharing a house with him once more, putting on the best face for their neighbors, Maggie knows she's living a lie. Then she glimpses Ross as he used to be: playful and passionate, the man of her dreams before ambition changed him. She couldn't know he's feeling the same regrets, the same heartache . . . or that he fears the return of her memory. What will happen when she remembers the reason she fled from him last year? It will take a miracle to send the walls of anger and secrecy tumbling down and reunite the divided couple. But in the small town of Bethlehem, miracles do happen. . . .
Pappano takes readers back to the fictional town of Bethlehem, N.Y. (from Season of Wishes), for a season of tree trimming, cookie baking and personal rebirth in her holiday heart-warmer. All of Bethlehem's citizens--human and angelic--are gearing up for the holiday season, including Maggie McKinney, who has spent the past year recovering from a near-fatal car crash that left her scarred and suffering from a slight case of amnesia. The only thing she remembers clearly is that she and Ross, her workaholic husband of 16 years, had planned to divorce. Ross, whose one indiscretion caused Maggie's accident and has left him guilt-ridden, insists on staying with her until she can adjust to living on her own. As Bethlehem weaves its magic, Ross begins to redefine his values and Maggie learns to forgive. This uplifting tale is for everyone who believes in love.
