Another novella by Melody Carlson, this is a more melancholy story than I expected. There are still some chuckles, and it is definitely an inspiring story. Claire is an artist, but she hasn’t painted since the death of her husband and son. Sheltered in a friend’s secluded cabin in the mountains, she is surprised by two sets of footprints in the snow and the snow angels they lead to.
In the cabin she begins once again to pray, to paint, and to hope. I love this story and look forward to reading it every year.
