Description

Random circumstances brought them together. Love made them family.

When a terrible accident takes Madeline Kirby's husband and only child, the school guidance counselor is sure she can't go on. Left behind with nothing but her work and an empty heart, she vows to survive Christmas by reaching out to comfort someone else who knows similar pain.

Fostering four motherless children for the holidays is supposed to be temporary, but as Maddie tends to defensive Stevie, distrustful Jo, delicate Alissa, and frightened little Hailey, the ache in her own heart slowly becomes bearable. And before the season of giving comes to an end, it becomes clear that life intended for them to find each other.

Enjoy these soul sisters' first Christmas together in Christmas Sisters, a prologue novella - then catch up with each of them individually, fifteen years later.
