Lori Stanley Roeleveldabout this book: WARNING: Helen Bancroft is not a sweet woman and this is NOT a sweet story!
What if God took you up on a dare? Would you like to have been in Newport at the end of WWII? JFK's wedding? Woodstock? Helen Bancroft was. Growing up in RI, attending Brown, then working at The Providence Journal as a reporter, she lived it all. Looking back, she sorts through a lifetime of experience with some strange and supernatural help on Christmas Eve. You have to meet Helen. She's one amazing lady with a tongue to match her sharp wit and secrets you won't believe.
Helen Bancroft's led a good life and feels no need for her daughter's Savior. When God accepts Helen's dare to edit her autobiography and prove her righteousness, she's in for a lesson in her own history. One woman's journey from unbelief to acceptance turns into the Christmas Eve adventure of a lifetime beneath the red pen of Christ's mercy and grace.
This novella is the perfect rainy day read to give you a fresh perspective on, not only the season, but maybe even your own history.
• "You will hold your breath more than once! Powerful writing, and a concept that I guarantee will blow your mind! Real life. Real attitudes. The painful power of misunderstanding revealed, and the matchless, awesome hope that the truth can set one free!" — Sharon Rose, Amazon reviewer
