Summary

It's Christmas in Asherville, Texas, and Poor Boy finally comes home. He’s no longer the waif we grew to love; he is very much a man now. As the stage coach approaches his beloved town, he spots Sheriff Shane O’Conner riding off after a pair of bank robbers. Poor Boy, the new deputy, quickly finds a horse and races after them. One of the robbers is killed, and to his surprise, the other outlaw is a beautiful young woman.

Molly McDonagh is heartbroken; the last of her family is dead. Now she’s in jail waiting to hang. Bounty hunters soon come to see if she is another wanted female outlaw, and Shane decides Poor Boy needs to take his prisoner to a ranch where they can hide out as brother and sister.

How can something as sweet and wonderful as love be so very painful? Loving someone you know is going to swing from a rope is agony. Poor Boy knows Christmas is a time for miracles, but he’s never experienced one before. Can he truly give away his heart to someone who has no future? Can living for the moment be uplifting, or is it sheer heartbreak?

Poor Boy falls in love.

There is a character in Ms. Ball's books that has finally grown up and received his own book. I am so glad because his character was such a sweet young man who faced extreme hard times growing up. Instead of his circumstances growing up making his heart hard, his heart is tender. Molly also had a hard life and faces a whole lot of trouble. Poor Boy sees her for who she is and tries to help her. There are some very tender moments in the story requiring at least a couple of tissues. I believe everyone will enjoy this story especially if you have been following the series.

A very nice Christmas present

I have enjoyed the entiree series [Mail Order Brides of Texas] and really liked the way Kathleen Ball brough Poor Boy back into the story. Having gone away to school, Poor Boy returnes to Asherville,Texas, as deputy to Sheriff Shane O'Connor. Unexpectedly his stage arrives in town to see the sheriff riding out after two bank robbers. Of course Poor Boy joins in the chase and our story begins to unfold. I hope this is not tlhe last book in this series. I look forward to seeing what Kathleen does next. Jullie Hoverson did a great job with the narration.
