Sometimes, the things that can change your life will cross your path in one instant-and then, in a fleeting moment, they're gone. But if you open your eyes, and watch carefully, you will believe....Robert is a successful attorney who has everything in life-and nothing at all. Focused on professional achievement and material rewards, Robert is on the brink of losing his marriage. He has lost sight of his wife, Kate, their two daughters, and ultimately himself. Eight year old Nathan has a beloved mother, Maggie, whom he is losing to cancer. But Nathan and his family are building a simple yet full life, and struggling to hold onto every moment they have together. A chance meeting on Christmas Even brings Robert and Nathan together-he is shopping for a family he hardly knows and Nathan is shopping for a mother he is soon to lose. In this one encounter, their lives are forever altered as Robert learns an important lesson: sometimes the smallest things can make all the difference. The Christmas Shoes is a universal story of the deeper meaning of serendipity, a tale of our shared humanity, and of how a power greater than ourselves can shape, and even save, our lives.

I can now offcially say that I have read the book, seen the movie, and heard the song of The Christmas Shoes. All of which, by the way, make me cry my eyes out. The book is written beautifully and it opened my eyes to a lot. Thank you Donna Vanliere for writing this amazing book. P.S. I also find it...
Such a sad but beautiful story. Absolutely loved it altough I was in great need for some tissues. How such a small thing can change so much. Definitely a perfect Christmas read.
I had heard the song before this so I knew what it would be about and I love Christmas stories. It's a heart breaker about a little boy and how he helps his sick mom.
