The Greatest Western Writers Of The 21st Century
The families Jensen and MacCallister reunite in a gripping tale of tragedy, survival, love, betrayal, and maybe even a miracle . . .
Three days before Christmas, Matt Jensen is traveling the Denver and Pacific railway when an avalanche slams down onto the train, trapping it in desolate Trout Creek Pass. But it wasn’t an act of nature that caused the accident; it was a gang of outlaws attempting to rescue their leader, who is being taken to Red Cliff to be hanged.
As Smoke Jensen and Duff MacCallister frantically try to make their way to the scene, Matt struggles to save the survivors, among them a beautiful young woman with a dark past, a merchant seaman turned rancher, and a senator with his very ill young daughter. Starving under a bitter, driving snow in the brutal, unforgiving Rocky Mountains, and surrounded by armed and desperate outlaws, Matt still dreams of making it home for Christmas. But unless fate lends a hand, nobody will.

A Rocky Mountain Christmas by William Johnstone
Matt Jensen is on his way to spend Christmas with the family-the ones who took him in.
Jenny McCoy is on the same train after she's been wed, widowed and banished.
The Senator is on the train with his wife and very sickly daughter. The sheriff is escorting a man to prison for 4 years along with a man to be hanged for holding up a man and asking for all his money.
There are others on and about the area when the train is derailed due to an avalanche. How will they survive and pull together to make it through the storm???
Easy to keep the characters straight. Love a good western and this is one of them.
I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
