I'm giving away One Holy Night to celebrate it's release this month!

This exciting story has just been released. Trust me, you will want to read it. Just make sure to leave me a way to contact you if you win. I endorsed this book. It's emotionally gripping and a real page-turner. And it's not just a "Christmas story" even though the title sort of implies that. This story is awesome to read any time of the year. Best wishes!



About the book:

Slumped in his easy chair in the darkened living room, Frank McRae stared at the television screen, raw images of war exploding in his head long after the news had finally ended, replaced by an inane sitcom. The grainy black-and-white video of battle-weary troops slogging through the sodden rice paddies and shadowy jungles of Viet Nam ate away at his heart like sulfuric acid.

There was nothing left of his life now but the bitterness and the pain that were tearing him apart. The silence in this house that had once been a cherished home, rich with happiness and love, was deafening. He was drowning in it the same way he’d seen sailors thrown from a torpedoed ship drown in the hostile, oily waters of the South Pacific during that other war more than twenty years earlier.

Always another war. Always more purposeless killing, senseless dying, and fractured relationships that couldn’t seem to be put back together again. If there really was a God, why had he let this happen? What kind of God would tear from a man those dearest to him?

None of it made any sense. The Bible spoke of a God of love and mercy, but for all Frank could tell, God remained indifferent to suffering. When one needed help the most, God turned his back. Surely the Bible was nothing but a hollow myth.

What Frank doesn’t know is that on this bleak Christmas Eve, God has in mind a miracle. Once more, as on that holy night so long ago, a baby will be born and laid in a manger—a baby who will bring forgiveness, peace, and healing to a family that has suffered heart-wrenching loss.
