Prodigal (A Christian Novel)
Dana McKinley is sick and tired. It’s hard to admit but she’s fed up of church, church friends, and even God. Walking the straight and narrow has never got her anywhere, especially not with the guys, and it’s about time she made some changes! However, as she sacrifices her convictions and reinvents herself in order to be accepted, she realises that there is a price to pay. And it’s high. Her new friends pressure and influence her, and of course her new boyfriend wants her to do everything she knows she shouldn’t. The party lifestyle isn’t fun, and alcohol only makes her feel wretched. After a series of terrible mistakes, Dana has an experience that may be the wake up call she needs. But has she already gone too far? Is she already too hardened? Can this Prodigal be redeemed?
Aunt Crete’s Emancipation
WHO’S at the front door?“ asked Luella’s mother, coming in from the kitchen with a dish-towel in her hand. ”I thought I heard the door-bell.”
“Luella’s gone to the door,” said her sister from her vantage-point at the crack of the sitting-room door. “It looks to me like a telegraph boy.”
“It couldn’t be, Crete,” said Luella’s mother impatiently, coming to see for herself. “Who would telegraph now that Hannah’s dead?”
Lucretia was short and dumpy, with the comfortable, patient look of the maiden aunt that knows she is indispensable because she will meekly take all the burdens that no one else wants to bear. Her sister could easily look over her head into the hall, and her gaze was penetrative and alert.
“I’m sure I don’t know, Carrie,” said Lucretia apprehensively; “but I’m all of a tremble. Telegrams are dreadful things.”
The fiery, impetuous Melody Laurent, a recent transplant from Great Britain with a weakness for American cowboy movies and a secret panache for fencing, is completely smitten by the dark good looks of her neighbor Avery Knight, and is soon cooking up schemes (as well as sweets) to get his attention. Avery, a Southern Oregon boy most comfortable with his cowboy hat, boots and a disobedient pup named Barney, is a local fireman still smarting from a failed romance with the wrong girl. When Melody enters his life, he spends more time trying to rescue her from scrapes than putting out fires. They might discover they need God in control of their love life, whether chasing after or running from each other. (Christian romance novella)
