About the Book:
One night will change their lives forever... Georgia Bailey is closing up her little charity shop in Oakbarrow when she gets a mysterious late night call from a stranger, threatening to jump off the town's bridge. Something about the man's voice is faintly familiar but all she can do is stay on the line and after talking for hours, losing sense of time passing, coax him back from the edge. The next morning, Georgia walks to work, buys a festive latte from Leo (who she's had a crush on for months!) at the local coffee shop, and is shocked when she suddenly recognizes the voice from last night. A heartwarming festive love story that reminds us that even in the darkest of times, hope is always just around the corner.

For everyone. You are good enough. No matter how impossible things seem, you truly have a wonderful life, and the world will always be better with you in it.
This story is full of charming sentiment, realistic life stories and characters so authentic, you expect them to be sitting in the room with you. There are plenty romantic moments interwoven with despair, goodness, humour and sadness.

Sometimes the people who smile the widest are the ones who are suffering the most.
The storytelling was filled with warmth and empathy and included more than a sprinkle of wonder and love. Each character was beautifully drawn, so that they came alive in my own life and I really cared about what happened to them. I cried and smiled in almost equal proportions and more than that I dreaded the times I had to stop reading this story, but I was also aware that when I reached the end of it I would feel sad. Yes, it was that wonderful.

It is their belief in Christmas magic that has made this quiet little street come back to life.
I won't spoil the story for potential readers but be prepared to experience the full spectrum of emotions when you read this. The writing is sensitive. Even in its darkest moments you can see glimmers of light and these keep you turning the pages.

Everything feels a bit more twinkly and magical tonight than it does usually, like anything could happen.
I absolutely loved this magical Christmas novel, a heartfelt, provoking tale, of an individual's importance in the world.

You reached out for help when you needed it. That’s the bravest thing anyone can do.
