Christmas—a time of family, tradition, togetherness. But what happens to a single mom when her parents are dead, and her daughters worry that Santa, like Daddy, won’t show up? Is the magic of Christmas an illusion? Or will that magic appear on Christmas morning like all the other gifts of the season?
Includes complete bonus story "Canopy."
