In Finding Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn and published by FaithWords (2009), Miranda Carson journeys to England in hopes of finding her father. A photo in her mother’s belongings takes her to the town of Carlton Heath on Christmas Eve. Through the kindness of the residents, Miranda is led on a path of forgiveness and discovery. And, while searching for her earthly father, she develops a relationship with her Heavenly Father and finds a family that she has always longed for.

Miranda returns to England in Engaging Father Christmas to celebrate the holidays with her new family and friends. Miranda hopes that her boyfriend, Ian will ask her to marry him so that they can make a home in Carlton Heath’s Forgotten Rose Cottage. But, complications arise when Ian’s father is taken ill, her beloved cottage has a new owner, and Margaret, her father’s wife doesn’t seem to accept her. Miranda reaches out to share the grace and peace that her Heavenly Father has given her and finds the love she has always wanted.

We are recommending these treasures for women to take a break and enjoy as they prepare for the busy Christmas season. Each chapter can be read in about five minutes. My mom likes reading these novellas  from Robin Jones Gunn and FaithWords  year after year.
