About the Book
Why are so many people intrigued by the character of George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life? He was a talented young man with great dreams who ended up living a very different life than he expected because of life's unexpected turns. The character Molly in Joan Benson's book His Gift is in many ways a female version of George Bailey. She is a talented young female pianist who wins a student audition for the opportunity to play with the Detroit Symphony. The Great Depression dashed that dream just as it was beginning to blossom. Like George Bailey, Molly must find ways to overcome the grinding disappointment to discover her own wonderful life. Joan Benson has crafted a delightful tale based on her mother's story that is sure to inspire you to pursue your dreams despite all odds. Dr. Craig von Buseck, author of I Am Cyrus, Harry S.
