As the entire Malory family gathers at Haverston to celebrate the season, a mysterious present arrives anonymously. The gift is an old journal -- a tender and tempestuous account of the love affair between the second Marquis, Christopher Malory, and a dark gypsy beauty named Anastasia, who seeks a love match with a non-gypsy in order to save herself from a prearranged marriage to a brute. Though the dashing English lord Anastasia sets her sight upon burns for the exquisite, exotic miss, Christopher could never consent to wed such a lowborn lady. But miracles have been known to happen in this season of peace and giving and love, as two extraordinary people seperated by cicumstance of birth begin a passionate dance of will and wiles. And in the miraculous blossoming of a glorious romance at a long ago Christmastime, there are wise and well-learned lessons that will enrich the hearts of the Malory descendants -- and, indeed, of everyone who has ever dreamed.

    I have enjoyed reading Joanne Lindsey's books for a long time now. Her paper back books. I expected to get the same quality of reading from IBooks. I expected the whole story , not a condensed Version. This is not the first time I have read a story line that has been condensed. Looks like I'm going to be looking for a new app. I like reading on my IPad.

    I enjoyed the rich history of the Malory family. I read most of the books years ago and am in the middle of re-reading them...and enjoying every one.
