Synopsis

It is True Dickinson's birthday and her best friends have gathered on this snowy night to celebrate—yet True has never felt more alone. Though her small business is thriving and her young son is happy, the death of her husband eight years ago has left an empty space in her life that friends and family cannot fill. Suddenly it seems that youth and beauty are slipping away while True is busily taking care of everyone else.

But on this night, an accident on an icy road will offer True the golden opportunity to let love back into her life—if she can somehow conquer her fears.

Twelve Times Blessed is a powerfully moving novel of the heart from one of our best-loved storytellers.
