Book Spotlight

Christmas stories always take us to a place of warmth and joy. Over the next few weeks I’d be spotlighting some wonderful stories I’m sure you’d love to check out.

The Christmas lights in the mission’s front window are burning a little dim. So is Pastor Nick Mayfield’s hope. Managing a down-on-its-luck mission in a tough neighborhood in Philadelphia isn’t easy, and not for the first time, he questions his decision to leave a promising law career to follow his calling.
Across the street, Claudia Delacorte works day and night in her abusive stepfather’s store. She’ll do anything to assure her beloved half-sisters have a happy and safe future, even sacrifice her own happiness. So when the new pastor shows interest in her, she scoffs at his naïve overtures—she doesn’t have time for love. Or Christmas.
But when a series of crimes throw the neighborhood into turmoil, Claudia becomes an easy target. During a robbery gone horribly wrong, Nick and Claudia must work together to save her sisters, the store, and each other. Will this tragedy restore hope to their community? Or will they lose everything they’ve fought so hard to keep?

More From Laura

“What I want for my readers is first the simple pleasure of a sweet story to break up the breathless rush of Thanksgiving-Christmas-New-Years that often overtakes women. My second wish is that my readers remember that the “hope” in Season of Hope is that Jesus offers us new beginnings, even when our mistakes or others’ hurtful choices seem to have us trapped.”
