3 Titles That Might Tempt You In The Holiday Season


On November 8th, James Kimmel offers us The Trial of Fallen Angels. Brek Cuttler believes she has the perfect life: a husband she loves, a baby she adores and a profitable law practice. One day she walks into a store with her daughter to pick up some milk and suddenly finds herself on a deserted train platform covered with blood. A man walks up to her and tells her she has been assigned to the special team that prosecutes and defends the souls of the dead on Judgment Day. Apparently there are very few all good or all bad people and the rest of us have to present a case as to why our lives should be valued. This story really makes us look at ourselves and at how we define justice. The author is a lawyer specializing in the intersection of law and spirituality.

A favorite author of many gives us another look at the holiday spirit, Jennifer Chiaverini offers The Giving Quilt: An Elm Creek Quilts Novel on October 30. It has us consider what would happen if we practiced a giving holiday spirit year round. At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is “Quiltsgiving,” a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters—a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt-shop clerk among them—gather for a special winter session of quilt camp, to make quilts for Project Linus. 

Sal Lizard’s hair turned white when he was in his 20’s and when he grew a beard, that was white too. What else could he do? He became Santa. On November  8th, he publishes Being Santa – a compilation of his 20 years of being Santa year round.  He shares his tales of true holiday spirit and his trips to malls and hospitals, often heartwarming, occasionally heartbreaking and sometimes hysterically funny. If this doesn’t get you in the holiday spirit – I don’t know what will.
