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 townâ€™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 secretâ€”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.
