Calico Christmas at Dry Creek & Redeeming Gabriel: An Anthology
Authors: White, Elizabeth & Tronstad, Janet
Synopsis: Finding purpose…together
Calico Christmas at Dry Creek
When influenza claims her husband and baby, Elizabeth O’Brian doesn’t know if she can go on. Then Jake Hargrove approaches her with a plea she can’t ignore. He’s been left in charge of his two nieces, and the baby desperately needs Elizabeth’s help to survive the harsh winter. A marriage of convenience seems the only answer. With a new purpose in life, dare Elizabeth hope for the gift of love this Christmas?
Spying for the Union army has taken a heavy toll on Gabriel Laniere. Though the cause is noble, he can never risk getting close to anyone—not even God. Yet Camilla Beaumont, daughter of the Confederacy, might be the exception. Camilla has a secret that rivals Gabriel’s—she works for the Underground Railroad. When the two forge an unlikely partnership, it could be the key Gabriel seeks to a truth larger than any conflict—love.
