Not only has Eliza’s fiancé, Weston Elliot, run away with someone else, but that someone else had been her best friend.

Now living in New York City, Eliza is building a new life. One without men or social gatherings. But that’s before she meets two young orphans who quickly steal her heart, before Weston Elliot makes a disturbing reappearance, and before Eliza finds herself fighting an attraction to another woman’s fiancé. Will Eliza discover a path of service that can keep her heart safe from the dangers of love, or will she find the courage to accept a surprising gift from God hidden between four pairs of little shoes and a bunch of mistletoe?
