Publisher's Summary

She wants forgiveness, he wants to protect his wife.

After years of hiding who and what she is, Constance Michaels must now face the bitter truth of her wrenched past and the knowledge one of her children wants nothing to do with her. She understands her daughter’s feelings. Thirteen years was a long time to be absent to just expect to walk back into a person’s life and pick up where she left off. There were mountains to climb and bridges to mend before she could possibly hope for forgiveness for the part she played.

Beg Wilson has worked hard to put together the broken pieces of his wife’s heart. The last thing he needs is Constance thinking she could come back into her daughter’s life and undo everything he’d worked so hard to achieve. He’s conflicted as to what would be best for all of them. He knew what it was like not to have a mother. How could he possibly deny his wife the chance to have her, regardless of the outcome?

Is it possible for Beg to use the spirit of Christmas to mend old wounds, build bridges, close the gap of time, and bring a mother and daughter together?

Sweet and Heartwarming!

This was a very sweet and heartwarming story of love, sacrifice and forgiveness. Constance Michaels receives a letter from her daughter Rachel informing her of the death of her other daughter. Unfortunately, Constance had to leave her daughters thirteen years ago to protect them and now Rachel wants nothing to do with her mother. Constance also has two sons who know nothing of her previous life. There are many decisions to be made, not only for Constance but also for Beg Wilson, Rachel’s husband. He would like to see his wife reunited with her mother however does not want to see her hurt. The author does a wonderful job of bringing it all together in the end. C. J. McAllister does an exceptional job with the narration, bringing the characters to life and making the listening experience enjoyable. This book was given to me for free and I provided this voluntary review.

Another great addition to the series

I liked getting to see Beg and Rachel again, this story helped to close the loop on Rachel's life. Some parts of it are difficult to listen to because it deals with domestic violence but overall the story was one of hope and reunion.

I felt that getting Constance's side of the story was important and I enjoyed getting to see events from another point of view.

It was lovely to listen to the narration which is very well done, the character voices are distinct and recognizable from earlier books.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Sweet Historical

The first few chapters were difficult to get through because there was so much background information necessary, but Constance remembering the past and then being in her present added additional difficulty in my opinion. I actually listened to the first 4 chapters twice.
I like the narrator's character voices, but his narrative parts were pretty boring. Like a monotone science teacher. He has such a deep voice I didn't think I'd like his female voices, but I loved them.
Once I got into the story, it was quite creative. I don't understand the daughter's husband's job though. He sounds almost like a hit man. There were many laugh out loud parts, especially in the end.

Fantastic

A great book that has some twists that I was not expecting. Nicely written. Listened to these out of order, but it didn't ruin anything.

Forgiveness and Healing

I have enjoyed each of Sandra Sinclair's books in this series. In this book we meet Constance who abandoned her two daughters 13 years ago. Now she has learned that her oldest daughter has died and Rachel, her youngest daughter is living nearby with her new husband. We learn more of what happened in the past that led Constance to leave her family and we find that she did the right thing for her family and for herself. Now she wants to make amends. Except Rachel feels like her mother has abandoned her and wants nothing to do with her.
A truly sweet and enjoyable book that reminds you of the importance of family and forgiveness made all the more enjoyable by the excellent narration by C.J. McAllister.

A Mother's Decision

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for an honest review.
Constance Michaels makes an impossible decision to change her life and the lives of her daughters. Her plans change their lives forever but she gains a new family in the process. Although her life struggles are unbelievable it ends up in a relatively happy ending. The narrator was really good and brought a lot to this short story.

I know this is fiction, but it’s too unrealistic!

13 years ago constant clutter life which included her husband and two children. After being beat by her husband she fleas and becomes a mail order bride despite the fact she is still married. It is 13 years later and my daughter is dead due to being forced to work in the saloon and the other also became a mail order bride but only after years of being a Bewes by her father her youngest daughter Rachel has written her to let her know Marybeth is dead, but constant want to do use this opportunity to reunite with her daughter, but first she hast to tell her two sons that they have sisters.

OK, first of all I have no respect for any woman who would abandon her children with an abusive man come suck in the ball she said her daughter Mary Beth at The time constants claims Mary Beth at the age of seven begged her to leave the Daddy, now the only way this would be true is it the seven-year-old thought she too was going to leave with the mother. Even kids who are abuse don’t want to be separated from their parents so why would this girl who has a “loving“ mother and an abusive father want the mother to leave while her and her baby sister stays with the abusive daddy that makes no sense. It isn’t even in the most unselfish child psyche most mothers would rather die then leave the children in an abusive situation, but not constant drip flood and never thought twice about him. Oh yes she got updates from a friend but that’s the extent of it. Throughout the book they talk as it consist as a loving mother but all that running through my head but you love your kids with the abuser. I mean let’s think about the fact the one thing she knew is when he got drunk or angry or drunk and angry he liked To hit. So if she was gone who was left to hit… Her little girls who she claims to love. I have heard women in real life so they left the children with their husband because he was abusive and they always say oh but he would never hit the children, but I’m sure when they married him they didn’t think he would be hitting them either. To me this is all just lame excuses for a woman who didn’t want to be a mother because any real mother would never leave their children. I couldn’t even finish the book it’s ridiculous and when she said seven year old Mary Beth told her to go I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish. Are usually love Miss Sinclair‘s books but this one I don’t at all.

Family matters are always complicated

A daughter that believed she had been abandoned, now approached by the very person she blamed for her feelings.
The husband, who loved and cherished his new wife, didn't want to do anything to cause a rift in that relationship, but needing to understand what had caused his wife's feelings of abandonment from her parent, as well as, finding out the other side of the story.
It could all come asunder, but hopefully Christmas magic may spread goodwill and cheer to these estranged relationships.
Yes, yet another great story from this Author.

Can She Pick Up Where She Left?


The book centers around the female lead, Constance.

This was a well developed story line that focuses on Constance, her

struggles, and what she had to do to survive.

Overall, an engaging read about Loss, Hope, Redemtopin, and Forgiveness.

C.J. McAllister did well with the narration as well.

Another beautiful story!

I have enjoyed listening to this series! The books are sweet, clean western romance with some suspense thrown in to keep you reading or listening. The main characters are very likeable and it was entertaining to join with them as they move through life. I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed to listen to on Audible. This review is my own honest opinion
