In this Christmas story set in beloved Sweetgrass Springs, two young lovers torn apart years before come face to face unexpectedly in this emotional reunion romance by New York Times and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear…
Gib Douglas has been on the road a long time, with no place to really call home. When he pays a Christmas visit to relatives in Sweetgrass Springs, the last person he expects to encounter is the girl he loved with all his heart, the girl who’d promised to marry him and love him forever…until she betrayed him and married someone else.
Dulcie Maguire gave up her dreams so that Gib could follow his all those years ago. She made a decent life for herself while watching him soar to success with great pride, never expecting to see him again. Now widowed, she's in dire straits with four children depending on her, when into her life walks Gib again—and she realizes that she’s never gotten over him.
But the man he’s become is not the boy she once knew—and he may never forgive her, once he knows the secret she’s been concealing.
