Christian Fiction Anthology Spotlight with Author Sharyn Kopf

Cold Read

by Sharyn Kopf
All Stephie Graham wanted was to direct The Rainmaker at the historic Holland Theatre in Bellefontaine, Ohio. She didn’t plan to fall in love with her leading man.
And then there’s Juniper, who sang about her broken heart at the Holland seventy years before. Is she now the theatre ghost trying to keep Stephie and Andy apart … or bring them together?
Perhaps God has a plan for both women that goes beyond what either could imagine!

Christmas Angels

by Carole Brown
Her mother called her a failure, and maybe she was. Her husband was gone—in the service, yes, but if he loved her—really loved her, why didn’t he write? Or call? Or send the money she needed?

She was scared too, afraid of being alone, and though she loved this sweet little bundle of joy—her baby—well, was she smart enough and strong enough to raise her? She didn’t mind doing without all the nice things she’d love to have, but not being able to provide luxuries like Christmas trees, ornaments and presents for her baby girl was beyond enduring.

What she needed was a miracle…and that wasn’t going to happen.

Mist O’er the Voyageur

by Naomi Musch

After her aunt’s death, Métis woman Brigitte Marchal finds herself alone in Montreal. Uninterested in the convent and desperate to flee a loathsome suitor, she disguises herself as a young man to travel west by voyageurs’ brigade in search of her long-absent, fur-trader father. But her inexperience and disguise don’t hide her for long.

René Dufour yields to the unwelcome position of shielding Brigitte, but he cannot hide her identity forever. Keeping her safe while meeting his North West Company obligations and honoring his family promises may prove to be more disquieting to his heart than he imagined.

As Brigitte adjusts to the voyageur life on Lake Superior, she struggles to justify the faith she grew up in with the mysticism around her, but greater still is the conflict her heart must settle over who to trust in this rugged, unfamiliar country.
