Becoming a parent has never crossed Faith Rawlings’ mind. Navigating life with a single arm has kept her focus on more pressing matters. But when the nephew she never knew existed loses his only parent, she steps up to be his guardian.
The role entails a temporary move to a community for the deaf. Learning ASL online to better communicate with her nephew proves to be fruitless, so she hires a teacher. When Faith meets the attractive Julia, she dreams of a future she never thought she could have.
Faith settles into her new life with determination and heart. But if the out-of-reach primary guardian listed on the will of her nephew’s late mother seeks custody, she could lose the family she’s built.
After the events of the summer, Katherine and Anna are looking forward to spending a quiet, cosy Christmas together before hosting a New Year’s Eve party at Nunswick Abbey.
When a romantic weekend away for Anna’s birthday doesn’t go to plan, it proves to be the beginning of their Christmas woes, and as workplace pleasantries grow too friendly, a cloud of jealousy and suspicion forms.
As Anna plans the most important party of her career, can she convince Katherine their co-worker has more than pub lunches on the brain? Can Katherine keep her composure as the tension rises at Abbey House?
As they count down to the New Year, will Anna and Katherine’s relationship survive the calamitous Christmas season?
