Remy Pepin is orphaned, poor, and bullied by his employer. His only source of hope is a superstition about a lit candle sitting by a window, which is said to attract luck. Day after day, Remy lights his candle and waits. One snowy evening, a boy appears at his doorstep, seeking shelter.
Remy Pépin’s been dealt too many harsh blows in his young life. Orphaned, miserably poor, and subjected to occasional bullying from his employer, Remy’s only source of joy and hope is in a superstition shared by a dear friend, Mathilde Jolicoeur. It’s a superstition involving a lit candle sitting by a window, which Mathilde claims attracts luck.
Day after day, Remy lights his candle and waits, convincing himself not to hope for good fortune to come his way -- until one snowy evening, when another boy appears at his doorstep, seeking shelter.
