A soldier running from his past. A baker creating her future. Will Christmas give them the gift of forgiveness and love?
Looking for a new beginning after Confederates killed her family, Alicia Price opens Sugarplums Bakery in the quaint town of Saint Charles, Missouri. Overwhelmed by her success and large volume of Christmas orders, she surprises herself by accepting help from an unlikely source--a vagabond who arrived in town the month before.
Since leaving the Confederate army after the war, Gideon Sinclair has restlessly moved from town to town, always on the lookout for peace and a place to settle down. Maybe, just maybe, he has found both when he agrees to work for the feisty, redhead who owns the local bakery.
Yet, just when he thinks his life is turning around, Gideon is arrested on Christmas Eve for crimes he did not commit. Will Alicia be able to look beyond his past and give him the holiday miracle he so desperately yearns for?
