Why do miracles and second chances always happen at Christmastime?

New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury presents this heartwarming Christmas story about a hundred-year flood, lost love, and the beauty of enduring friendships.

Kelly Allen lives alone in Portland, but her heart is back in Franklin, Tennessee, where five years ago she walked away from a man she cannot forget, a rare sort of love she hasn’t found since.

Kade Henderson lives in Franklin again after several years in Kentucky and a broken engagement. At least in Franklin he can visit The Bridge—the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin—and remember the long hours he and Kelly once spent there.

Now, though, Kade and Kelly’s favorite bookstore is in trouble. For thirty years, Jerry and Donna Barton have run The Bridge, providing the people of middle Tennessee with coffee, conversation, and shelves of good books—even through dismal book sales and the rise of eBooks. Then in May the hundred-year flood tore through Franklin and destroyed nearly every book in the store.

The bank is pulling the lease on The Bridge and is about to take the Bartons' house. Despondent and without answers, Jerry drives through a blinding snowstorm and considers ending his life. But before he can decide, he hits black ice and crashes into a utility pole.

Suddenly, in the face of tragedy, miracles begin to unfold.
