Every first of December, Christopher Byrne travels from his Nova Scotia farm to Manhattan to sell his Christmas trees. But this year there'd be no cheer for the widower and his twelve-year-old daughter, Bridget. For New York City had taken Christy's only son, headstrong sixteen-year-old Danny, who'd run off without a trace. . . . Librarian Catherine Tierney used to love the holidays. But after her husband died on Christmas Eve three years ago, the festivities seem to start too early and last too long. On her quaint Chelsea street, Catherine and the tree seller from Nova Scotia will meet . . . and find a holiday gift of new love and new hope to last a lifetime.
