Remember the true meaning of Christmas with this heartfelt and beautiful novel from bestselling author Emma Heatherington.

Can a single act of kindness change a life forever?

To many people, Ruth Ryans has everything: the perfect job, a beautiful home and a loving family. But as Christmas approaches, Ruth feels lonelier than ever.

Then Ruth meets Michael. A man who she showed kindness to during his darkest moment. That one single act, his miracle, helped change his life forever.

Ruth decides to make this Christmas the most perfect one ever, opening up her home to those who need her help – the lonely, the lost and the ignored.

Actions speak louder than words and Ruth Ryans’ kindness will create little miracles for everyone … including her own battered heart.

A beautiful book and a must read to get a feel for the true spirit of Christmas.  

I had been meaning to read a book by Emma Heatherington for a while, and when this one appeared, I just couldn't resist any longer, especially with its gorgeous cover.  I suspected that it might bit more emotional than some of the Christmas books out there, but nothing could have prepared me for just what a marvellous story it was. 

This is a story that can potentially change if notl lives then the certainly people's mentalities. It is a story that doesn't focus on the material side of Christmas, but rather reaches out to those in need and are feeling lonely at Christmas and highlights a whole set of scenarios as to why someone may feel lonely at Christmas. 

It is a timely reminder that you have no idea what is going on beneath the surface of anyone's lives, and not to judge based on how they appear to be the whole time.   

If the blurb even sounds remotely like your sort of book, I would urge you to take a chance and you won't be disappointed.  I've not really touched on the plot purely because I came into it with no knowledge or expectations and think that may be the best way to discover this journey you are going on with this book.  I found it very compelling to read and finished it before i had finished the train journeys I was reading it on, as I was so absorbed. 

It is amazing just how far one small act of kindness can really go, both to give and to receive - and all of this is highlighted in a simply lovely book.  It is heartwarming, it gives a really feel good vibe to it and its a book I feel all the more enriched for having read. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Impulse for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
