At the Valley View Motel, Lola Quinlan is up to her usual mischief. She's sent her family away for the holidays and invited a number of mystery guests to come and stay. But who are all these people, and why aren't they spending Christmas with their own loved ones?

As the big day draws closer, Lola discovers that at a special time of year, magic can happen in every family - especially your own.
Co-founded by Jane and Glenn McGrath, the McGrath Foundation raises money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and to increase breast awareness in young women.

The McGrath Foundation believes 150 of these specially trained nurses are needed to ensure that every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation. McGrath Breast Care Nurses offer a unique service to families who can self-refer to this free support.

By purchasing this special edition you are helping the McGrath Foundation realise their goal. To find out how you can make a difference visit www.mcgrathfoundation.com.au
