"A Merry Little Christmas" by Anita Higman

Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds. Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the big city. A dream...

Franny is a wonderful honest young woman who stayed on the farm after her parents died suddenly and comes to love the animals so much that she talked to them-even sang to them. She danced through her chores each day and before she knew it many years had slipped away...

Charles Landau came from a prominent wealthy family where he grew up with nannys and schools for boys after his mother died early in life. His father just never seemed able to show fact he was a strict man wanting his sons to live their lives HIS way, causing much problems in the lives of the boys.

Charlie's dream is to be a farmer and one day he comes to Oklahoma and buys the farm from Franny making her dream come true to move to the city. She agrees to stay a short while and teach Charlie how to be a farmer and it is in this time two lives collide and Love just might get a toe-hold between these two who so desperately need someone to love them...I enjoyed the honesty of these two characters and the simplicity of the book.
Come read a wonderful Christmas story of Hope-forgivness and Love mixed in with a little manure under the fingernails....
