Fifteen-year-old Hannah Roberts remembers a time when her father was her closest friend, a loving man with a kind smile and an easy laugh. But the image is hazy, pulled from her distant childhood. Today, she lives a lonely life with her wealthy ailing grandmother outside Cleveland, Ohio.
It is three months before Christmas when Hannah learns a shocking truth. The man she believed was her father, the man she hasn't felt close to in many years, is not her father, after all. Her father is Air Force pilot Mike Conner.
Local politicians and the city's newspaper catch wind of Hannah's quest, and eventually the entire state knows about Hannah's hope, that she'll find her father before the holidays. Now, though, Mike Conner's life is in grave danger. It will take the hope stirred from an old pair of red gloves, and an unforgettable Christmas miracle to bring Hannah Roberts and her father together again.
