Welcome to the holiday season! I’m interrupting my regularly scheduled theme, which is all about endings this month, and taking time to highlight the books of writer friends. If you’re looking to buy Christian fiction as gifts, the posts this week will give you ideas on how to wrap up a great story for a gift. First up is Home Where She Belongs by Penny Frost McGinnis, a fellow author with Mt. Zion Ridge Press. Here’s the back cover blurb for her debut novel.
Tired of being a pawn for her father and an emotional punching bag for her ex-boyfriend, Sadie Stewart escapes to Abbott Island where she spent summers with her grandparents. Would the love and faith she learned from them be enough to fuel her new life? She wants to believe God’s promises, yet broken trust holds her back.
Joel Grayson left the island long enough to train at the Police Academy. The community trusts him, even though he’s failed. When he finds Sadie at her grandparents’ cottages, his heart skips a beat. He’d love to get to know her again, but no one needs to share the hurt he harbors.
When Sadie discovers someone is sabotaging her future, she seeks Joel’s help. As they are drawn together, will Joel let down his guard and let her in? Will Sadie trust the man who loves her and the Father Who cares?
To get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what inspiration Penny used to pen (Sorry. Had to do it) her “small-town romance with a dash of mystery and the promise of hope”, click here to visit her post. Penny also wrote a guest blog for me about using nature in our writing.
What’s the best book you’ve received as a Christmas gift?
