This week I wanted to share something "Christmasy," but I have no Christmas books, so went with a few lines that deal with a surprising secret wish. This is from In the Arms of a Stranger. My heroine, Abby, has helped my hero, JP, who's on the run, and now wants answers only he can give her about her late husband. JP's gotten to know Abby and her son as he's hidden in Abby's barn. This is from chapter 4:
They walked through the barn, a calico cat winding between their legs, making it impossible for them to hurry. Abby bent and lifted the cat, whispered something to her and put her back down with a gentle rub down her back.
This was his chance. He could walk away. She’d never find him.
Instead, JP watched mother and child walk out of the barn into the bright light of day, refusing to think about what pushed at the edges of what he suddenly wished for.
Comments are welcome!
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Hope you enjoy the Christmas tree picture, below.
This is the "book" Christmas tree from my library. One of our (very patient and talented) student assistants did this. Look closely and you'll see microfilm running down the sides.
