Gib Douglas has been on the road a long time, with no place to really call home. When he pays a Christmas visit to relatives in Sweetgrass Springs, the last person he expects to encounter is the girl he loved with all his heart, the girl who'd promised to marry him and love him forever...until she betrayed him and married someone else. Dulcie Maguire gave up her dreams so that Gib could follow his all those years ago. She made a decent life for herself while watching him soar to success with great pride, never expecting to see him again. Now widowed, she's in dire straits with four children depending on her, when into her life walks Gib again - and she realizes that she's never gotten over him. But the man he's become is not the boy she once knew - and he may never forgive her, once he knows the secret she's been concealing.
This is an enchanting, heartwarming story. It will make you cry, laugh and cheer. It was much more than just a Christmas story, it was a true romance and lovely story about how special love can be, while having to deal with conceived betrayal, secrets, sacrifice and forgiveness. A story you can listen to anytime of the year. Gib is a swoon worthy hero that will melt your heart and make you want to take him in your arms for a big hug! Dulcie is sweet, caring and selfless, and her strength and deep love for Gib has you wanting to comfort her and want her to have her HEA. I really enjoyed this story and would recommend this book to anyone. It was also nice catching up on some of the other Sweetgrass Springs characters. Eric Dove has such a knack with voices and brings the story to life adding another level of enjoyment to the story.
