Aaron Chase, Izzie's father, did every single thing he could to make his daughter's Christmas wish list come true while his own heart was breaking. He was very lucky to have Nurse Christy by his side. She was just as determined to fill Izzie's wish list for reasons of her own. The soul baring scenes between Aaron and Christy were emotional, heartfelt, and realistic. Ms. Fasano has a way of exposing her characters core through dialog and picturesque scenes that put you there by their side to share their joys, sorrows, and emotions. Izzie was a delight in her idealist romantic view of the world and it was fun seeing the Christmas lights and the season itself through her eyes.
Ms. Fasano handled this painful story with realistic compassion and did an outstanding job leaving this couple with hope for an almost perfect future, which did leave me with a smile on my face and in my heart. I don't think there are many authors who could have carried this theme through as gracefully as Ms. Fasano managed to do. I hope we get to see more of Aaron and Christy in her Ocean City Boardwalk series.
Format/Typo Issues: I found no significant issues.

Oh my, this book had me crying. Maybe because I had just been to a funeral this morning for a friend who passed away from cancer but this had me tearing up from the get go.
This a beautifuly told story of loss, grief and love. Despite the beginning it has a happy ending. I wouldn't consider that to be spoiler... :) you will definitely need some tissues at the ready.
Izzie is mischievous little 8 year old and Aaron her dad will do anything to give her little girl her last wishes. Christy is an oncology childrens nurse who volunteers to help make Izzies Christmas wish come true - to be a family for Christmas.
For such a short story you go through so many emotions, and it a brilliantly told story of how two grieving people are brought together buy a little girl.
I started reading this book by Donna Fasano and it touched my heart because I can connect with the characters in this story.
The story is about a father, daughter, a wish list and a caring nurse. Izzie is very ill with cancer, she is an avid list maker and she has asked her father for a family Christmas with a make believe mommy as she lost her mum 2 years ago, and this is where the story starts with Aaron (the father) asking the staff at the hospital if anyone can help him give his daughter (Izzie), the family Christmas she wants. Christy (the nurse) steps forward and offers her assistance, to help Aaron help Izzie to tick off everything on her list.
I have to congratulate Donna Fasano on the compassionate way she has written this sad and beautiful love story, I read it in one sitting because I was drawn into this book. Emotion and love comes alive in these pages.
