Book Summary

"The Gift" is a heart-wrenching, emotionally charged novel. It is the story of a family’s journey through a very difficult and turbulent year. Already having endured many hardships, this family is fractured without even realizing it until the youngest child becomes critically ill.

With Christmas approaching, the little girl’s health takes a dramatic turn for the worse. Her parents and brothers begin quietly falling apart - despite attempts from the Spirit Realm to assist. It doesn’t take long before the fractures are enormous cracks, threatening to shatter the family completely.

Four-year-old Angelina watches as her family is forced to confront its demons, and she longs for her parents and brother to find their way to healing. But as with many healing journeys, things must get a lot worse before even beginning to get better.

This story is certain to move its readers to tears as they connect and identify with each member of the Montgomery family. Meet Angelina and the others. Wife and mother, Lucy, so lost in her own emotions that she withdraws into a fantasy world. Her husband, Robert, guilt-ridden and feeling inadequate, who finds himself on a dangerous path with life-altering ramifications. Teen son, James, consumed by his own anger to the point of self-destruction with deadly consequences.

And Elijah, a wise old soul at the age of ten, choking on his own pain while trying desperately to be the glue that holds his family together.

He holds the key but no one is listening...

Follow these troubled hearts, who are lost and struggling to find their way through the darkness and who have lost all hope of ever finding the light.

"This is a wonderful, endearing book, with all the ingredients to stir your imagination and lift your hearts. The story tells a tale of how each member of a family deals with a difficult emotional situation. It will wring your heart out like a sponge, and yet it is beautifully orchestrated, showing raw emotions and how the family members deal with their own demons. I was so deeply moved by this book, I have ordered a copy for every member of the family and all of my friends!

"With an exceptionally emotionally charged ending, I cannot say enough about this book. It leaves you wanting more, wishing it didn't end, wishing you could know more about what happens to this family. (The author) is so descriptive and lets us known the characters so intimately, that we cannot help but feel that they are real people and we really want to follow their lives after the story ends…

"If you never buy another book again, you must buy this one! It is so powerful, so moving, so beautifully written, it is guaranteed to be an extremely satisfying read!"
