It had been one year and Roland Hope had not learned a damn thing.
Now, the week before Christmas, his world as a high-powered labour negotiator is falling apart. His wife Jodi wants a divorce. His homeless, alcoholic father shows up unexpectedly, with a load of troubles.
And the killer instincts he used to build a remarkable legal career have failed him for the first time ever.
In this contemporary Christmas story, Roland turns to an unlikely source of inspiration – an old Fender Stratocaster guitar gifted to him by his once-famous musical father.
Facing the prospect of the bleakest Christmas of his life, Roland discovers the old Stratocaster still has some tricks left in it, as he rekindles a love for music he thought had long ago died inside him.
In the spirit of It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol, this story of one man’s musical salvation will inspire your faith in the most magical season of the year.

About the Author: Steve Moretti
I have always been drawn to passion and creativity in all its forms. I am equally fascinated by the mechanics of the universe and the characters of history. I have a special affection for the power of music which I believe is the universal language of human emotion.
My writing journey started in journalism, public relations and advertising then continued into software development. For the last few years I have been writing time slip novels and stories. My first series, Song for a Lost Kingdom is an historical fantasy trilogy.
The follow-up is the Michael Angelo trilogy, featuring some of the key characters from Song for a Lost Kingdom. I also co-authored a biography on the life of Pyotr Tchaikovsky and contributed to a set of short stories called Seven Deadly Pens.
I grew up in London, Ontario (Canada) and also lived in Pompano Beach, Florida as a teenager. I moved to Ottawa and attended Carleton University and now live just south of the city with my wife, our two dogs and a garden full of possibilities.
