Faced with a choice, David has to decide what matters the most. Home…or the heart. 

After completing an assignment in Alaska, he’s about to head home, but he realizes he might be leaving behind his heart—Cris, the woman he fell in love with. Now he has to make a choice. Return home to everything he knows, or take a chance on love.

This short story was pretty good, you could feel how the characters felt through the words that were used. It was well written and I wish it was a full story because you don't get a chance to get to know the characters, they drew my interest but because it was so short you couldn't get to fully explore them.

When David's job in Alaska end's he goes back home to Ohio leaving Cris behind because she doesn't want to leave her home and family in Alaska but both of them are miserable about the decision's they make.

As David waits at the airport hoping Cris will turn up and leave with him Cris decides the best way to get threw the heartbreak, Christmas and her birthday is to spend it alone in a cabin in the woods because everything she looks at reminds her of him, she doesn't realise he has stayed.

It wasn't predictable and I was hoping the present was something different. I would like to read more about this story giving more details on how they met and what happened after Christmas.
