One Holy Night

On this bleak Christmas Eve God has in mind a miracle. As on that holy night so long ago … in a world torn by sin and strife … to a family that has suffered heart-wrenching loss … there will be born a baby …

Destined to become a classic for all seasons, One Holy Night retells the Christmas story in a strikingly original way—through the discovery of a baby abandoned in the manger of a church’s nativity scene.

Reduced to watching new neighbors move in as a form of amusement, Glory Harper is stuck in a wheelchair with a broken leg, bored and itching for excitement. She just doesn’t expect it to come in the form of a foot dangling out the back of a carpet being carried into her new neighbor’s house—and a detective who could pass for Harrison Ford.
