The Greatest Gift
Immerse yourself in an engaging tale of faith, hope, and love as they converge on three lives that intertwine in ways they couldn't have imagined.
Thirty-something Kallie Molloy enjoys a nice life in San Diego; a downtown condo, a decent job, and a good man. Without warning, her world quickly begins to unravel until the only option available to her is an unexpected job offer from a soccer club in Minnesota. The offer stirs up mixed emotions from her past, but taking a leap of FAITH might be the only path to a fresh start.
After a tragic night sent his life into a tailspin and feeling overwhelmed by the constant, plaguing reminders of a life that no longer existed, pro soccer players’ agent, Chris Bedford quietly ran from his life in tiny Northfield, Minnesota to the anonymity of Chicago. Years later, for his daughter's sake, he nervously contemplates their return to Northfield, the same place where he was robbed of all HOPE.
Retired attorney and unassuming widower, Stanley Beckham, occupies his days managing The Study, a bookstore-coffee shop, inspired by his late wife. Not only a wildly popular local favorite, it's his way of keeping her spirit alive. Though he enjoys providing a haven for patrons of all kinds, he begins to wonder if it's where he's supposed to be. Is he really honoring the lost LOVE of his life or is he merely hiding in the backdrop?
Some journeys are priceless...
Elaine McGillicuddy, semi-retired Marriage & Family Therapist and Stanley Beckham, retired attorney, two successful golden-agers in Northfield, Minnesota, are trying on the idea of a Baby Boomer romance, but falling in love isn’t any easier the second time around.
As Elaine begins to embrace the idea of exploring something deeper with Stanley she receives a phone call from her estranged daughter, a country music washout living in Nashville who only calls when she needs something. Elaine is forced to balance her suspicions with an opportunity to stay involved in her granddaughter’s life.
Stanley warms to the idea of pursuing something with her too, but their carefully orchestrated rhythm quickly takes a turn when he finds himself squarely in the center of Elaine’s family drama and wondering if being alone is exactly where he needs to be.
Attempting to bridge the widening rift between Elaine and Stanley is Elaine’s son, Luke, who recently decided to leave the Army’s elite Delta Force to make a life for himself in Northfield.
As Luke struggles with his choice to leave the Army, he unexpectedly crosses paths with Roma Parks, a single mother who's several years older than him, but every bit his match.
Will spring romance flourish or will it be easier to do things the way they've always been done?
