Confederate officer Craig Langston is a man on a mission. One year prior, he marched out with his regiment and foolishly promised his wife that he'd be home in time for Christmas. Now he'll move heaven and earth to return home, thinking of nothing but holding her in his arms and trying to salvage his marriage. Heaven, however, doesn't seem to be on his side, and a variable wave of disaster follows in his wake.
Thwarted at every possible turn, can Craig and Marissa weather a storm of unsuspected wartime tribulations, and discover the true spirit of Christmas? Or is a day of peace on earth too much to hope for?

A confederate officer is on the way home from war to see his wife and spend Christmas with her. He hasn't seen her in over a year and he has never see his son. Unfortunately he runs into 3 Union soldiers and everything gets very tense. One of the soldiers had a bullet in his leg and he is very ill with the infection of it. Another of the soldiers is very nervous and threatens the Confederate soldier who happens to be a Doctor. The Dr thinking he is going to get shot lunges forward at the gun to change the direction of it so he won't get hit and he manages to save himself. The other 2 Union officers threaten the third and take his rifle away from him. They ask the Doctor to treat their friend and take the bullet out of his leg. The Doctor, Craig, does that and then tells the Union soldiers how to meet back up with their units. Craig gets home to find that his younger brother had also just arrived home for the holidays. But shortly after that the three union soldiers show up at the house and the fun really begins. I liked all the characters and the plot is an interesting one with plenty of action. I recommend this well written short story to anyone who enjoys historical romance.
