Mary Thompson has learned to cope with everyday loneliness, but Christmas is a different kind of challenge. Every carol reminds her that Christmas is a time for families to gather and for loved ones to exchange tokens of love. There must be something she can do to avoid another lonely Christmas.
Will Stewart knows little about loneliness. As a single father, he’s got his hands full with two children and his career as a contractor. A few moments of peace and quiet would be a welcome change, but he’s not likely to get them while he’s working on renovating a cottage for a new client. And of course, she wants it done in time for Christmas.
The story of how these two find each other amid the hustle and bustle of the busiest time of the year will warm your heart and renew your faith in love.
