Today debut author Fay Alter stops by to share her inspiration for her holiday novella “Second Chance Chanukah” — and gives RT readers a peek at the new release!
If you’re like me, an avid romance reader, you no doubt enjoy a good holiday romance during the winter months. There’s just something particularly heartwarming about these tales whether the faith element is overt or not. Inevitably, though, at some point around the holidays a reader will ask, “Ok, I really loved Book X, but where are the Chanukah stories?”
The problem is that while several Chanukah romances have been published over the years, most notably Judith Arnold’s Sweet Light (Harlequin American, 1992), romances set around the Jewish Festival of Lights (or any other Jewish holiday) are few and far between. This was one of the reasons I decided to write my Chanukah novella, “Second Chance Chanukah”. I wanted a story along the lines of those I love to read, which celebrated my Jewish heritage. And while this is a Jewish story, it is accessible to non-Jewish readers as well.
