Joy Candellaro once loved Christmas more than any other time of the year. Now, recently divorced and alone for the holidays, Joy buys a plane ticket and heads for the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where she makes a bold decision to leave her ordinary life behind--to just walk away. But nothing could have prepared her for the journey she is about to take. In small town Rain Valley, six-year-old Bobby O'Shea is facing his first Christmas without a mother. Unable to handle the loss, Bobby has closed himself off from the world, talking only to his invisible friend. Yet, when the little boy meets Joy, these two unlikely souls for a deep and powerful bond. Not everything is as it seems in quiet Rain Valley. There, in a deep and magical woodland, Joy must let go of everything she thinks she knows about the world and embrace the unimaginable.
