Synopsis: Her Fresh Start Cost Her Everything
The Montana territory was supposed to be the land of dreams for Elizabeth O'Brian. But when influenza claims her husband and baby, Elizabeth doesn't know if she can go on. Then a stranger approaches her with a plea she can't ignore.
Jake Hargrove is desperate. His brother's death left him in charge of his two part-Sioux niecesone an infant. Jake knows the baby can't survive the harsh Western winter without a wet nurse. A marriage of convenience with this grieving mother seems to be the only answer. Fighting for the acceptance of their charges gives Jake and Elizabeth new purpose. With the Christmas season approaching, dare they hope that they could also receive the gift of love?
