A Montana Millers prequel story featuring their parents, Reuben and Naomi
In the beginning, there was no Circle M ranch. Thirty years ago, there was only the girl next door and the boy who was too shy to tell her he loved her ...
December marks one of the hardest winters the Miller family has seen in the few years they’ve been ranching in Montana. But for Reuben, the middle son, there are blessings, too. His sister is marrying a good man and she’s chosen their neighbor and Reuben’s childhood friend Naomi Glick as a bridesmaid. Reuben has hopes of courting Naomi himself once he’s baptized. The problem is, Naomi’s distant cousin Roy, who has been working on the Glick place since spring, is also sweet on her. And his sister is convinced they will make a match.
When Naomi announces her plans to go along with Roy and the newlywed couple on their honeymoon visit to Lancaster County, Reuben realizes his time has run out. Showing Naomi he’s the right man for her will take all the courage and love in his heart—and maybe even a Christmas miracle.
