Desperate to escape her past, Miss Journey Smith heads deep into Montana Territory. Then a terrible accident strands her in the tiny town of Walten during the Christmas season. The townspeople welcome Journey into their hearts and homes, leading her to dream of a normal life, full of happiness, holidays--and the town's handsome parson.
Enchanted by the troubled beauty, Zane Thompson knows Journey is not what she seems. But she can't--or won't--trust him with her secrets, especially when her past reappears with a vengeance. Soon the parson must risk his life and his faith to offer Journey the greatest Christmas gift of all--his heart.
