Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Raised in a political family, 15-year-old Hannah Roberts lives a lonely life with her wealthy, unaffectionate grandmother while her parents work abroad. As Christmas nears, Hannah learns a shocking truth: the man she believed was her father is not her parent after all. In an effort to find answers, she begins a desperate search for her real father, Air Force pilot Mike Conner, who she discovers to be the man of her distant childhood memories. Local politicians and the city's newspaper catch wind of her quest, and the entire state joins in Hannah's hope that she'll find her father before Christmas.

Library Journal Review

Because her father is the U.S. ambassador to Sweden, 15-year-old Hannah has been left in the care of her elderly grandmother while she attends a Washington, DC, prep school. Hannah wants nothing more than to have her parents home for Christmas, but her world turns upside down when she learns that her true biological father is an enigmatic dreamer who lost touch with Hannah's mother, Carol, when she was very young. Hannah's search for her father leads her to air force pilot Mike Conner, who has just accepted a dangerous mission in Iraq. The final book in the "Red Glove" series (after Gideon's Gift and Maggie's Miracle) is a warm, sentimental Christmas story that will delight Kingsbury's many fans. Recommended for public libraries. Dubbed the "Christian Danielle Steele," this best-selling author resides in the Northwest. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
