Maggie, the farmer's youngest daughter, loves getting gifts, especially mysterious ones. One wintry day, she receives a package in the mail. She excitedly opens the package to find a bulb buried in a crate of dirt. This was not what Maggie expected. She had hoped for a doll or a game, not a bulb that would one day become a plant.

Bestselling author Liz Curtis Higgs shares a joyful Easter story about grace, forgiveness, and the true meaning of Easter.

Maggie, the farmer’s daughter, can’t wait to unwrap her gift that arrived in the mail. But her delight turns to disappointment when she doesn’t receive a toy or a doll or a game. Instead, she’s gifted a plant bulb. After forgetting to water the plant, Maggie gets frustrated and tosses the bulb outside—where something amazing happens on Easter morning!
