Summary

Celeste is mourning the tragic death of her young son, Jack, who died from leukaemia. So when she learns that her nephew is coming to stay, she doesn't think she can bear to have another child in the house.

But when Bruno arrives, she has no choice but to make him feel welcome and loved, even though her heart is breaking. And when he starts to show some insight into what Jack was like, Celeste dares to dream there might be something more than meets the eye....

Such a touching story

I really identified with this story as I also lost a son. The way Celeste felt was so like me and I too have come to terms with it. Santa is a wonderful story teller and describes everything so vividly.
