Christmas Valley is turned upside down when an unconventional couple arrive in town ready to deliver a baby in this charming Christmas novella.
The people of Christmas Valley always celebrate Christmas to the fullest extent. The mayor plays Santa, every business is holiday themed, and there's a nativity for the kids each Christmas Eve. This town knows Christmas. But this year nothing goes according to plan. Shepherd's Inn is full of strangers, Mad Myrtle is causing problems, and a young couple with a baby due any minute rolls in to the middle of town in their Partridge Family-style bus. It's hardly the holiday Christmas Valley wanted--but it may be just what they need. This charming novella is sure to become a new Christmas tradition for readers who love a great holiday story.

The author has written an enjoyable uplifting story. When the pastor's wife and others pray for God's guidance, He turns their difficult circumstances into good ends, and their disappointing Christmas becomes a joyous, meaningful Christmas.

This heartwarming short story has a varied cast of characters, some naughty and some nice, and the true meaning of Christmas is the main theme. Without a doubt, the reader will easily compare this modern day story to that of the biblical birth of the Christ child.
