From Joseph Pittman, the acclaimed author of TILTING AT WINDMILLS and A CHRISTMAS WISH, return to the land of Linden Corners and the spinning, all-knowing windmill for another heart-warming tale of holiday magic.
ONE FINAL CHRISTMAS WISH COULD CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOREVER…
Nora Connors Rainer has returned to her hometown, Linden Corners, to tend to her elderly but spunky pie-baking mother—and to nurse a broken heart. To keep busy, Nora opens “A Doll’s Attic,” a consignment shop where locals can unload their unwanted heirlooms. And the upcoming holidays are bringing a host of interesting objects—and people—through her doors.
Eighty-five year old Thomas Van Diver hands Nora her first challenge: track down a rare, vintage item that holds powerful childhood memories for him—memories of his father and their last Christmas together before he went off to the war and never returned.
Helping them both is Brian Duncan, whose farmhouse and windmill Thomas once called home. Together with his irrepressible young charge, Janey Sullivan, Brian will uncover the mysteries of Christmas past—and create a Christmas present that just might restore their hope, and fulfill everyone’s deepest wishes.
