Franklin thought his estate and businesses belonged to him, until an unknown grandmother shows up with proof that she owns the billionaire’s fortune. She plans to give him all rights to his empire if he can do just one thing; work for two weeks before Christmas at Sprucewood, Colorado’s Camp for Special Needs Kids, and perhaps learn that work and making money are only of value in God’s eyes if mixed with a bit of Charity.
When he’s paired off with Sprucewood’s own mayor’s daughter Audrey, who has recently discovered ‘Jesus’ and wants to do something of value in life, the two of them begin to have their eyes opened to the needs of others.
Will they both find the spirit of Charity, before Christmas or will Franklin’s desire to gain his inheritance and go back to his former life keep them from finding true and lasting love?
