CHRISTMAS LETTERS by Adam Schnell
When Muriel, an offbeat angelic stenographer finally gets her first probationary field assignment, she couldn’t be more thrilled. But completing her mission proves more challenging then she thought! Intercepted on the way to his father’s funeral, Todd, her earthly charge, refuses to read the letter she has for him. With time running out, Muriel’s unconventional training and eager innocence propel them through a series of unorthodox revelations that culminate in a big surprise for each of them.
