Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).
Sally is a teacher living in Southern Alberta. She opens a cracker after midnight on Christmas Eve, not realizing there's something extraordinary about the beautiful bauble. The next morning, she awakens to find herself over a hundred years in the past -- in 1899! Everyone in the small town believes her to be the new schoolteacher -- and her contract with the town promises to provide a husband! How can she possibly choose a complete stranger to marry?
Everyone knows that Jed, half French Canadian and half Kainai Indian, isn't looking for a wife. But when he and Sally are thrown together, she soon realizes there is only one possible choice -- in spite of what Jed or the townsfolk might expect.
