A Christmas to Remember

by Jackie Zack

A Christmas to Remember

Time for a Little Christmas Magic?

It’s December in small-town Indiana, and the life of nineteen-year-old Ellie Amerson has been turned upside down. Her mother remarried, and Ellie is no longer welcome in her own house. Sent to Grandpa’s cozy home, she finds a comforting refuge but is handed a detailed project. Can she complete the tasks in time? Her job at the diner has demands of its own.

When a mysterious cat named Trance appears, Ellie begins to have unusual dreams, too vivid to be imagined. She is shocked to learn the places where Trance had taken her are real. In the shadowy time between times, she discovers a handsome young man who desperately needs her help. The more she learns about him, the fonder her heart grows. Can she put the pieces together and save him before time runs out, or will she be lost from her world forever? What will this Christmas bring?






Finding Baby Jesus

by Lynn Weathington

Finding Baby Jesus

A tiny stable. A young betrothed couple. An angel from heaven. Sheep and shepherds from the hill country. Magi from the east bearing gifts. The stage is set for the Messiah’s humble birth, except for one crucial detail…He fell through a hole in the shipping package.

Finding Baby Jesus focuses on two diverse young women: Leigh Day, whose nativity scene is missing a key character, and Lucy Grant, who saves a tiny bundle after it falls from a delivery truck. Each one struggling with life-altering circumstances, they inhabit the same small town in Georgia.

Will Baby Jesus find his way back into the nativity in time for Christmas?
