Once upon a time, Christmas (Chrissy) Mooney believed she’d make a difference in the world as a concert violinist. Music was her love, and the reason she indulged in a whirlwind affair with a handsome stranger—a gifted guitarist who declared them soul mates when they parted. She never imagined he’d turn his back on her when, two months later, she tracked him down to tell him she was pregnant. How could she have misjudged him?
Determined to savor the gift of her baby, Chrissy was staggered when she learned her daughter was deaf. Her passion for music was obliterated. How could she enjoy what her daughter would never hear? Obsessed with creating a happy life for her girl, Chrissy ultimately lost her own sense of bliss—never realizing her growing cynicism until she reads her daughter’s letter to Santa.
Now, desperate to rediscover joy, Chrissy applies for help from an internet company—Impossible Dream.com (Making magic since 1956). When Mason suddenly blows back into Chrissy’s life, rocking her with a revelation and a mission of his own, she’s so busy shielding her heart that she’s oblivious to the stirring magic. Until Mason points out the most basic ingredient for happiness… Believing is everything.
