Love: purer than Colorado snow, deeper than a Louisiana bayou. The Colorado Rockies have always been home to journalist Kelly Shepherd, but after the death of her father, and facing her first Christmas alone, she accepts an assignment that leads her deep into Louisiana's Cajun country. Since his wife's death, Denny Labouve has focused his attention on his ten-year-old daughter and the family business, but Kelly sparks the dying embers of his heart even as a Christmas cold front moves through his beloved Cajun country. Will Denny and Kelly be able to trust God to bridge the span between the Colorado Rockies and the Louisiana bayou?
