A Christmas Promise by K.C. Wells
The last thing Micah Trant expects to find in the snow by the side of the road, is a badly beaten man. But when Micah discovers his identity, it feels like more than mere coincidence is at work here. Like modern day Good Samaritans, he and his dad offer the stranger a place to recuperate. After all, it’s almost Thanksgiving, and Greg is in no state to travel home. It’s not an entirely altruistic move: Micah wants answers, and he’s not the only one.Greg cannot believe the way things turned out. The odds of Micah being the one to find him have to be astronomical, but he accepts the kind offer. As days become weeks, Greg learns more about Micah’s family, and comes to realize that staying with them for a Wyoming Christmas might just provide him with the answers he’s been seeking.
The magic of the holidays will also conjure up something neither Micah nor Greg expected….
Oh, what an incredibly sweet story. I had tears, I had tissues, I snuffled into Faith's fur as I read Greg and Micah's story. In a way, the focus of the story is more about family, past and present, and what could have been. Would I object to a little more of their relationship in another story? That would be a bonus. If you want fireworks, this isn't the story for you. This is like a Christmas movie; a slow start, but a lovely burn, and just right for Christmas.
