In 1933 penniless widow Jessica Ashmore accompanied by her six year old daughter Emma moves from Baltimore to Grand View, Colorado where she has obtained work as a caretaker to stroke victim Abby MacKay. Jessica and Emma move into Abby¿s home, the Culdee Creek Ranch. The mom hopes for a real holiday season for her daughter on this ranch east of Colorado Springs.----------------- However, Jessica is stunned when she meets her employer¿s acrimonious adult son, Sean. He seems angry at the world and at times takes it out on Jessica. Still they work as a team trying to do what is best for his mom while falling in love. However, they have no future unless Sean can overcome the demons that haunt him Jessica believes God can help guide him, but Sean¿s anguish keeps him blind.-------------- ONE PERFECT GIFT is a terific Depression Era romance starring two people who have reacted to personal traumas differently. Whereas Sean is filled with anger, Jessica is filled with God and love for her child. Fans will appreciate this Colorado historical tale of redemption if Sean will only reach out for it.--------------- Harriet Klausner

The story alone was good. Although they race through the book and do not develop the characters as they change. One meaningful talk with another character and then suddenly they are a more developed character a few weeks later. Rushing to Thanksgiving and then Christmas without letting you enjoy the characters during this time. From Sean and Jessie hating each other to friends and courting in only a few pages. While again there was meaningful conversations and good morals to live by there was a lot of gaps in the story from where the characters went from point A to B without seeing that development in the story line.Was this review helpful?
