I had read Sharlene Maclaren’s Little Hickman Creek series a few years ago, so it was nice to go back and visit again. This was a novella that takes place during the month of December and tells the story of a young widow, Sadie Bennett, who had lost her husband two years prior. She has closed her heart off and has just been living an existence that just gets her by. She more or less was becoming a recluse. However, the handsome livery owner Reed Harris has set his sights on her and with the help of her family and town, he intends to open her heart again. This was a sweet little story about a woman learning to let go of fear and to love again. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
