Spring. The snows have retreated. Or have they?
On the grounds of a great estate, an amazing birthday party is in full swing. Beautifully wrapped gifts are piled a mile high. An ice cream snow castle flows with cider. You take a seat to enjoy the festivities. But as you look around you notice something odd. Where are the children?
Only one is there, a young girl. You watch as she hurriedly tears through dozens of gifts, as though she is in search of a lost valuable. But what is she looking for? At last she hesitates. She has opened the last box. Her eyes are focused on the contents. You strain to see what she sees. She takes a card from inside the box. What a strange place for the card to be. She reads it. Then, for a moment that seems an eternity, the earth stands still.
WHAT Travelers ARE SAYING
This sweet story of a lonely girl whose only wish could never come true is a lesson in coping with disappointment. When we learn the mystery of faith, we have a Father who never leaves us truly lonely . . . –Lisa Lickel, Living Our Faith Out Loud
An excellent story for readers who like adventures, mysteries, and learning about God’s love in a way even a child can understand it. A great tale of redemption, love, hope, and faith. –Sally Shupe, Book Reviews
Winter arrives early, as it usually does. And much happens at the great estate. There's a terrible fire. A mysterious stranger leaves footprints in the snow outside the young girl's window. But you're not there to see it. You had to return home. But now you're yearning to return. You'll need snowshoes, a parka, and a large thermos of hot chocolate. And, of course, a ticket there.
