A Little Online Love

Check out the love that River North Fiction is getting from Publishers Weekly and Romantic Times! A Marriage Carol is our Christmas novella that was written by Chris Fabry and Gary Chapman that will be released in September. Just in time to get a head start on your stocking-stuffers or small gift ideas.


A Marriage Carol
Chris Fabry & Gary Chapman. Moody/River North, $14.99 (128p) ISBN 978-0-8024-0264-6 
Christmas Eve marks Jacob and Marlee Ebenezer’s wedding anniversary and, 20 years later, the official dissolution of their marriage. Their journey to sign the divorce papers, however, turns into much more when a blizzard and an accident threaten lives. Marlee finds safety in a farmhouse where “Jay” helps her see her past, present, and future and offers a new way of seeing herself, husband, and marriage. The authors seamlessly blend the cleansing qualities of snow (“Melting snow exposes. Each flake is like a choice we make”) with transparent reference to Dickens’s A Christmas Carol to create a challenging yet heartwarming tale that will touch readers long beyond the holiday season. This novella—combining the storytelling prowess of Fabry (Almost Heaven) and the marriage expertise of Chapman (The Five Love Languages series)—will change lives with its message “that there is great power in small choices.” Chapman’s afterword and discussion questions deepen the impact. This is a tiny book with a huge message. (Sept.)

Romantic Times gave Lone Star Trail, the first book of the Texas Trails Series, a nice review!
“The first book in Franklin’s Texas Trail series, is both uplifting and heartwrenching. It is a story that is filled with tragedy, heartache, compassion, understanding and touching romance.”
You all know that there are six books in the series and they were written by the fantastic team of Darlene Franklin, Susan Page Davis, and Vickie McDonough.
