Christmas Hotel

Christmas Hotel

by Saundra Staats McLemore

It’s December, 1941 and Jerilyn Marlene Seifert receives the dreaded telegram she’s prayed she’d never have to read. Her Navy husband Ken has perished in the bombing at Pearl Harbor.

Devastated, she boards a train for Nashville, to meet her husband’s estranged family, but at a train stop along the way she discovers to her horror her purse has been stolen. Now widowed, four months pregnant, and penniless, Jerilyn finds herself stranded in Franklin, Kentucky — a complete stranger. Terrified for her future, she must learn to trust again. But is that even possible?

Jerilyn drifted from the Lord years ago, and she feels unworthy to ask Him for help, until she stumbles upon a mysterious diary that will change her life forever. The compelling secrets at Christmas Hotel unleash emotions Jerilyn thought had died with her husband.

 Christmas for Lucy

Christmas for Lucy

by Saundra Staats McLemore

 

Lucy’s eighth birthday is December first, 1954, the same day her mama dies leaving her an orphan. Lucy’s cruel uncle and aunt throw her out of the apartment in Bowling Green, Kentucky she had shared with her mama, and into the street.

 

That night, cold and alone, Lucy prays to the baby Jesus lying in the manger of the Nativity scene in front of the Methodist church. She cries out for His help, protection, and love. Later, she drifts into a restless sleep, huddled near the fountain in Fountain Square Park. In the night, Lucy awakens shivering, but a huge dog lies down beside her and keeps her warm.

 

The next morning, she meets an old man, and the dog and the old man help her in her search for someone to love her and keep her safe.

 

Christmas for Lucy is available at www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, and www.desertbreezepublishing.com.
