Postmark Christmas by Katie Bachand – Free eBooks Download
Harlow Hill is destined to spend another holiday lonely and alone. Her mom and dad are jet-setting around the world, and her brother and sister are working tirelessly running the marketing branches of their family firm in New York and Nashville. Which means, Harlow is left to care for the cherished family home.
Harlow loves The Hill – the inherited Victorian mansion located on the historic Summit Avenue of St. Paul, Minnesota – especially this time of the year. But, the beauty of the home and the wonder of the winter season isn’t filling the immaculate hollow halls and countless empty rooms with the family and friends she’s yearning for.
Unable to accept another night of loneliness, on Thanksgiving, Harlow takes a walk in the snow and runs into Santa Claus as he’s setting up a Christmas postbox. A postbox where people can send their Christmas wishes in a hopeful letter to Santa.
Later that night, Harlow doesn’t know if it’s the wine or hot chocolate, but as she’s looking at old family photographs from Christmases past, the nostalgia consumes her. Harlow decides, with a little encouragement from Santa Claus, she’s not too old to write her own Christmas letter.
Across town, Harris Porter sits in his office and remembers a time when their family hadn’t had a lot of money. A time when they struggled and his parents could barely afford his pee wee hockey gear. He also remembers how their lives had changed as the family business expanded.
Now, as an executive at the company, he does everything he can to become more profitable, ensuring their family never has to go without – even if it means skipping the holidays again this year.
So, when Harris has the opportunity to collaborate with a reputable Minnesota agriculture and feed company, and make an extremely substantial profit, it’s the chance of a lifetime. His dad likes the idea too, but unfortunately for Harris, his dad also believes in the spirit of Christmas.
As the company that sponsors the Christmas Postbox, Harris’ dad sees the perfect opportunity to force his son into celebrating the season. Harris can move forward with the collaboration, but only if he answers a sweet little Christmas letter from a woman named, Harlow Hill.
