About these Books
Christmas at Harrington’s
Lena Markham is making every effort to start anew after false accusations landed her in prison. However, being poor and friendless, and with job opportunities practically nonexistent, it appears the odds are stacked against her. Then, just as it seems all hope is lost, the discovery of a secondhand red coat unexpectedly lands her a holiday job as Mrs. Santa at a department store. Finally, Lena begins to think her luck is changing. But, can she keep her past a secret? And what will happen if anyone finds out?
With no friends, no money, and almost no hope, she must rely on the kindness of strangers as she sets out to rebuild her life in the small snow-covered town of New Haven, Minnesota, just before Christmas.
How can she find work when jobs seem virtually non-existent? What use could an old second hand red coat really be? And if she ever actually finds employment, will she be able to keep her jailbird past a secret? The heaven-sent answers, which take Lena completely by surprise, and being to restore her ragged faith, will truly amaze and delight you!
The Christmas Shoppe
Meet Matilda Honeycutt, a rather mysterious-looking older woman with untidy gray hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks. You’ll be astonished at how strongly the residents of Parrish Springs react when she buys the old Barton Building on the town’s quaint main street, and begins arranging the new store behind locked doors and papered up windows. Being rather image-conscious, the townsfolk feel that Parrish Springs doesn’t need “a junky shop run by someone who looks and acts like a gypsy.” So, they start looking for ways to get this peculiar woman and her wares out of town before Christmas. Will they succeed? Unbeknownst to them, the intriguing wares displayed on Matilda’s store shelves provide each and every one of them with something they never expected, but very much needed.
The Gift of Christmas Present
College student Christine Bradley grew up in a loving and honest family. But her whole world suddenly is turned upside down when, shortly after her mother’s passing, her father reveals the startling truth that Christine was adopted at birth. Now grappling with the loss of two mothers, Christine sets out to find her biological family. Can she come to terms with the shocking lineage she discovers? And does she have the strength to truly accept the past and usher in a bright future.
Relying heavily on her faith in God, Christine sets out in search of answers around Christmastime. Her brave, emotional search reveals a surprising lineage and brings her closer to a family she never knew she had. You’ll love reading how this incredible young woman comes to terms with her past, takes hold of the present, and opens up her heart and mind to embrace the bright future ahead of her.
