The ghost of Christmas past may be the perfect nudge into the future…

Lillian Langston is almost ready to throw in the towel when her husband, U.S. Marshal David Langston, rides out after the deadly Foster Gang mere days before Christmas. A former soldier and renowned lawman, Davy has not adjusted well to married life. Instead he is rarely home, and all too frequently he slips into the overbearing, overprotective tendencies that almost prevented her from marrying him in the first place. Hoping to rekindle the passions that had drawn them together, Lilly had planned the perfect Christmas. Now it seemed Christmas would be yet another night spent at home… alone.

When word reaches Lilly that Davy had been ambushed and killed by the murderous Foster Gang she is completely devastated. However, when a mysterious visitor gives her reason to hope for the impossible, she takes charge of her own destiny and embarks on an adventure that will take her on a journey of faith and Christmas hope.

Will Lilly save her husband, salvage her ailing marriage, and maybe… just maybe learn what truly makes a perfect Christmas? Or will sinister outlaws cut short her happiness before it ever has the chance to begin?

The author should write about Jacob. David and lillian's story is over.
