Finding purpose.together Calico Christmas at Dry Creek When influenza claims her husband and baby, Elizabeth O'Brian doesn't know if she can go on. Then Jake Hargrove approaches her with a plea she can't ignore. He's been left in charge of his two nieces, and the baby desperately needs Elizabeth's help to survive the harsh winter. A marriage of convenience seems the only answer. With a new purpose in life, dare Elizabeth hope for the gift of love this Christmas? Redeeming Gabriel Spying for the Union army has taken a heavy toll on Gabriel Laniere. Though the cause is noble, he can never risk getting close to anyone-not even God. Yet Camilla Beaumont, daughter of the Confederacy, might be the exception. Camilla has a secret that rivals Gabriel's-she works for the Underground Railroad. When the two forge an unlikely partnership, it could be the key Gabriel seeks to a truth larger than any conflict-love.
