Albany, New York – 1880
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.
But her late husband has left her with a small bundled surprise; one she fears she may not be capable of taking care of herself. Her child is due around Christmastime, and instead of bringing only joy, he brings worry and heartache.
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.
But it isn’t with the rancher whom she is to marry; it is with his ranch hand who is nothing but kind to her and has the warmest smile she’s ever seen.
Is it possible that a Christmas miracle will arrive not only in the form of a bundle of joy, but in a second love?
