Summary
(Previously published as A CHRISTMAS GIFT with Whimsical Publications) Justin Reeves is a man who has it all: a good job, a loving wife and children who are the center of his universe. Justin also has a secret he's hidden from everyone his entire life. Quite innocently seven-year-old Debby, stumbles upon her father's secret on a summer night in 1957. She confronts her father with the awful truth. Justin is touched by her concern and offer of help. When nothing is done by any of the adults in the family, Debby prays to Jesus for someone to help her father. Not only is her eloquent prayer instrumental in changing her father's life, but it starts a chain reaction in each family member's life. The older sister, Gail, is in love with a man Debby doesn't like. Her middle sister, Kathy, who wanted to be a dancer, struggles with the physical infirmity that has crippled her every bit as much as their father's once-secret flaw limits him. Debby's brother, Carl, worries about the future because of his commitment to the army. Even their mother, Lucille Reeves, although devoted to her husband and children, now hopes to broaden her personal horizons. Justin, his wife and children all are blessed by positive life changes because of Debby's prayer. Father and daughter together embark upon a journey which takes Justin from the darkness of shame into the light of victory. When he finally accomplishes what he wanted his whole life, Justin reaches out to his family in a special way on Christmas Day. His gift to his wife, daughters and son influences them all for a lifetime
