Every Christmas is an opportunity to rediscover the true meaning of the season, and the miracles that are the greatest gifts .  .  .

Twelve-year-old Katie Williams has already received an extraordinary holiday gift this year, passed down from her great-grandmother. Katie has been blessed with second sight. So far her visions have helped her avert tragedy, and brought her beloved long-lost Uncle Charlie back to the family--but can they help keep him there?

Charlie has a lot to be thankful for this Christmas. He's back in his hometown and ready for a fresh start. A job as the local mall Santa Claus seems like a good way to begin--until his misguided past comes back to haunt him, dashing his hopes for the future.

Can Katie help keep her uncle's dreams alive? Christmas Eve will tell, as the love and faith of friends and family--along with a dash of frankincense and myrrh--ignite a powerful magic within every heart.  .  .a magic that may bring one man the greatest gift of all.

From Publishers Weekly:

Katie Williams, the protagonist of this so-so Christmas yarn, can see things before they happen, and though few believe her, she uses her gift to try to save her ex-con uncle Charlie. Fresh out of prison, Charlie's having some trouble adjusting to the outside; Katie foresees trouble, and, sure enough, Charlie is approached by criminals who want to entice him back into a life of crime. Charlie and Katie must figure out how to keep their family safe, stay out of prison and have a merry Christmas together. Charlie's internal conflict is palpable, and Katie's gift is even plausible, though the supernatural elements are often paired with hokey spiritual sentimentality. If you can slog through the sappy parts, there's some fun to be had. (Oct.)
