Twenty-year-old Levi Harper needs help. Life was difficult enough after his father and brother died in a mine cave-in but when pneumonia takes his mother, Levi can barely manage the mine and his four younger brothers and sisters. He signs up for a mail-order-bride from Maine.
Virginia Pepper is determined to escape her father’s unrelenting anger and all-too-ready fists. She’ll do anything to get away…even agree to marry what she believes is an ugly, old widower with four children. But she has no intention of trading one abusive man for another. Paper marriage or not, she’ll be on her way first chance she gets.
As Christmas approaches, Levi counts down the days of his mother’s favorite season of Advent with a waiting, hopeful spirit. Can the Christmas season create a path for Levi into Virginia’s heart?
