One Christmas season Ellie makes three wishes: that her parents will see that her friend Billy Lee is real and not make-believe; that snow will once again fall on Septon's Creek , where a flake hasn't appeared in fifty years; and that joy will return--especially to her parents, who always seem worried lately. Grandma whispers to Ellie that there is a secret hidden in snow, and if you unleash it, joy will be unleashed. Billy Lee always says, 'There is magic in believing something good with all your heart.' When Ellie begins to believe in the magic of Christmas, all kinds of miracles occur, from broken tree lights twinkling again, to angel shapes appearing in snow, to the biggest of all: a baby brother arriving soon. It all happened in the time of Billy Lee.
Designed for families to read together on Christmas Eve, this story captures the wonder and mystery of the holiday.
