Two homes in the mountains
Snowed in for winter’s keep;
A river in between them,
A rope tight o’er the deep.

A mother and her daughter,
A father and his son,
A cottage and a cabin,
A story yet unspun

But time did freeze a tin can
Dangling from that rope
A messenger from days gone by,
Echoing long lost hope.

Until a cold November day
Saw decades fall away;
Young hands inscribed a folded scrap,
A missive sent to say…

So begins the plucky correspondence of Timothy and Genevieve, two children about to uncover a story long-buried... one filled with love, with loss, and with hope. An enchanting Christmas story laced with joy, God's healing hand in the broken places of life weaves through each letter passed over the river in that tin-can strung from the rusted pulley.

Enter into a simpler time in this petite tale, written to be just long enough to tuck into a stolen moment as you rest your feet and quiet your heart in the bustle of a busy season.

What a delightful short story. Once I picked it up I couldn't wait to see how it ended. But then I was sad because I wanted more. Amanda Dukes is a very gifted talented writer.

Short and oh so sweet. What a delightful little tale, perfect to read from start to finish with a cup of tea on a cold winter's night. The storytelling technique of notes between two children was clever and beautifully executed. A refreshing and fulfilling story told through unique voices. I loved it--and even more so when I read the author's note at the end, explaining how she wove in some of her readers' Christmas memories into the story. Such a charming tribute to love, Christmas, God, and the readers this author clearly cares dearly about!
