It's Christmastime in 1890s Meadowmead, and someone is venturing out at night to leave packages at the homes of the needy. Dubbed "The Yuletide Angel," no one knows the identity of this mysterious benefactor.
No one, except Hugh Barnes, a confirmed bachelor who finds himself drawn to the outwardly shy but inwardly bold Violet Madison, a young woman who risks her safety to help others.
When Violet confesses her fear of eviction from her childhood home, Hugh longs to rescue her. His good intentions are thwarted, however, when Hugh's estranged brother shows up in town ... and in Violet's company.
But Violet faces an even bigger threat. A phantom figure lurks in the shadows, prepared to clip the wings of The Yuletide Angel.
A gentle Christmas story that transported me back in time

Raised to believe herself plain, Violet has little confidence in herself. People do praise her baking. She dreams of owning a bakery yet women don’t own businesses in Meadowmead, despite it being the 1890s.
She also dreams of changing Hugh’s mind about remaining a bachelor.
This book captured my attention from the first page. It’s a gentle story set during the Christmas season. It transported me back in time. I loved it.
This is exactly the kind of story I love to read during the Christmas holidays. I will look for more novels by this author!
