It is 1876 and Anna Jarvis is a twelve-year-old girl living among the hills of West Virginia in the village of Grafton. As she attends church with her family and goes about her daily life, Anna has no idea she will soon change a nation and influence the world.

When Anna’s mother dies before her dream to create a special day for all mothers is fulfilled, her daughter embarks on a special journey fueled by love and devotion to pick up the pieces to honor her memory and monumental wish. As she leads others down a fascinating path into the past to unveil scientific discoveries, gripping Civil War reunions, and thousands of letters, Anna provides a poignant glimpse into how her determined journey eventually prompted the residents of over fifty countries to mark their calendars and send cards home to honor the mothers in their lives.

In this historical tale Ann Marie Jarvis wishes for a day to celebrate mothers. Years later, Anna Jarvis, her daughter, fulfills her mother’s dream by establishing Mother’s Day.
