A collection of three novellas celebrating the beauty of Christmas at Grace Chapel Inn. It s Christmas morning, and as the Howard sisters celebrate some of their family s treasured traditions, they reminisce about Christmases past. Jane reads from the Bible, as their father always did, and remembers when she took part in a living Nativity. Cast as an angel, she decided to make her part more exciting, resulting in a dangerous fall from a hayloft. She should have been seriously injured, but a Christmas miracle changed the course of her life. Louise studies the badly constructed stocking she made for her newborn daughter Cynthia and recalls her first Christmas as a mother. And Alice examines the special ornament she received the year she organized a program to give all the animals from a nearby shelter a home for Christmas. The novellas capture a sense of nostalgia and the ideal of a good old-fashioned Christmas.

With high hopes, Daphne Ballinger lands her dream job at The New York Times. But it's not long until writing about weddings becomes a painful reminder of her own failed romance, and her love of the city slowly sours as well. Is it time to give up the Big Apple for her small hometown of Appleton? When her eccentric Aunt Dee passes away and leaves a sizeable estate to Daphne, going back home is an easy choice. What isn’t easy is coming to terms with the downright odd clauses written into the will. Daphne only stands to inherit the estate if she agrees to her aunt's very specific posthumous terms -- personal and professional. And if she fails to comply, the sprawling old Victorian house shall be bequeathed to . . . Aunt Dee’s cats. And if Daphne thinks that’s odd, wait until she finds out an array of secrets about Aunt Dee's life, and how imperfect circumstances can sometimes lead to God's perfect timing.

Grace Trey is an eighteen-year-old singer as passionate about her Christian faith as she is her phenomenal, God-given musical talent. Both traits come from her father, one-hit wonder Johnny Tray who found Jesus after losing his chart success two decades ago. When Grace encounters her own music break of a lifetime, the sudden dive into the "real world" puts her deeper beliefs to the test. Pop superstardom is just within reach but appears to require some spiritual compromise. Will Grace reject her faith, or will she own it? Grace Unplugged is based on the motion picture of the same name starring AJ Michalka (Super 8) and Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men).

Essayist and newspaper columnist Fanny Fern enjoyed a rapid -- and highly unlikely -- rise to fame after an early life beset by tragedy and misfortune. Soon after accepting the position that established her as the highest-paid female writer in the United States, Fern began work on Ruth Hall, a highly autobiographical novel that paralleled her own life experiences in many regards. Today, scholars and critics agree that the novel is an exceptionally well-written exploration of what life as a female literary icon was like in the late nineteenth century.

A collection of three novellas celebrating the beauty of Christmas at Grace Chapel Inn. As the three Howard sisters gather around the fire on Christmas Eve, they reminisce about their favorite Christmas memories. Louise shares about one snowy Christmas in 1951 when the young Howard sisters, visiting their newlywed Aunt Ethel's farm with their mother and father, witnessed the birth of a lamb on a snowy Christmas Eve. Alice talks about the year when she got stuck running the children's Christmas musical at Grace Chapel and couldn't have done it without the help of her sisters. And Jane reminisces about the year, just after the sisters all moved home and opened Grace Chapel Inn, that she organized a Christmas cookie drive for shut-ins that ended up teaching the whole town a lesson about generosity.
