A Christmas Surprise

A woman whose husband was a scoundrel gets a great gift for Christmas after his death. She and her children are barely getting by working for a rancher after her husband who is a soldier dies. A man who had been trying to help her at the fort stops by for Christmas eve to drop off some gifts. It turns out to be the best Christmas they have ever had. A sweet feel good story that made me smile.

Well researched story not just for the holidays.

Thoroughly researched, this story. will satisfy the history buff as well as readers of frontier Romance. The novella length packed a full story in a small package.
