About the Book
Rev. James Turner takes his job seriously. As pastor of Lindenport Christian Church, he makes sure his congregation is spiritually fed and that their needs are met, especially during the holidays.
Christmas Eve services is a mainstay to the Christian faith. At James’ church, it's no different. The decorating committees have the church decked out for the holidays.
Pastor James' faith is challenged when a beautiful female parishioner confides in him about her past, putting both and loved ones in danger.
The magical beauty and wonder of Christmas Eve is a perfect backdrop for remembering God's continued protection through adversity.
About the Author
Editor and award winning novelist, Grace Augustine, grew up in Montana. Her work career has taken her from title and abstracting to administrative assistant church work to co-owning a small town weekly newspaper to her current profession as an author and editor. When she isn't at her keyboard, she is enjoying her passions: a good game of Scrabble, acrylic painting on canvas, watching old movies,listening to Celtic/folk music, or speaking on behalf of Multiple Sclerosis. She currently resides in Iowa with her older son and a feisty 3 yr old feline named, Babou.
“I don’t mean to be difficult. I don’t trust too many, Pastor Turner. I know you’re a man of God and I know what we talk about won’t go farther than the walls of your office. It’s just…”Tears fell down Jaden’s soft pink cheeks. She buried her face in her hands and sobbed.
James knelt beside her chair, placing a hand on her shoulder. He was puzzled as to what would bring this woman to such grief. He was afraid of driving her away with more questions, but if he didn’t ask, he wasn’t going to know. He grabbed a handful of tissues from the box on his desk and placed them in her hands.
“Jaden, whatever this burden is you are carrying, you know you will feel better once you share it with someone. I’m here and I want to help.”
Jaden mopped up her tears and relaxed into the chair. She opened her purse and pulled out a crumpled piece of paper and handed it to James.
“This is freaking me out,” she admitted. “I thought I was finished with all of this. They promised I’d be safe.”
James took the note and smoothed the wrinkles. Five words scrawled in blue ink stared back at him.
