Romance, Adventure, Suspense
The novel has the theme of searching. There is a search to regain a snapshot in time as well as searches to belong. Being hurt and excluded in our pasts are heavy burdens to carry. Living with our eye on the past prevents us from enjoying the present. We need to give our burdens and our pasts to the One who can make all things new.
This links to the theme of trust. After a crime is committed, suspicion needs to find an outlet. As the net widens and more ‘coincidences’ of bad luck happen, the question of trust looms large.
Sometimes we want to step backwards and live a ‘safe’ life. God does not want us to settle for ‘safe’, He wants us to place our lives in His hands and trust Him to guide us through all the seasons of life.
Names are important. The use of a nickname signifies warmth and closeness, giving an air of belonging. There are some delightful dialogue exchanges between the lead characters.
Lost Christmas Memories has something for everyone – romance, adventure and suspense. Grab a copy today. You will not be disappointed.
