Do You Believe? New York City. On cold October day, twenty-six-year-old Victoria writes a letter to Santa Claus, nothing unusual, something she did from a young age. All she wants from life is a little mystery to break her everyday routine-and she didn't have to wait long for her wish to come true. After a fantastic ice-skating dance with her mysterious Flash on Columbus Day, Victoria receives an invite to her cousin's wedding in Italy. But when her flight to Europe takes the wrong turn-one can only dream of-Victoria will find herself with a responsibility upon her shoulders that will not only test her relationship with family and friends but will also change her life. How can she find a man who disappeared twenty years ago, start a new relationship, and show that people are still good-all without revealing the Winter Lands' existence to her loved ones? How can she prove that the Christmas spirit is very much alive and more significant than the holiday's material aspect? But above all, how can she explain a talking bear? ❄︎ The author's upbringing in Europe, with delightful old-fashioned Christmas traditions, inspired the creation of Tale of The Winter Lands. JD Bass is sharing a heartfelt story that will spread the holiday cheer and inspire kindness in the readers.
