Christmas Eve, 1894.
All Margaret Campbell wants for Christmas is a safe journey home. When her plans for a festive holiday with her family in Stirling crumble under the weight of her brother’s bitterness, the young schoolteacher wants nothing more than to return to the students she loves and the town home she cherishes.
Then an unexpected detour places her in the path of Gordon Shaw, a handsome newspaperman, who struggles under a burden of remorse and shame.
When the secret of their shared history is revealed, will it leave them tangled in a knot of regret? Or might their past hold the threads that will bind their future together?
