THE CHRISTMAS SHOPPE
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
This magical Christmas story is filled with anticipation, holiday traditions and delight. The mystery of oddball Matilda and her store fuels the plot. What happens as the town gets to know her and they learn not to judge based on appearances is a true gift for the readers.
There are mixed emotions when Matilda Honeycutt moves to Parrish Springs and buys an abandoned building on Main Street. When she opens a junky-looking thrift store, the community seems ready to run her out of town. But as people start shopping there and get to know her they find that the mystery of the shop brings old memories and surprising hope to their lives. (REVELL, Sep., 176 pp., $15.99)
