Paula Peckham - The Father’s Gift - This story is a continuation of my debut historical romance novel, Protected. I enjoy writing historical fiction, and the collection needed a story from my time frame. I got to know Manny and Abby while writing Protected, and I was eager to follow them through their new life together. (Spoiler alert: In Protected, they fall in love. Sorry to ruin the ending for you, but it is a romance, after all.) In the new story, they look forward to the birth of their first child.
Some other characters from Protected make an appearance, too. We get to see Yaideli, Manny’s grandmother, and Jonathan, Manny’s best friend. If you enjoy Manny and Abby’s story, you can go back to their beginning in Protected, arriving from Elk Lake Publishing, Inc. in March, 2022.
A Christmas Hallelujah - I based this short story on an actual event. My husband, John, and I were traveling, and we were sitting in the gate area, waiting for our flight. People crowded the space, and not a single seat remained open. A woman sat on the floor, leaning against a column. She stared at the floor the entire time, exuding sadness. I watched her for a while, then the Beth Moore story I mentioned popped into my mind. I felt God urging me to go speak to her. So I got up, walked over, kneeled beside her, and asked if she was okay. She told me her father was sick, and she was flying home. We prayed together, then I went back to my seat. I never spoke to her again. From that kernel, I layered the rest of my story around it.
