One Smooth Stone

by Marcia Lee Laycock

One Smooth Stone

The winner of the 2006 Best New Canadian Christian Author Award. No matter how far you run, God will find you. No matter how bad you’ve been, God will forgive you. Alex Donnelly is running and trying to hide. He has picked a good place to do it – The Yukon – but he is pursued by friends, enemies, and most effectively, by God. Burning with the need to know about his parents, Alex returns to his birth-city, Seattle, where he discovers that his mother tried to abort him. The trauma sends him on the run again only to find out God has orchestrated a divine appointment for him back in the Yukon. The story is filled with miraculous healing, struggles with rage and an obsession with revenge for a childhood abuser. This story illustrates that God never gives up on those whom He has chosen. God’s mercy and grace extend even to those who consider themselves unworthy, and even more, to those who are considered unworthy in the eyes of the world.

Full Circle to Forgiveness

by Peggy McGee

Full Circle to Forgiveness

In this inspiring, “long lost family” themed novel, two girls, who equally experienced the ultimate trauma in their lives, find themselves ostracized and condemned by their families. Will they find that one person or magic distraction to support and comfort them until they can emotionally heal from their experiences? Can they depend on one another to fulfill their gifts and talents to make a difference for themselves and others? And is it in their future to forgive those who have wronged them so they can ultimately find happiness in their lives? It may take a lifetime, but there is always the hope of righting a wrong, and by accepting the inevitable while coming full circle to be able to ultimately forgive. Only then could the ongoing nightmares be put to rest and to be free from oneself and the past.
