A frightening diagnosis, a haunting sacrifice, and a young girl's hope bind the lives of a family together....

"When I was twelve, I made a naïve yet desperate pact with God to keep my ailing mother alive. It was the first time I'd ventured anything so brazen-making a contract with the Almighty."

So begins the story of Becky Owens, a talented and passionate young pianist on the verge of adolescence when she learns devastating news about her beloved mother. As the daughter of a country preacher in Lancaster County, Becky knows the significance of sacrifice, and in her "arrangement" with God, she vows to exchange her most cherished possession for her mother's life.

Hospital rules back then only add to Becky's sorrow-twelve-year-olds aren't allowed to visit, so Becky and her mother must share tearful smiles through Lancaster General's sunroom window. But a realization of the power of music and a lesson in unconditional love compel Becky to rethink her bargain with God, and the sunroom becomes a place where miracles happen....
