What would you give to hear your mother's heartbeat again?
Two years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter's daughter Erin and her family. Prompted by grief, John invites a stranger for Christmas Eve. But not just any stranger: Kendra Bryant is the recipient of Erin's heart. John knows the invitation will impact each of his adult kids and their families. But will they choose to embrace their guest? And how will the woman's presence affect his granddaughter Amy–the only survivor of the accident?
Kendra Bryant has been struggling since her heart transplant to make sense of the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes this invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill peace and happiness back into her life.
At the same time, Maddie West, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again?
Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and redemption, A Baxter Family Christmas brings two families together in the aftermath of loss and in the midst of an unfolding love story.
