A novel by Lindsay Longford
Rita Awards Best Novel
After a tough year, Annie Conroy had hoped the holidays would mark a new start. Now she and her children were stranded in Florida's backwoods, and Annie was totally lost. Then the blinking neon sign penetrated the fog .... The Star Inn roadhouse was shabby and uninviting, but to Annie, it was a godsend. Though the owner, Ben Jackson, was hardly in a festive mood, Annie wouldn't let him spoil their Christmas. Ben had stopped celebrating the season years ago, and even sweet Annie and her children couldn't change that. But deep in his frozen heart, long-forgotten feelings were stirring--such as joy ...and goodwill ...and maybe even a flicker of love ....
