What would you do to protect your family?
Where Libby and Owen are concerned they’d both do anything. The only thing is, sometimes what you think is the right thing, is the one thing that can cause the greatest pain.
I loved these characters. All the characters you meet in this book you can connect with. Each has a story, a past that drives them and brought them to the here and now. You can’t help routing for Libby and Owen and hoping that they realize before they hurt each other, that what they think is the best all round, might not be the case. I definitely recommend this beautiful story.
At least it's supposed to be. For Libby Leeds, however, the holiday season is just another reminder of things she'd rather forget. When she left Sanctuary Island as an orphaned child, she never thought she'd go back except in her dreams, dreams she's kept alive by writing monthly column of her fictional small-town life, until her publisher sends her back home for the holidays.
Owen Shepard is a fallen hero, wounded in action rescuing three of his fellow soldiers, but after a whirlwind of media attention, all this charismatic Army Ranger wants is to get back on his feet and make it to Sanctuary Island to be with his daughter in time for Christmas. What he didn't expect was to be put on a crash course with a columnist hiding her past. Will the magic of Sanctuary Island at Christmastime allow them to find healing together?
