As Pure as Untouched Snow
Ana Belmonte has fallen in love with Jared O'Hare, a boy she knows she can never have unless she musters the courage to overcome the only obstacle standing in her way. She has already failed and ran away from him once, leaving behind not one, but two shattered hearts.
"It's okay," and "I'll find someone better," are two lies she always tells herself in order to ease the pain and after a while she, too, starts to believe in them.
Just when Ana thinks she has moved on, Jared returns home for the holidays and all of the effort she has put into forgetting about him ends in vain as she finds herself falling for him all over again. Will Ana be able to experience what true happiness feels like this Christmas, or will she allow her fear to triumph the love she harbors for Jared as it has done in the past?
