A great read for really any age with a powerful message


Ruth Preston is struggling. Bills are coming in, money is dwindling along with their hopes. Then Jenny, her daughter, volunteers to help. While out selling some of the last of their belongings, a precious treasure is unwittingly sold. What transpires next is a miracle of selfless giving and a lesson on the true meaning of Christmas and why all IS well.

Note: This book has been republished under the title "All is Well - the Miracle of Christmas in July". Some plot changes include: death of father and a boy named Jason rather than the girl Jenny.


A father is obviously missing from the story. Good is good.
