Jessie travels with your six-year-old daughter Emma from Baltimore to Grand View, Colorado, and for Jessie, even though it was 1933, it could have been moving out to the wild west. She had been offered a job as a nurse for Dr. Beth Starr. Upon arrive though she finds out she doesn't have a job. What will she do? Dr. Starr feels really bad so she makes a suggestion that she go and work as a living-in nurse for her mother who just recently had a stroke. Beth's father was all for it, and, well, what could Jessie do? She had no money, so she goes out to the Culdee Creek Ranch. She senses that Sean MacKay, one of Beth's brothers, does not see Jessie and her child as a welcome relief for his father. He sees them as two more mouths to feed. Sean MacKay has had a lot of hurt in his life and a lot of things have hardened his heart towards people and God. Jessie has had her own hurts and mistrust. At first Sean and Jessie don't get along but then they find a happy medium and try and become friends. Emma tries to tell her mommy that God has everything under control, but Jessie is not so sure. With only working for room and board she is still penniless and doesn't know what the future holds. Will Jessie and Sean get past their past and see a future or will some misunderstandings send the both in different directions? It is Christmas at Culdee Creek, and things can get mighty interesting. I have never read a book by Kathleen Morgan, but after reading One Perfect Gift, I would like to read more about Culdee Creek. The characters are sweet, the story is sound. One Perfect Gift is a great Christmas story about accepting the love that is standing in front of you. God's Love. God's love is that One Perfect Gift.

terrific Depression Era romance

In 1933 penniless widow Jessica Ashmore accompanied by her six year old daughter Emma moves from Baltimore to Grand View, Colorado where she has obtained work as a caretaker to stroke victim Abby MacKay. Jessica and Emma move into Abby's home, the Culdee Creek Ranch. The mom hopes for a real holiday season for her daughter on this ranch east of Colorado Springs. However, Jessica is stunned when she meets her employer's acrimonious adult son, Sean. He seems angry at the world and at times takes it out on Jessica. Still they work as a team trying to do what is best for his mom while falling in love. However, they have no future unless Sean can overcome the demons that haunt him; Jessica believes God can help guide him, but Sean's anguish keeps him blind. ONE PERFECT GIFT is a terrific Depression Era romance starring two people who have reacted to personal traumas differently. Whereas Sean is filled with anger, Jessica is filled with God and love for her child. Fans will appreciate this Colorado historical tale of redemption if Sean will only reach out for it.

Excellent Christmas Read

This was a good, easy to read story. It kept me interested so that I read it in one evening. Even though it had the potential to be very intense, the storyline doesn't overwhelm, since the book is fairly short. Overall I really enjoyed it and found it a great Christmas read.
