Sarah Jane Jefferson never felt like she was important to anyone. Just one of the fifteen orphaned girls Edna Petunia Sanders adopted, she spent her days working in an orphanage. She had no real talent other than cooking, but she knew how to love. Needing someone to play Santa Claus for the orphans’ Christmas party, she approached the handsome young pastor, Micah Barton, the new man in town.
Micah Barton had his eye on one of the orphans the Sanders had adopted, and when she approached him to help her at the Christmas party, he couldn’t refuse. When a little girl captured his heart at the party, and he needed a wife to help him raise her, he knew what he had to do. They could parent the little girl together easily, but could they live as husband and wife as effortlessly? Or were they destined to be in a loveless marriage for the rest of their lives?
