Just as a hard winter offers the promise of renewal in the spring, the MAGIC OF WINTER is a beautiful reminder that letting go of the past can allow the future to bloom its brightest. Award-winning author Martina Boone spins a heartwarming modern love story about loss and hope, fathers and daughters, small towns and big ambitions.
Cait Fletcher was always second-string in her father's eyes, unable to compete with her perfect older brother. Her father's view of Cait only deteriorated further when she fell for the local "bad boy" at the age of nine, and her belief in Brice MacLaren never once wavered until the day he betrayed her a few months before their wedding. With their tiny glen too full of opinionated neighbors, wandering sheep, ancient grudges, and countless old traditions to let her escape either her past or her mistakes, she moved away--until her father's unexpected illness gave her no choice but to return.
Home again, Cait still loves the village of Balwhither as much as she hates it, and she despises the fact that winter celebrations in the village make avoiding Brice impossible. But when she discovers that her father has given up not only on the family-run Library and Tea Room but also on treatment for his cancer, she must put her own emotions and hurts aside. Brice claims he's changed, and he's certainly been good to her father since she left. Now can they find a way to work together as she follows the example of countless unsung heroes--the women of the Highlands--and fights to save the family business and give her father something meaningful to live for?
A warm, timeless story of love, redemption, and magical traditions of hope that will charm new readers and fans of the Celtic Legends Collection alike. Perfect for those who love Nora Roberts, Susan Mallery, Susan Wiggs, Sarah Addison Allen, Lauren K. Denton, and Kathryn Hughes.
