about the book

Picking a Bride for Paul by Jodie Wolfe
When Teddy Love’s neighbor and best friend breaks his leg, she pitches in to do whatever she can to help him on his farm. But when he enlists her aid in finding a wife, she comes to realize she has feelings for him.
Paul Baker follows his heart mother’s wishes by looking for a bride from the East who is refined and gentile, two qualities Teddy isn’t. When his potential bride arrives, he finds himself comparing her to Teddy. How can he go back and change things before he makes the biggest mistake of his life?
Typhoon Prompting by Terri Wangard

A destroyer escort is among the smallest of warships, but the USS Tabberer has the heart of a giant. A typhoon threatens the US Fleet in the Pacific during World War II, days before Christmas. The men of the Tabberer stand tall as they rush to the aid of their fellow sailors. For Seaman Jerry Collier, the typhoon prompts a greater awareness of what he wants in life. First, though, they have to survive.

A Dr. in the House by Linda Shenton Matchett
Emma O’Sullivan is one of the first female doctors to enlist after President Franklin Roosevelt signs the order allowing women in the Army and Navy medical corps. Within weeks, Emma is assigned to England to set up a convalescent hospital, and she leaves behind everything that is familiar. When the handsome widower of the requisitioned property claims she’s incompetent and tries to get her transferred, she must prove to her superiors she’s more than capable. But she’s soon drawn to the good-looking, grieving owner. Will she have to choose between her job and her heart?

Archibald “Archie” Heron is the last survivor of the Heron dynasty, his two older brothers having been lost at Dunkirk and Trondheim and his parents in the Blitz. After his wife is killed in a bombing raid while visiting Brighton, he begins to feel like a modern-day Job. To add insult to injury, the British government requisitions his country estate, Heron Hall, for the U.S. Army to use as a hospital. The last straw is when the hospital administrator turns out to be a fiery, ginger-haired American woman. She’s got to go. Or does she?

    Jesus IS the hope of the world and all mankind, if they would only come to HIM with empty Harare and hands. I read this and loved each one!

  2. Penny Mooney

    Jesus is the hope of Christmas and of all mankind. I can’t wait to read this book and find out what happens.

  3. Carol Luciano

    Jesus our Savior. My mom used to say He’s the reason for the season. I give him my all because he gave his life for me, you and everyone. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. Lori R

    The hope of Christmas means coming together with family and praying and believing in only good health and good things for the new year.

  5. I gotta say this is one of the most beautiful picturesque book covers I have ever seen. The white roses, the leaves, the snow with white mountain tops. All so gorgeous.

  6. Janice Moore

    The hope of Christmas means this to me: God sent Jesus to give us humans the only way to have hope in our lives, with love and forgiveness. This hope gives my life my meaning and purpose in life. Thank you, Lord Jesus.

  7. Winnie Thomas

    This book cover is gorgeous and the book sounds wonderful. The hope of Christmas to me is the life of Jesus and his sacrifice for us. It should be our hope throughout the year.

  8. The hope of Christmas is Jesus Christ and that he was born to be our redeemer and later willingly chose to die to save us from the judgment we deserved that He did not. No greater love than this!

  9. Jennifer Hevern

    Hope for all. I believe faith is connected to hope. If you hope for something, surely you believe in it. Faith and hope are both believing without seeing.
