The perfect heartwarming romance for Christmas, rich in historical detail.

She turned the picture of the Christmas card over with her frozen hands, a pretty picture of a family gathering at Yuletide. How different from her own life; stiff with cold on the icy cobbles, aching for shelter . . .

When her father dies leaving Alice and her ailing mother with only his debts, the two grieving women are forced to rely on the begrudging charity of cruel Aunt Jane. Determined to rid herself of an expensive responsibility, Jane tries forcing Alice into a monstrous marriage. And when Alice refuses, she is sent to work in a grand house to earn her keep.

Finding herself in sole charge of the untameable and spoilt young miss of the house, Alice’s only ally is handsome Uncle Rory, who discovers that Alice has talents beyond those of a mere servant. But when someone sets out to destroy her reputation, Alice can only pray for a little of that Christmas spirit to save her from ruin . . .

Not just a book for Christmas – interesting on so many levels!

How much do I love Dilly Court’s novels? This is a brilliant story about the origins of how Christmas cards came to be and the characters are some of the best I’ve read about in fiction in a while. The writing just flows and I always feel in the comfort of friends when I read one of Dilly’s books. I get so involved between wanting to slap Flora at one point to slamming the door in Aunt Jane’s face to going round to Rory’s house and telling him the obvious I was as invested with these people and now feel really sad they’re gone. But I can still see them all clearly and even hear their voices which goes to show what a great story this is.

I use to print cards and so I was delighted to read how they were first designed. From the first page I was engrossed Dilly Court tells fabulous stories. Not only do we get history but the story of families woven together. Can’t wait for her next book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So much so that the other half complained as I was reading into the small hours. I was engrossed in the story after the first couple of pages. Dilly Court is a master at drawing you right into the story. I will now look for the next Dilly Court novel.

A riveting read.

I have read a lot of Dilly Court books and they never disappoint you. This book was perhaps not one of the most intriguing I have read , but nevertheless I enjoyed it. She manages to make you almost think you are with the characters. I would recommend it .

I love this author. Her books are fantastic, you really can’t put them down. Her characters are well researched and the storyline twists and turns so that you have to keep turning the pages. I have read all her books handbook forward to the new one next year. A good read for all ages.
