CHRISTMAS AT CANDLEBARK FARM
CHRISTMAS AT CANDLEBARK FARM (4) by Michelle Douglas: Keira Keely prepares for her new life with her baby by selling off an inheritance from a great-aunt. That means a short stay at Candlebark Farm, where she expects country hospitality but instead gets gruff farmer and widower Luke Hillier and his silent son. Keira wants to help the two find happiness. Then the worst happens and Keira miscarries. With the Hilliers’ help, Keira carries on, but Luke can’t move beyond his own guilt over his wife’s death. The emotional depth of the characters is gripping, if the story is a bit predictable in places.
