Early February 1942—Amber Leaf, Minnesota
Jo Bremley fears losing her husband to war, but by a cruel twist of fate he dies instead in a blinding snowstorm at the hands of her nemesis and his best friend, Tryg Howland. Now all she wants is her storybook world back.
Left alone with her seven-year-old daughter, Jo takes in laundry to eke out a living. Meanwhile Tryg, the pride of the town with his status as war hero, sets up a flourishing law practice.
Now Jo stands toe-to-toe with the demons threatening to destroy what little happiness and peace she has left — rumors that she is about to lose her much-needed job; her daughter’s repeated incidents with an old curmudgeon, Big Ole; and Jo’s inability to buy a simple present to give her bereaved daughter a special Christmas.
