It's a Vet's Life by Cathy Woodman
Alex and Maz are due to get married at Christmas. But as busy country vets, there's little time for each other, let alone arranging a wedding. It's going to take a Christmas miracle to get these two down the aisle.
Born on the same night in the summer of 1854, two infants are ripped away from their young mothers. Kate lives the life of a servant, penniless and shackled to her circumstances, while Josie grows up in the lap of luxury, given privilege and freedom she takes for granted.
Although their lives couldn't be more different, Kate and Josie have been friends since childhood. But their past binds them together in ways they must never know.
Until a chance meeting with a gypsy woman in the street forces Kate and Josie to confront the truth of their pasts—a truth that turns both worlds upside down and threatens their friendship and their very lives.
