Naomi was lost. She was practically alone. She’d suffered for months since the fire took her family from her on Christmas Eve. Guilt and remorse were terrible companions.

Then came the day when she knew she had to move forward. God had spared her for a reason. It was up to her to find her purpose and live God’s plan for her life. She took a drastic step and went west to Wyoming to marry a rancher who was looking for a wife.

When she arrives in Cheyenne just a few days before Christmas, she finds a man who was polite, but remote. She understood him perfectly when he told her was looking for a wife as basically a business partner. He didn’t want love or romance. Nor did he want the muss and fuss of holiday celebrations.

She realized that she wasn’t willing to settle for a loveless marriage or a Christmas season with no celebration. She was afraid she’d decided these things too late. She was already in Cheyenne.

What can she do now? Accept her fate? Take what she can get?

Naomi decides she won’t be just as alone in a marriage in Cheyenne as she was in Boston with no friends and a few family members. Find out how the Christmas gift she gives to Jackson softens him and changes him. God works in mysterious ways – especially at Christmas!

Annie Boone writes clean, Christian romance. This Christmas story, The Christmas Gift is a sweet love story to celebrate the most magical of the seasons.
