A Heart for Christmas
Eit hjarte til jul
Magic in the Christmas tree forest
Nora’s mum is in the hospital. She needs a new heart to get better. Nora wants nothing more than her mum to be like she was before, but what if her mum becomes someone completely different with a new heart? Imagine if she doesn’t want to know Nora! The thought terrifies her. At times like this it’s good to have a grandma who knows about a magic Christmas tree forest. Together with her dad and grandma, Nora finds the perfect Christmas tree and a shooting star whizzes through the sky above.
Perhaps Nora’s wish for her mum to get better will come true after all…. A Heart for Christmas is a story about the painful thoughts that can arise when a loved one is seriously ill, but it is also a heart-warming tale about finding comfort and security, and about never giving up hope.
