Library JournalFollowing his wife’s death, Clem and his young son, Jakey, move to Cornwall, England, to be closer to Clem’s mother, Dossie. Clem finds work as a groundskeeper at a nearby convent where the elderly nuns become a surrogate family. But when a mysterious stranger arrives in town, Clem and the nuns’ peaceful existence is threatened. Now they’ll need some heavenly inspiration to contemplate a new future if they’re going to spend another Christmas together. VERDICT Willett (The Summer House; A Week in Winter) deftly portrays all of the characters in this touching multigenerational story of love and family.
