Librarian Catherine Tierney used to love the holidays: the lights, the carols, the nip in the air. But after her husband's death on Christmas Eve three years ago, the festivities seemed to start too early and last too long. Just before he died, Brian told his wife that he'd never leave her, that every Christmas he'd send Catherine a sign. On the quaint Chelsea street where she lives, Catherine will meet the tree seller from Novia Scotia. Both figured the world had forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. But they hadn't counted on finding each other, on fate, on second chances. . . and on a holiday gift of new love and new hope to last a lifetime.
What an amazing book! I read an excerpt of this in one of my women's magazines and immediately ran out and bought the book. It is such a sweet tale of a man who farms christmas trees and sells them in New York. Its a tale of how he tries to raise his two children by farming, all on his own, since his wife passed away. This is a very heartfelt story and the perfect one to read while curled up infront of the fire and christmas tree!!
