From the founder of Mannheim Steamroller, the music group that has redefined Christmas with their innovative sound, comes a heartwarming novel about the spirit of the holidays -- complete with an exclusive Mannheim Steamroller CD!

When Evan Darling realizes that his children have become so focused on gifts that they've completely lost sight of the true meaning of Christmas, he knows he has to do something to help them see the wonder of it all. As a blizzard rages, Evan sits the family down and tells them the extraordinary tale of a young boy's magical experience during another blizzard long ago. When that boy was ten years old, he, too, thought Christmas traditions were pointless and dumb. The only thing he liked was the music. But when a magical snow globe opened his eyes to the magic of Christmas and the perils of greed, he found himself waging a dramatic battle to save Christmas for all time. It's time for Evan's children to learn the story of that brave young boy and to discoverthe mystery of his identity, for it is the story that inspires Evan himself to hold Christmas so close to his heart.

Enhanced by original music and Christmas favorites performed by Mannheim Steamroller, this magical story provides the gift of a moving, uplifting Christmas experience to families everywhere.
