If you could change your life by reversing your biggest regrets, sorrows, and mistakes . . . would you?
When Eddie was twelve years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. He knew money had been tight since his father died, but Eddie dreamed that "somehow "his mother would find a way to afford that dream bike.
What he got from her instead was a sweater. " A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater "that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.
Scarred deeply by the fateful events that transpired that day, Eddie begins a dark and painful journey toward manhood. It will take wrestling with himself, his faith, and his family and the guidance of a mysterious neighbor named Russell to help Eddie find his life's path and finally understand the significance of that simple gift his mother had crafted with love.
