A Christmas celebration, an engagement in doubt…
Maggie and Frank are excited to welcome the entire family home for Christmas. It’s been too long since they were all together, and since Frank’s heart attack, they cherish each moment spent with their family.
Plus, there could be two engagement announcements!
Janella’s bringing Wade to Christmas, and everybody’s expecting Sean to finally pop the question to Elizabeth.
The whole cattle station’s buzzing with anticipation.
But Sean still has niggling doubts.
Since Uncle Frank appointed him as co-manager of Goddard Downs, his life has changed for the better, and at last he feels like somebody, and yet, he can’t shrug off his father’s words.
Although he loves Elizabeth, how can he expect her to marry him when his dad could be right and he could fall into his old ways at any time?
Elizabeth Martin’s had enough of waiting for Sean to propose, and Bree's offer to travel the world and nurse wherever the Lord leads holds appeal.
But can she leave Sean? The thought distresses her.
But does she love him enough to wait forever for him to propose?
What if he never does?
How can she join his family for Christmas when all eyes will be on them?
It’d be easier not to go.
She’ll pick up another shift, make her excuses.
Somebody needs to care for the sick while everyone else celebrates the birth of Jesus.
Can this impasse be broken? Can Sean find the courage to face his fears and commit to Elizabeth before he loses her?
Will Elizabeth choose to travel the world, or will this Christmas be one that will change her life forever?
Join the Goddard family for a Christmas to remember. Christmas at Goddard Downs is Book Six in the Sunburned Land Series, a contemporary Christian romance set in the beautiful, rugged and remote Kimberley area of northern Australia.
WHAT READERS SAY ABOUT THE SERIES
"I just loved this Aussie family story. The characters are real with their faults and fears yet there is an underlying trust in God that isn't preachy. While this book tied up the loose ends from the saga, it was done with enough unexpected twists to make you want to keep reading to the end. The descriptions of Frank & Maggie's road trip added some places to my bucket list." Keralyn
"One of the best books I have read in a very long time! A book full of love and Christian values!" Stamper 82
"This last book was exhilarating, nail biting and I just didn’t want to stop reading. A fantastic read. I wish it wasn’t the final book but all good things must come to an end. I felt like I knew the Goddard family. What a faithful family." Delores
