There is no hurt so great that love cannot heal it.
Nathan Hurst hated Christmas. For the rest of the world it was a day of joy and celebration; for Nathan it was simply a reminder of the event that destroyed his childhood until a snowstorm, a cancelled flight and an unexpected meeting with a young mother and her very special son would show him that Christmas is indeed t...more
This is about a boy who died, came back to life, but had a power to heal. It really takes off and you can't leave it alone. Every story Richard puts a piece of himself into it in some way.

Collin não precisou de sonhar. Com apenas nove anos já viu este mundo e o outro como ninguém. Enfrentou as portas do Céu, mas recusou-se a entrar. Não era ainda a sua hora. Regressou à vida para mostrar o seu dom.

This book did not disappoint. The characters were vivid. I distinctly knew who I like and did not. The storyline was tender. Another classic Evans tale with purpose and message. You'll need a box of Kleenex for this one. ...more
