5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Story of Transformation December 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The mysterious and the heartfelt collide in this lovely, beautifully rendered and very surprising short story that reveals that what we think we believe and know about ourselves isn't always the truth about who we are. In a few short pages, the author gives the reader (with brevity and levity) the story of how an unexpected gift of revelation can transform a life. A perfect read, apropos for the Christmas season - and for any time of the year!
