One long-ago Christmas, Big Earl Gibson lost the two things most precious to him – his wife and two daughters. Angry and heartbroken, he abandoned his belief in God and is now living on the street.
Gideon is a seven-year-old leukemia patient determined to reach out to this lonely and hurting man. And Earl is just as determined to rebuff her. That is when Gideon decides to save all her money to buy Earl a Christmas gift.
It is only through a miracle that Earl finally comes to understand the true meaning of Christmas. And it’s only then that he can return the favour with a precious gift of his own -one that will change both his and Gideon’s lives forever.
