Availability: Ready to download

Gentle widow, Faith Randolph, took her young daughter, Charity, and fled her wealthy, pampered life in Brooklyn to escape a cruel and manipulative father. Her first marriage had been nothing more than a loveless business arrangement, so when Faith's father tries to marry her off a second time to an elderly man who wants to send Charity away to boarding school, she decides Gentle widow, Faith Randolph, took her young daughter, Charity, and fled her wealthy, pampered life in Brooklyn to escape a cruel and manipulative father. Her first marriage had been nothing more than a loveless business arrangement, so when Faith's father tries to marry her off a second time to an elderly man who wants to send Charity away to boarding school, she decides to run away and start a new life. They made it as far a No Name, Colorado, where all Faith's money was stolen, and she found herself rummaging in trash bins for food and sleeping in a livery stable. Half-starved and worried about her daughter's well-being, Faith goes looking around town for gainful employment, and encounters a peddler who insists that she take a beautiful wedding gown that he hasn't been able to sell. After reluctantly accepting the generous gift, Faith sees an advertisement for a housekeeper in the general store window, which she would have sworn was not there before. The store keeper says the ad is months old and the position has likely already been filled, but he points her in the direction of a ranch belonging to Patrick O'Shannessy, the man who placed the notice. At first Patrick doesn't want to hire Faith, thinking she is too young and dainty to make a good ranch housekeeper, but when the miles-long walk from town on an empty stomach causes Faith to collapse in Patrick's front yard, the compassionate man in him can do nothing else but tend to both mother and daughter. When Faith is recovered, Patrick hires her anyway, but it soon becomes clear that the pampered city girl doesn't have the first idea how to perform her duties. Faith refuses to stay without pulling her own weight, but Patrick knows the only other job available in town is for a saloon girl. Since his honor will not allow him to place a needy woman and child in that kind of position, Patrick strikes a risky bargain to keep Faith and Charity with him, but her ruthless father will stop at nothing to get them back.

    Sangat singkat. Dimulai hari ini selesai hari ini. Ini memang novella sebenernya, dan aslinya cerita ini digabung dalam satu buku The True Love Wedding Dress, kumpulan cerita dari beberapa pengarang historical romance. Sepertinya sih benang merahnya si wedding dress itu, yang setelah dipakai untuk menikah lalu hilang begitu saja. Jadi ini campuran antara hisrom dan magic dikit^^ Beautiful Gifts tentang adiknya Caitlin, Patrick. Patrick terpaksa menerima bekerja seorang wanita muda yang bernama Fa Sangat singkat. Dimulai hari ini selesai hari ini. Ini memang novella sebenernya, dan aslinya cerita ini digabung dalam satu buku The True Love Wedding Dress, kumpulan cerita dari beberapa pengarang historical romance. Sepertinya sih benang merahnya si wedding dress itu, yang setelah dipakai untuk menikah lalu hilang begitu saja. Jadi ini campuran antara hisrom dan magic dikit^^ Beautiful Gifts tentang adiknya Caitlin, Patrick. Patrick terpaksa menerima bekerja seorang wanita muda yang bernama Faith dan anaknya yang berusia 6 tahun di rumahnya sebagai pengurus rumah tangga. Faith dan anaknya, Charity, sudah 3 hari tidur di kandang dan terpaksa makan makanan sisa karena mereka tidak punya uang. Faith melarikan diri dari ayahnya yang mengancam akan menikahkan dia kembali. Trauma dengan pernikahan pertamanya, Faith memilih kabur. Karena uangnya dicuri, Faith terdampar di No Name dan melihat ada lowongan pekerjaan di peternakan O'Shannessy sebagai pengurus rumah tangga. Tapi sebelumnya Faith bertemu dengan seorang penjual permen yang baik hati dan memberikan sebuah gaun pengantin kepada Faith secara cuma-cuma. Patrick yang tidak menyangka pelamar pengurus rumah tangganya adalah seorang wanita muda dan cantik pada awalnya menolak, tetapi kemudian tidak sampai hati melihat keadaan Faith dan Charity yang menyedihkan. Mengaku berpengalaman sebagai pengurus rumah tangga, Faith akhirnya mulai bekerja. Tapi sebagai anak orang kaya di tempat asalnya, Faith sebenarnya tidak bisa melakukan apa-apa termasuk memasak. Akhirnya dengan sabar Patrick mengajarinya. Dan lama-kelamaan tumbuh perasaan di antara mereka berdua. Charitypun sangat menyukai Patrick. Tapi satu hal yang ditakutkan Faith, bahwa ayahnya akan mengejar mereka sampai ke No Name. Dan ketika akhirnya Patrick melamarnya, bersediakah Faith? Dibanding buku-buku Catherine Anderson yang lain, Beautiful Gifts memang "kurang nendang". Terlalu singkat. Tapi bisa dimengerti, karena ini hanya novella. But still, this is Catherine Anderson. And as her fan, I won't miss it :)
