Although she lacks for nothing, Claudine Burroughs dreads the holiday season for forcing her to face how empty her life has become. She no longer expects closeness with her coldly ambitious husband, and she has nothing in common with their circle of wealthy, status-minded friends. The only time she is remotely happy is when she volunteers at a woman' s clinic-- a job her husband strongly disapproves of. Then, at a glittering yuletide gala, she meets the charming poet Dai Tregarron and finds her spirits lifted. But scarcely an hour later, the charismatic Dai is enmeshed in a nightmare-- accused of killing a young streetwalker who had been smuggled into the party. Even though she suspects that an upper-class clique is quickly closing ranks to protect the real killer, Claudine vows to do her utmost for Dai. But it seems that hypocritical London society would rather send an innocent poet to the gallows than expose the shocking truth about one of their own. Nevertheless, it' s the season of miracles and Claudine finally sees a glimmer of hope-- not only for Dai but for a young woman she befriends who is teetering on the brink of a lifetime of unhappiness. Anne Perry' s heartwarming new holiday novel is a celebration of courage, faith, and love for all seasons. PRAISE FOR THE CHRISTMAS NOVELS OF ANNE PERRY " Perry' s Victorian-era holiday mysteries . . . are for many an annual treat."-- The Wall Street Journal
