Summary
Ten-year-old Judith McPherson's world is carefully constructed around her faith. With no TV and no worldly books to entertain her, she passes time by making The Land of Decoration, a model in miniature of The Promised Land. But Judith is being bullied at school, and a strike threatens the factory where her father works. Agitated, Judith conjures a snowstorm in The Land of Decoration made of shaving cream, cotton and cellophane. The next morning the ground outside her window is a crisp, dazzling white. Judith can perform miracles. In fact, she might just be God's chosen instrument. But with power comes weighty consequences that threaten the foundations of her world.
