Widowed Irishman, Brady McCormick made a promise to his
young wife the day she died--to bring their son to America
and begin a new life in the land of opportunity. Living in
charity with a distant uncle in New York, barely scraping
by, Brady is unsure he will be able to uphold the promise,
much less quell the loneliness, until an angel appears at
the docks, Saran Reichardt.
Headstrong and tenacious, gentlewoman Saran knows she's
unlike most women of society. Dedicated to teaching and
helping the impoverished, she has no need of a man to take
care of her, but an accidental encounter with a stormy-eyed
Irish immigrant and his young son changes her perception of
what need really is. Will this holiday give them both the
hope and faith they desire or will their own stubbornness
keep them apart?
