A Christmas Novel
Two broken women, two bruised children, can Grace offer what they’re looking for? Watch for the mistletoe magic as two sisters settle in the tiny town of Grace.
When Rence Paladin leaves the big city, she leaves behind a failed marriage and takes her scarred young daughter, Livy, with her. Her sister, Sandy, comes along with her son, while still grieving the loss of her husband years before.
Rence promises Livy an extra special Christmas, but it may be more than she can deliver when they encounter a frightening man in the woods on their first day in Grace. What is his secret? And why is the town hiding it?
Optimistic of a fresh start, their new home in the Holly Estates mobile home park is just what Livy and Josiah need when they meet the grandparent-like substitutes of Stu and Evelyn, the property managers. Rence loves her new job at Grace hospital, especially when she meets the mysterious Carl. Meanwhile, things heat up between Sandy and Nick, the owner of the Kissing Café.
Despite the chilling temps, Carl’s cold exterior begins to melt when Rence is around, but when his past catches up, the big freeze is back on. Will history repeat itself, or will the town stop another fiasco? Will Livy get the special Christmas Rence promised? It may take a little Mistletoe Village magic and a whole lot of grace, but only God knows!
