FromNew York TimesandUSA Todaybestselling author Heather Graham, a wondrous Christmas story to be reread and cherished anew each year Jon and Julie Radcliff are facing the last Christmas of a marriage in trouble. The love they once shared has been tattered by time and torn apart by divergent goals. Their teenagers, Christie and Jordan, are rebellious, and their youngest child, six-year-old Ashley, is showing the hurt and confusion of her familys turmoil.Yet somehow the Christmas season must be gotten through, even if their holiday spirit is only pretend. The perfect place for this is the Oak River Plantation, where the Radcliffs are promised a traditional Christmas. So imagine their surprise when they are met by the quaint couple in charge, Jesse and Clarissa Wainscott, dressed in costumes dating from before the Civil War. Have they somehow entered a place that spans the gulf between past and present?Before Jon and Julie and their children can uncover the secrets surrounding their mysterious but marvelous hosts, they become aware of some profound truths about themselves.
Determined to rectify a disastrous mistake caused by one of his misdirected arrows, Eros, god of love, sets about trying to make the Marquess of Blytheland fall in love with intelligent, outspoken, but quite na�ve Cassandra Hathaway. A mythical cupid and a delightful younger sister (who deserves a story of her own) do their best to keep a wounded but resilient hero and a charmingly blunt heroine on the convoluted path to true love. This light Regency is peppered with witty dialog and humorous repartee. Harbaugh (The Reluctant Cavalier, Signet, 1996) lives in Auburn, Washington. (c) Copyright 2010.
