After the hard winter of 1888 ended Alby Boyle’s work as a Nebraska ranch hand, he returned to New York City in search of his long-lost family. His mother and brothers are nowhere to be found, however, and after Alby’s years of absence, Five Corners no longer feels like home. His prospects seem as dim as the nighttime alleys.
When Alby pauses to admire an angel ornament in a department store window’s Christmas display, he meets Xeno Varnham-Summerfield. Wealthy, handsome, and enthusiastic, Xeno brings Alby some temporary cheer. But for Alby to achieve his dreams of love and a real home, well, that may take a bit of holiday magic.
Oooooh, I liked this! I loved the writing, the whole atmosphere of the place. Such a great comfort Christmas read.
It’s 1888 and Alby has just arrived in New York City. Now in his 30s, he has come back to the place he left when he was 13 when he was shipped off to work at a farm. Alby would like to know what happened to his mother and brothers, but the home he was born in doesn’t seem to exist anymore.
When Alby almost gets run over by a trolley, someone pushes him out of the way. Xenocrates Varnham-Summerfield his savior introduces himelf as. But Alby can call him Xeno.
When Alby tries to find a place to stay for the night, Xeno tells him to go to the YMCA. So that’s where Alby ends up. A place where he can eat, wash, and sleep while he is in the city.
Alby tries to find out more about his family, but he doesn’t know where to start. And he also keeps running into the beautiful Xeno….
Alby and Xeno were a joy to read about. Alby was sweet and a little gruff, while Xeno was this positive ball of energy. I loved how this was completely angst free. These men couldn’t seem to stay away from each other, and with the help of a christmas angel, they sure got their well-deserved HEA.
