Nature, though, has other plans for the returning serviceman this snow-filled Christmas. Needing to find shelter, he spots the glow of lights from a small farmhouse and seeks sanctuary from those within. But then, the worn door opens, and…

The slim fingers of Dortha Hudson’s right hand twist the gold band around the ring finger on her left one, as she ponders the decision she must now make. The past four years have been hard ones. Does that mean she should settle for an easy way out, or should she hope for a Christmas miracle?

So begins this latest offering from internationally beloved, From Women’s Pens author Annie Acorn. Set in rural, post-World War II Indiana, her new novella draws on memories of childhood Christmases as she recounts the story of characters destined to delight her eager readership.
