When I was twelve, I made a naive, yet desperate pact with God to

So begins the story of Becky Owens, a talented and passionate young
pianist on the verge of adolescence when she learns the devastating news
of her mother’s critical illness. As the daughter of a country preacher
in Lancaster County, Becky knows well the significance of sacrifice,
and in her bargain with God, she vows to exchange her most cherished
possession for her mother’s life.
Hospital rules only add to Becky’s sorrow–twelve-year-olds aren’t
allowed to visit, so Becky and her mother must share tearful smiles
through Lancaster General’s sunroom window. But a realization of the
power of music and a lesson in unconditional love compel Becky to
rethink her “deal” with God, and the sunroom becomes a place where
miracles happen …
