A little girl’s Christmas wish comes at a high cost.
Emma’s Christmas list isn’t like other kids’. Instead of toys, she wants her mama’s cancer to go away, the town to stop arguing over the Ten Commandments, and nice Mr. Whitmire to reunite with his estranged daughter. Grandma Doreen holds the key to a family secret that just might fulfill some of Emma’s desires, but not before tragedy strikes.
A young girl’s heart for helping takes her to a dark place only the Light of Christmas can illumine.
When the Sandy Hook shootings occurred in December, 2012, I thought, How could I craft a story that might encourage parents? The answer came when I decided to write December Sunrise from the viewpoint of a deceased child. My goal was to offer hope in a beautiful world beyond where murdered children frolicked and laughed and prayed for their families on earth.
My prayer is that families will read and discuss this story together. In an age where so many of us are caught up with Facebook, individual computer games, and television, what a refreshing thought to imagine families huddled together reading and processing various life issues. Even the very young have wisdom to offer.
