This is another of the 12 Brides of Christmas series.  It was a really fun read.  I really love the pioneering time period in history when people were starting to make their ways west and settle new areas.  It's probably my favorite.  This story takes place in Wyoming at the Winfield stage coach stop.  Polly Winfield and her family run a stage coach stop preparing the guests and workers, meals, shelter and the needs that they can continue their journeys.  Polly is 18 and one of the drivers, Jacob has gotten to know her.  Being that she has been away from all the comforts of home for quite a while, she finds herself missing the beautiful Christmas trees that she would enjoy each Christmas season. This year it appears that there won't be a Christmas tree.  Polly asks her father if she could enlist one of the stage drivers to hunt for a suitable tree.  Her father agrees and Polly asks Jacob to see if he can find her one.  Christmas draws closer but so far he was unable to find one. The stage is very late and causes Polly's father to be very concerned because of the very snowstorm and he decides to set out to see if he can locate them and help them.  Polly asks to go along and brings some food and medical supplies in case they are needed. After struggling to find their way, they come across Jacob and the wagon which is no longer able to continue.  Polly and her father struggle to keep the injured passengers warm and the fire that Jacob started needs more wood to keep it going.  They must use some parts of the wagon and this is when Polly sees a little Christmas tree that Jacob has brought.  This is a very touching and sweet story of trials of this time period and the strong men and women of this era.  I highly recommend this story to give you that wonderful warm holiday spirit! I received an ebook copy of this story from the publisher for my honest review, which I have given.

This was a smooth ride.  I loved  that  polly(same last name as me)  can get Jacob to find her a Christmas tree in an area where there are few trees.  Even the thought of a tree makes her want to stay in the area that she now lives.  Great novella.  Received an ebook copy from Barbour publishing for a fair and honest opinion.

A great short story on how God has a special person that He made just for us.  There are some things inside us that only one person will appreciate.  This story was based in Wyoming in 1867.  Polly Winfield lives in a house that is a stop along the Oregon Trail.  Since her family moved there Polly enjoys helping her parents take care of the weary travelers as they stop to eat one of her mom’s delicious dinners.  Polly doesn’t get to know many people since they are only there for a short time.  But Jacob Tierney a driver for the line, stays at their house a few days a week, and has caught her eye.  Jacob actually has manners unlike many of the men who stay at their house.  Can they make it work?  Winter is coming and so is a fierce storm, to find out what happens you’ve got to read this book!  I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest opinion, all opinions expressed are my own.

This is a heart-warming story set in the untamed wilds of Wyoming.  A bit of humor and fun-loving banter between Polly and her family and the characters of the stage.  Written perfectly as to make you see the scene and feel the feelings.  A snowstorm brings the danger and trial for the family. Will stage driver Jacob be able to stay with Polly or will she be left alone to keep caring for the stage passengers? All Polly wants for Christmas is a tree – a reminder of her wonderful family holidays back East. Her family tells her it’s impossible. You will have to read this to find out if she gets her wish and who might be able to do it! I loved this tale of caring at Christmas time and sharing with others.  I received this book for an honest review.
