In the hard-partying town of Redbud, 12-year-old Abby James prays for one ray of light: a church. To help fund her dream, Abby plans to present her play “Come, My Little Angel” on Christmas Eve. However, when the big day arrives, every man has been called to work, her piano player is drunk, and no audience shows up. Her plan is a complete disaster—or the perfect setting for a miracle.
In a mining town in the backwoods of the High Sierras, Daisy James prays for a miracle.This 10-year-old girl is concerned because people in her town are hurting. And the one who seems to be hurting the most is her own mother, who lost a baby a year earlier. Daisy is filled with sorrow inside because her mother, who used to sing and laugh and talk about God, no longer does any of those things. Now she spends her days silent and resigned. So the little girl decides what her town needs is a church, to touch their hearts and spirits, to remind them that God is there, and that His angels are watching over them all. Daisy dreams up a play entitled Come, My Little Angel, and recruits her classmates to play the roles and her beloved music teacher to provide the music. Despite the obstacles working against her, Daisy perseveres, even when her own faith is shaken, until she finds herself face to face with a miracle -straight from the hand of a God who longs to restore us to joy and singing. And when, at the end of the book, you see what God does for this little girl - and for the mother she loves so deeply - you come away knowing nothing - not one single thing - is impossible with God.
