Sandra Ardoinabout this book: "This was a fun quick read that celebrates the season of giving in a way that inspired me to look for opportunities to be generous as well." – One of 55 Amazon 5-Star Reviews
Although The Yuletide Angel is fiction, as the author, my hope is that those who read it experience the same reaction as the person who left the above review. This Christmas romance novella takes the reader into a less-hectic time and place in history and emphasizes the theme of giving with a right heart. I know I need that reminder on occasion.
It was a pleasurable book to write, and I like to say God spit it out. That may not sound very romantic, but that's what it felt like to write it—quick and easy. Some books are that way. Others come slowly and with great difficulty.
In The Yuletide Angel, Violet Madison believes good deeds should not attract attention for the sake of one's image. So she gives … in secret. Hugh Barnes discovers the identity of the anonymous person the townspeople call the Yuletide Angel. He is both delighted to find she is his shy neighbor and shocked by the risk she takes in delivering her gifts in the middle of the night. So he vows to protect her … in secret.
In this story, Hugh has been estranged from his brother for five years and must deal with forgiveness. When I first included the brother, Kit Barnes, I had no idea his story would be the next I'd write. I'm happy to say that the novel A Reluctant Melody releases in early 2016. Here's a short summary: A blackmailer threatens to reveal a reclusive widow's secret to the man who ruined her.
I hope you enjoy the sweet love story of Hugh and Violet. And, remember, the season for giving never ends.
"No matter what time of year one reads 'The Yuletide Angel' readers will be blessed and reminded of the greatest gift ever given, the Lord Jesus ... " – Amazon 5-Star Review
