Nora comes from a special family. Her mother can "see" things before they happen and her Uncle Tye is "sensitive" to what other people are feeling. These characters, along with Nora's extended family, have previously featured in the author's "Texas Devlins" series. While some details seem irrelevant to this story, I'm sure fans of the "Texas Devlins" series will be glad to catch up with some old friends.
This novella gives us a lovely insight into how Christmas Day was celebrated in 1885, especially with respect to the types of presents the children received, and in relation to the specific roles of the men and women. I was pleased to see the author not only concentrate on the developing romance between Nora and Vittorio, but to also portray the loving relationship of the older married couple, David and Jessie Taylor.
This is a nice introduction to the upcoming romance novel featuring Nora and Vittorio as adults. A glossary of the Spanish terms used would be helpful.
I received this book in return for an honest review.

It is July, 1885 in Bosque County, Texas. Nora Taylor and Vittorio Medina have been raised together. But, Nora is the land owner’s daughter. She is white and only twelve years old. Vito is the land manager’s son, he is Mexican and is four years older. It’s always been his job to protect Nora. But a day came when he started to see her as more than his little sister. So he knew it was time to go. He took a job as a ranch hand at a neighboring ranch.
At Christmas when he comes home to visit, Nora proclaims her love for Vito so he had to do the honorable thing, even though it wasn’t true, and tell her he didn’t feel the same way. That he saw her only as a little sister. Nora is heart broken. But her mother has a special gift for Nora. A gift that gives her hope that a day will come when she and Vito can be together. She will have to be patient and wait a long time. But she is convinced that their time will someday come.
