On Saturdays, Destiny helps Mrs. Wade at the store, and at day's end they relax together, drinking tea and reading.

As she works to help keep the store open, she also creates an imaginative gift for Mrs. Wade that captures the warmth and special magic of the store forever.Destiny's Gift is a heartwarming celebration of friendship and creativity, and a touching tribute to a child's love for reading and the power of words.
