It’s Christmastime in Good Springs, and Lydia Bradshaw is eager for the light at the end of her year—the Colburn family’s big holiday gathering. When she discovers none of her siblings are coming back to the village this year, she believes Christmas will be ruined. As Lydia faces a gloomy holiday in the Colburn house, an unexpected romance brightens her favorite season. Will it be enough to rekindle the light of Christmas?
“What a beautiful Christmas story with a subtle, but powerful message.”
“I can honestly say this was one of the best Christmas books I have ever read. It is about traditions, the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ and opening your doors to others.”
“The more you read, the more you want to read!”
CIR: What inspired this book?
KEITH: This novella is about the first Christmas after the Uncharted series, but it works as a standalone. I imagined what the characters’ lives would be like at Christmastime after all they’ve been through.
CIR: What message do you hope your readers will get out of this book?
KEITH: So many of us experience sadness or disappointment during the holidays, and often we miss someone who is gone, possibly forever. This story walks through those disappointments and offers hope.
CIR: Tell us about your favorite character in the book.
