Beatrice’s Christmas Blessing:
Pregnant Beatrice Miller’s world comes crashing down when her husband dies suddenly from a terrible accident. Her life has shifted without notice, and she must deal with not only grief, but the worry of being a burden on her late husband’s already poverty-stricken family.
In a desperate attempt to find stability for herself and her child, Beatrice answers an ad from a rancher seeking of a marriage of convenience. Certain she could never love again, she makes the long trip to Wyoming and is shocked when she begins to feel an immediate connection.
Is it possible that a Christmas miracle will arrive not only in the form of a bundle of joy, but in a second love?
Millie’s Christmas Surprise:
Millie Saxton has plans to meet up with James O’Neill who placed an advertisement looking for a bride in the newspaper. But when her train stops in Ogden, Utah and a nasty winter storm hits, Millie finds that her future as Mr. O’Neill’s bride might not be what she wants after all.
Before long, a blacksmith by the name of Clyde Roberts hammers his way into Millie Saxton’s life and refuses to leave. What started out as a chance meeting on the main street of Ogden becomes something far more noteworthy for Millie.
Will she be forced to continue westward and keep her word to James, or can this handsome metalworker unlock her heart and let her dreams come alive?
Amelia’s Blessed Christmas:
A recent widow, young Amelia Hawkins leaves behind her life of bereavement and bad memories to travel west to live with Mr. Percy Andrews, a friendly and caring general store owner who is well-liked by everyone in the town of Ogden. From their very first meeting at the railway station, she is taken by his kindness and gentle nature and knows that God has blessed her with a second chance at happiness.
That calm and peaceful feeling doesn’t last very long, as the horrors of her past begin to creep back into her life in the form of bad dreams. Her fears and anxieties begin to consume her and Amelia begins to doubt herself and, in turn, begins to doubt her future with Mr. Andrews.
Will Amelia become consumed by the memories of the past? Or will Percy’s tender warmth and kindness be enough to calm the fears that have been haunting her once and for all?
A Christmas Mail Order Bride For Samson:
Samson Delaney, a handsome, hard-working lumber mill owner in Missoula Mills, Montana, has grown lonely and longs for a wife to spend his life with. His good friends had been fortunate enough to find their brides through newspaper advertisements, so he decides to ask one of these wives, Mrs. Virginia Monroe, to help him write an advertisement of his own.
Before long, he is receiving letters from women all over the east coast. None impress him as much as the first letter he receives from a young lady by the name of Miss Tabitha McGregor, a lovely former librarian who works at a book shop in New York. The pair exchange letters until, at last, she arrives to be with him.
With Christmas coming soon, Samson decides to mark the occasion by proposing to Tabitha, with the intent to marry her on Christmas morning. Tabitha, on the other hand, begins to start having second thoughts about marrying a man she has only just met.
Will Samson have a bride for the holidays, or will he be left brokenhearted underneath the mistletoe?
