Colors of Christmas: Two Contemporary Stories Celebrate the Hope of Christmas by Olivia Newport

34380832Colors of Christmas: Two Contemporary Stories Celebrate the Hope of Christmas

My Thoughts:
Both Novellas are fantastic! Newport writes about topics that I think we all can sink our teeth in and say "this is what Christmas is truly about."Between loss and grief, can you find hope? Does Christmas have a way of helping those heal in the midst of difficult circumstances? Or can you imagine the loss of your friend who loved Christmas and what would you do without them? How do you get through the hard times? In both of these novella's the characters face difficult circumstances, but ultimately they find hope! These are two heart-warming stories that will show you the true meaning of Christmas. I give this book 4.5/ 5 stars. A favorable review was not required.

Olivia NewportAbout the Author:
I’m imagining you. You walk past as I water my front flowerbeds and we wave. You check the time as we both stand in a long line at the grocery store. You sit in front of me in church. I’m at my table in the coffee shop and you’re at yours.

We may smile politely and move on with our separate lives. Or one of us may speak, a simple invitation to conversation, and the words flow between us.

Here the adventure begins. When we meet someone new, we never know where it might lead.

I’ve been married for over thirty years and have two twenty-something kids. We live in stunning Colorado at the foot of the Rockies, where the day lilies in my back yard grow as tall as I am. (No short jokes, please.)

Not every piece of my life is pretty, though. Some days I want to throw out whole chunks. But I am living each day looking for the grace of God to me, in me, and through me. Having your companionship along the way will help uncover a lot of great stories.
