Christmas Roses by Amanda Cabot

Christmas Roses by Amanda Cabot has got to be one of the sweetest stories I've ever read. This little novella takes the reader back to the second half of the nineteenth century to a little town in Wyoming where we find recently widowed and young mother, Celia Anderson. Celia runs a struggling boardinghouse and is hoping just to make ends meet, while several of the men in town are waiting for her year of mourning to be over so they can make their intentions known. Celia, however, hasn't given remarriage a second thought. 
Along comes Mark, a troubled man traveling the west searching for his father. Mark rents a room at the boardinghouse and soon gains work as a carpenter in the town of 150. Mark is running from the hurts of his past and makes it known that he's leaving as soon as spring arrives.
Christmas miracles abound in this story and it will leave you warm inside. 

Christmas Roses
By Amanda Cabot
Amanda Cabot invites readers to cozy up with a romantic, heartwarming tale of the greatest gift of all--love.
Celia Anderson doesn't need anything for Christmas except a few more boarders, which are hard to come by in this small mining town. She certainly doesn't have a husband on her Christmas wish list. But when a wandering carpenter finds lodging at her boarding house, she admits that she might remarry if she found the right man--the kind of man who would bring her roses for Christmas. It would take a miracle to get roses during a harsh Wyoming winter. But Christmas, after all, is the time for miracles . . .
