Fifteen-year-old Hannah Roberts remembers when her father was her closest friend. The image is hazy, though, pulled from distant childhood memories. Now her father is a cold and distant politician too busy to spend time with his daughter. Her mother isn't much better. Feeling orphaned, Hannah lives a lonely life with her wealthy, ailing grandmother.
But this year is to be different. As Christmas nears, Hannah learns the shocking truth: The man she believes is her father in not her parent after all. In an effort to find answers, she begins a desparate search for her real father--the one she remembers from her past.
