Laurel McCullough was ten when her mom died unexpectedly and she went to live with her grandparents. Now Laurel and her husband, Zach, are back living with her grandmother, Helen, or Nana, after IVF drained their savings. Trying to adopt was another heartbreaking experience for the couple and left them wondering if they just aren’t meant to be parents. When Helen’s serious issues with her memory require a daily caretaker for her safety, Mrs. Miracle arrives and wonderful changes begin to happen.
VERDICT This latest sweet, inspirational story from Macomber has enough dramatic surprises to keep pages turning. Likable characters and a satisfying ending make this a great choice for readers who enjoy sentimental, holiday-themed TV movies.
