Cabot writes a beautiful love story with a little mystery, the magic of Christmas and the hope of a miracle. The humble characters are trying to carve a life for themselves and those they love in the 1800s.
Wyoming Territory, 1882: Celia Anderson needs a miracle, not presents, for Christmas. If she does not get more boarders she will have to close her boardinghouse. In her small mining town, they’re hard to come by. Mark Williams, a carpenter and a wanderer, stays at Celia’s. Soon he’s hoping to give her a miracle for Christmas, finding and giving her Christmas roses. (REVELL, Sep., 176 pp., $14.99)
