The ritual is the same every December: twelve handmade paper ornaments and a small plastic Christmas tree. Twelve days for Sarah to remember her long-ago love. Twelve chances for Sarah to sing her song once more... Every year Sarah Lindeman celebrates Christmas in a special way. It is her time to remember where she came from and what she is today-and how a special song gave her another chance at love. But this year the ritual is different. This year a desperate young woman is listening-a nurse who lingers by the door as Sarah hangs the first yellowed decoration on her tiny tree. Sarah feels the hurt in this woman's soul and reaches out to her. Her hope is that she can do something to help both of them. And so the older woman sings. Each day she hangs a paper ornament on her tree and relives a chapter of her story, drawing her new friend into the hallways of yesterday and a love that rose and fell, only to bloom again stronger than ever. Sarah knows the heartache that results from making bad choices. And she knows, too, how God can redeem any situation-her own life is proof of that. As Sarah sings, she prays her new friend will understand the true gift of love-and that to give it up without a fight means to give up on life itself. But will Sarah be able to convince this troubled young woman before time runs out? Twelve days. Two lives. And one song-"Sarah's Song"-that just might bring about a miracle for everyone who hears it.
The ritual is the same every December: twelve handmade paper ornaments and a small plastic Christmas tree; twelve days for eighty-six-year-old Sarah Baldwin to remember her long-ago love; twelve chances for Sarah to sing her song once more, even just from her room in the lonely nursing home. But this year is different. This time, a desperate young woman is listening, and maybe she will find a way to sing as well. As Sarah hangs the first yellowed ornament on the tree, she notices the young nursing student lingering in the doorway and invites her in. Each day the young woman returns and listens allowing herself to be drawn into the hallways of yesterday with a woman the world has forgotten, After they talk, Sarah sings quiet and clear for all she's worth. When the twelve days have passed, both women have changed, and the music is at the center of the miracles-one of reliving the past, one of renewed hope for the future.
