This Christmas, Two Lost and Broken Families Need Restoration.
Sam Jarrett was just starting to explore spiritual things when his world was shattered. Now, he's completely turned his back on God. Laura Preston is a devoted believer, leaning heavily on her faith to get her through each tortured day.
Two Chance Meetings Spark a Friendship and a Glimmer of Hope.
Sam battles God’s prodding through Laura’s gentle, caring spirit. When another tragedy strikes on Christmas Eve, Sam is sure that God has completely deserted him. Laura tries to show Sam that God loves him and has been there all the time, but how can Sam trust when he has no faith?
A New Hope for Christmas is a story of restored faith in a God who never leaves us, even when we can’t see or feel Him near.
A beautiful story of hope and healing from brokenness.
I absolutely loved this story. It is well-written, heartwarming, and thought-provoking. Laura and Sam are both struggling to get through the Christmas season after losing their spouses. Their paths first cross in a cemetery. Laura’s daughter, Kerrie is quite taken with Sam’s young son, Oliver, and his dog, Sunny. Laura searches to find peace and healing through God and her church. Sam wants nothing to do with church or a God who would take away the love of his life. But as their paths continue to cross, Sam sees in Laura a hope that he lacks. A friendship built on shared loss develops between them. But how will they both react when loss once again threatens them? A New Hope for Christmas is an uplifting and encouraging story that reminds us how much we are loved. It is the perfect story to add meaning and encouragement to your Christmas season. This is the first book I’ve read by Erin Stevenson, and I can’t wait to read others.
If you’re the type of reader who loves a good, therapeutic cry, then grab your box of tissues and a copy of A New Hope for Christmas. I was unprepared for the emotions this story stirred inside of me and I found myself dripping with tears several times.
Talk about a tug at the heart strings story. I alternately smiled and cried through this one. Laura and Sam haven’t had an easy year and this Christmas is set to be the hardest yet. But Christmas is a time for hope.
A really lovely story.
