From the New York Times best-selling author of Christmas Jars comes a powerful story of friendship and faith.
Marva Ferguson has a very personal Christmas tradition that happens the day after Christmas. As a widow, the tradition means more to her now than it ever did. Her newest neighbor, nine-year-old Charlee, loves Christmas, too. But her family has fallen on hard times, and things get worse when Charlee becomes critically ill. Then, on December 12, Charlee makes a wonderful discovery. A mysterious note is delivered that promises 12 days of gifts and stories that will reveal the true story behind the beloved Christmas carol "The 12 Days of Christmas".
As the days go by, the gifts seem to hint at a possible lost lyric. Was there once a 13th day of Christmas? And if so, could its magic change - or save - a life?
If Marva knows something about the "letters from the Elves", she's not telling. However, you don't live to be as old as Marva Ferguson and not have a secret or two - including a whole lot of faith - in your apron pocket. Filled with laughter, tenderness, and hope, The 13th Day of Christmas invites us to see how an old Christmas favorite can turn into a true Christmas miracle.
