About the Book
Celebrate the joyful hope of the Christmas season as characters find healing in the midst of heartbreak.
Christmas in Blue
In the wake of a personal loss deeper than anyone realizes, Angela plans to bypass as much of the season as possible and get through her duties as the church organist by going on autopilot. Instead, she finds herself in charge of the town’s celebration. After a mysterious young man arrives, townspeople suspect he is the reason that one set of plans after another disintegrate until little is left of their traditions. Yet Angela warms to Gabe because she suspects they share a secret—his real reason for coming to town. Even when all they have to work with is a garish supply of blue Christmas decorations, Gabe helps Angela discover the hidden beauty of hope.
Christmas in Gold
After eighty years, change is nothing new for Astrid. By the time she was twenty, she survived the destructive Nazi regime, caring for her family under brutal circumstances, moving to America, and losing her husband. At forty she was widowed again and left to build a new life with her children. Now, when she faces a move into an assisted living community and meets a young woman on the brink of despair, she resolves to stir up hope through tragedy one more time.
About the Author
Olivia Newport's novels twist through time to find where faith and passions meet. She chases joy in Colorado, where daylilies grow as tall as she is. Her husband and two twenty-something children provide welcome distraction from the people stomping through her head on their way into her books.
Author Olivia Newport has written two beautiful, sweet, tender, and touching stories, Christmas in Gold and Christmas in Blue, in her Christmas book Colors of Christmas. These two stories will capture the heart of readers as they bring to light the hardships of life changes, but the joy this can also bring. Especially with the Christmas holidays just around the corner. Newport has written heart-rending stories that readers will relate to, as well as be inspired by. Readers of contemporary and holiday fiction will enjoy these stories.
