Synopsis:Rising newspaper reporter Hope Jensen uncovers the secret behind the "Christmas Jars" glass jars filled with coins and bills anonymously given to people in need. But Hope discovers much more than she bargained for when some unexpected news sets off a chain reaction of kindness and brings above a Christmas Eve wish come true."
Watch a touching story. This book will pull at your heart strings from the very first page. The whole idea behind the Christmas jars was so touching and thought provoking. After reading this book you will want to start your own Christmas jar. Hope was such a determined person from the time she was little and knew what she wanted. Then along the way she kind of got served a piece of humble pie. Don't get me wrong she was a good person all the way to the end of the book but in her own mind she did something wrong. You will find a lump in your throat as I did while reading this. I just found out there is a sequel to this book which I have to have. This is the second book I have read by this author and he does a great job of making you really stop and think while enjoying a touching story.
