A young girl is born with a mysterious gift. An old man teaches her what it means to be gifted. Together they learn the reason we are here on earth is to discover and give our gifts. Everyone has a gift. CeeGee's Gift is a book to be read and shared by young and old.Set in a small island town on the Texas coastal bend, CeeGee's Gift takes readers to a simpler time, when neighbors sat on front porches, kids took off on bikes all day, and the library was the gathering place for all ages. Twelve-year-old Celia Gene Williamson and her friend, old Mr. Tindale, work together to transform her ability to foretell the future into a gift for others-a chance for the people of Southport to prepare for what is to come, or even change their direction and change the future.
