Dora de Angelo was never supposed to be an angel—her soul was sent to the wrong place—and she has always wanted to be a mortal. Maybe that's why she is one of the most inept angels the Celestial Maintenance Department has had the misfortune to employ. At long last, Dora has received her mission and is sent to Earth. For the three weeks prior to Christmas she must show a man how find his faith in family and help a little girl to become a child again after a terrible tragedy strikes her family. This is not going to be easy. But when Dora reaches Earth, she finds it even more wonderful than she imagined: she finds family, discovers love, and begins to hope for a future she's only dreamed of.
