Publisher's Summary

The American Civil War has ended, but Alaina McKenna still awaits news about her husband, Braeden. Did he die in a Yankee prison? Was he buried in a shallow grave on a Virginia battlefield? Or has he turned his back on the specter of death and loss and sought solitude west of the Mississippi River, never to return home again?
As Christmas nears, Alaina deflects the advances of a suitor in the neighboring county, choosing to cling instead to hope and her belief that Braeden will return. As winter's chill settles upon her farm, Alaina cries out to God in one final Christmas prayer.

A Great Romance

This was an amazing story. I really liked the story and the characters. I liked Alaina's steadfastness to her husband. I liked how she talked to God about her decisions and learned to rely on him. The narrator captured the heart of the story and brought it to life. I was listening to this as I was driving. My brother wasn't able to sleep because he got caught up in the story as well. This is a short story, but I wish we could have had more time with these characters.
