Christmas Extravaganza – Star Song/The Nutcracker Bride/Christmas Treasures


Star SongStar Song

by Katheryn Maddox Haddad

Book 1 of Soul Journey With Jesus

Written for everyone who has ever doubted.

Mary was too young, Elizabeth too old, Joseph too gullible, the shepherds too smelly, Anna too senile, Simeon too idealistic, Salome too flippant.  The wise men should have minded their own business, Zachariah should have accepted he’d never have a child.  King Herod dared control God, the Bible scholars dared interpret God.

Come meet the people who met Jesus.  You are one of them  Probably you are several of them. Go ahead  and struggle with him as they did.  Laugh. Cry.  Do mental battle with him.  Emotional battle too.  Fight for your faith as they fought. Pause to listen for what you’ve never heard before.  Then touch Jesus.

This is the story of faith in the impossible.   Hope in the inconceivable.  Love for the invincible.  It is the dreams of youth, the desperations of infirmity, the hopes of age, and the song of eternity.

Follow the suspense as each person in Jesus’ life comes to terms with who they are, and who Jesus is.  Jesus accepts them as they are.  But can they accept themselves as they are?  More than that, can they accept Jesus as he is?  Both God and man?  Both Creator and created?  Both King and servant?

It is the story of doubts explained away, animosities melted away, misunderstandings cleared away.  It is your story and mine.  For deep within each of us is everyone who ever met and struggled with Jesus.

by Margaret Brownley

It was just his luck to meet up with a trigger happy damsel.

Kansas, 1880

While Lucy Langdon is gathering nuts a handsome stranger throws a mysterious bag into her wagon. She later discovers it’s full of money. Now Texas Ranger Chad Prescott is determined to recover the bag he left in her wagon for safe-keeping.  Thinking he’s a prowler, Lucy accidentally shoots him and now has to nurse him back to health.  Waking up in a house full of German nutcrackers is rather disconcerting for this lawman, but not as troublesome as falling for the annoying yet ultimately intriguing lady baker.

New York Times best-selling author Margaret Brownley has penned nearly forty novels. Her books have won numerous awards, including Readers’ Choice and Award of Excellence. She’s a former Romance Writers of American RITA® finalist and has written for a TV soap. She is currently working on a new series. Not bad for someone who flunked eighth grade English. Just don’t ask her to diagram a sentence.
