Summary
Christmas romances filled with the spirit of the Old West. It is hard for a woman to make a decent living in the Wild West of the late 1800s, and as the Christmas season approaches, prospects for a happy celebration seem dim. In 'A Pony Express Christmas' by Margaret Brownley, stranded alone in Nebraska Territory in 1882 with a broken wagon and two stubborn mules, Ellie-Mae Myers has no way to continue searching for her twin brother along the deserted Pony Express route or of returning home to Kentucky. Could a man on the verge of being hanged be the answer to her prayers? In 'A Wife in Name Only' by Rosey Dow, Katherine Priestly seeks a job to help support her mother and brother. A local ranch seeks a cook, but by 1884 standards, the owner, Brett Masten, will only hire a married woman to work among his men. Desperate, Catherine claims she is a married woman at the tender age of eighteen. Will her charade become a barrier to true love and send her home without enough money to buy Christmas presents? In 'Lucy Ames, Sharpshooter' by Darlene Franklin, Lucy Ames' dreams come true when her sharp shooting makes her the star act of Major Paulson's Wild West Show in 1891. Gordon Paulson is traveling with his parents for one last season before accepting a teaching position at West Texas Christian College. As Lucy's and Gordon's love for each other grows, will God weave their gifts and dreams into a single calling? In 'A Badlands Christmas' by Marcia Gruver, Noela Nancarrow and her pampered sister have been dragged into the Badlands by their adventurous father to live penniless in a sod house in 1885. When a local rancher invites Noela to a lavish Christmas party, will her holiday spirit return or will she learn a lesson far greater from the experience? In 'Unexpected Blessings' by Vickie McDonough, Anna Campbell sets out to deliver two small orphans to their uncle in Texas during December of 1880. Erik Olson knows it's impossible for those cute little pests to be his brother's and refuses to accept them--regardless of Anna's persistence. Little do they know that behind the scenes, Erik's Uncle Lars and his buddies are doing a little matchmaking, hoping to give the children a father and a mother. In 'A Grand County Christmas' by Debra Ullrick, In 1883, Awnya O'Crean is on the brink of starvation and homeless in the Colorado Mountains. When she goes hunting for food, God places her in the path of Amadeus Josef. Will Christmas with the Josef family teach Awnya how God works in mysterious ways?
