A Family Made at Christmas
After taking guardianship of his late friend’s siblings and baby daughter, minister Levi Wallin hopes to atone for his troubled past on the gold fields. But it won’t be easy to convince the children’s wary elder sister to trust him. The more he learns about her, though, the more he believes Callie Murphy’s prickly manner masks a vulnerable heart…one he’s starting to wish he was worthy of.
Every man in Callie’s life chose chasing gold over responsibilities. Levi—and the large, loving Wallin family—might just be different. But she can tell he’s hiding something from her, and she refuses to risk her heart with secrets between them. Even as they grow closer, will their pasts keep them from claiming this unexpected new beginning?
Hott Review of His Frontier Christmas Family:
Forgiveness is a funny thing. We ask God for forgiveness but then work hard to atone for the sins He’s already forgiven us for… does that even make sense? Not when you see it from the outside, but it certainly feels like the right thing when you know you’ve been wrong.
Boy, could I identify with Levi. He felt that he wasn’t worthy of anything good because of the things he’d done. He couldn’t forigve himself and couldn’t move past the regret.
What a book! I hope I don’t need to, but I know I’ll need the wonderful reminders and lessons from His Frontier Christmas Family again. I will keep this one close!

Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.
