The star that led the three wise men could be the same star wished upon this Christmastime by three young women

Brenda struggles between noble intentions and earthier desires when she becomes a dying boy's final chance for happiness in "Last Dance."
The closing story, "Kathy's Life," presents a sisteen-year-old who appears to have it all. Kathy is beautiful and intelligent and has the perfect job, as a live-in caregiver for a couple's baby boy. But not everything is as perfect as it seems. Must Kathy give up the one person she loves most in the world?
