When Grandfather MacDonald predicts Lady Jane will marry the this year's First-Footer--the first guest into the house on Hogmanay—she dismisses the notion. Her childhood sweetheart is fighting on the Peninsula, and she can't imagine marrying anyone but the staid Major Barnett.
But when the clock strikes midnight, and Hogmanay begins, a knock at the front door changes Jane's life forever.
This was a really cute new year’s romance. It’s a short story of love at first sight.
