Christmas on the Prairie
Barbour Publishing, Incorporated, Sep 1, 2004 - Christmas stories - 346 pages
Christmas on the vast American plains holds little appeal for four women struggling to find a warm place to belong. Estelle is paralzed by grief over a fallen soldier and balks at holiday preparations - Kathleen thinks she made a mistake accepting a teaching position away from home - Ivy abhors the Nebraska town she and family now call home and longs to flee back to East, to the security of the familiar - Lucinda mourns the loss of her home to the great Chicago fire and her reputation to lies. The holidays aren't going as planned for any of these four women. Can they each take a moment to discover the blessing of Christmas romance? Let these four tales of frozen hearts warming up to holiday love give you the gifts of inspiration and joy this Christmas.
