When all else is lost, the 'mandate of morality' guides someone like Shawn who practices law and faces the prospect of getting a $10 million investment that comes with caveats, that he's unwilling to concede to. Love and romance intrude into the equation, transmuting the painful tale of a desperate emigrant into something tinged with supercilious suspense. The twist and turns of events that follow are unrivaled in their intricacy, emotionalism, literary value and candid expositions. 'The Christmas Gift' is a truth-based fiction, woven with lucid illumination of human emotion, wayward love, legal conundrums and the attraction of a lady called Andria who's lonely but witty, rich but melancholy, enigmatic yet not ostentatious. Her adopted father Joe is about to make a Will to bequeath an estate of over $35 million to Andria, Joe passes away. Should Shawn believe Andria's version that Joe had signed the Will before breathing his last? Read it, know, and enjoy.
