When I had the opportunity to receive a review copy of this book, I knew I wanted to. Mainly because one of my favorite authors wrote one of these novellas. I wasn’t disappointed by her book. The others… Well, one was rather disappointing and the other two were only fairly good. I loved how the brooch fit in to every story. Continue reading →

I neglected to tell my faithful blog followers something. But I’m rectifying that now. Not only that, but I have a fun event to share with you as well. Various authors have banded together for a massive Christmas in July Blog Party. To see the giveaways and sales from each author and enter the main giveaway, check the end of this post.
Part three of my Christmas story. If you haven’t read part one and part two, please do so before reading this section.
The Halberg’s spent the next few hours in prayer as other people drifted in and out waiting for their own family members and then leaving to visit their injured.
Three hours after arriving, a doctor came in. “Are you Virginia Halberg’s family?”
Mr. Halberg stood. “Yes, we are.” He looked around the room. No one else was there.
“Won’t you please sit back down?” the doctor asked. “I’m Doctor Rodgers.” When they were all seated, he spoke again, “We did everything we could, but the bullet must have ricocheted. When it entered her body, it went in multiply places, including a piece that lodged an eighth of an inch from her heart. I left that one for last, but by then, she was gone. I’m sorry. The only consolation I can give you is that she died with a smile on her face. I’m not sure why…”
Margaret beamed. “That would be because she saw Jesus.”
Today, Wednesday, and Friday, I am posting three parts of a short story I wrote for Christmas. It’s a very different type of Christmas story, but I hope you enjoy it.
How Great our Joy!
