Summary
Five years ago, Earl Badgett lost his beloved wife and daughter -- and his faith in everything good. Angry and heartbroken, he took to the streets, where he slept in alleys and scavenged food from garbage cans. Now he is in a slow, anguished slide toward ending his life forever. He doesn't want anyone reaching out to him; especially not the pesky little girl who refuses to leave him in peace when he stops by the shelter for an occasional meal. He doesn't know that eight-year-old Gideon Mercer is a leukemia patient in remission with a fierce belief in Christmas miracles. When she gives Earl a gift, neither of them can imagine the present she's found will lead him to a heart wrenching reawakening. Or that someone's determination to return the favor will begin an unforgettable series of events
