About the book:
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 city.
As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?

My thoughts:If you are looking for a good, clean, heart-warming story to read for the holidays, this is it! While Frannie and Charlie are from completely different backgrounds, they're both relying on their faith to help shape their futures. Despite their differences, they find themselves instantly connecting and falling in love. I loved Frannie's devotion to her faith and family and how she comes to truly appreciate her legacy, the family farm. And, I had to laugh at Charlie at times, as he enters a brand new environment and tries to make a go at being a farmer. With themes of faith, family, love, and even civil rights, this story is a quick read with a great message.
