Waiting for His Return Release Day!

Hi Friends, It’s release day for Waiting for His Return! I’m excited to share this heartwarming holiday novella with you, and I have a special giveaway to celebrate the book launch. The story is set in Nashville, Tennessee, during the Civil War. The hero is British-born artist, James Galloway, who travels with the Union troops drawing battle scenes that are sent back to Harper’s Weekly Illustrated Newspaper.

When James is attacked and left for dead at the side of the road near the Thornton’s home, Rachel Thornton takes him in and uses the skills she has learned from her physician father to save James’s life. Her father, sister, and two loyal servants also lend a hand. But the battlefront is moving closer to Nashville, and with it, increasing danger for James, Rachel, and her family.

James and Rachel grow closer as he recovers, but he has a commitment to fulfill for Harpers Weekly. Rachel has already lost one man she loves, and she is reluctant to give her heart to another man who may soon become a casualty of the war. 

With Christmas coming, Rachel waits for news from James. Will he find his way back to her, or will she be left waiting for his return?

 Waiting for His Return was originally published in A Blue and Gray Christmas and was a finalist for the ACFW Carol Award. It has been revised and updated for new readers to enjoy. The eBook is available on Amazon for $2.99 for a limited time. Download your copy today and start reading to enjoy this story!

To celebrate the launch of Waiting for His Return I’m offering a special giveaway for my reading friends!  The gifts include two adult coloring books, drawing pencils, and fine line markers, plus an Oh Holy Night Gift Set with mug, plate, tote bag, bookmark, pen, and devotional book. To enter the giveaway just share this post on social media or with a friend via email, then leave a comment below, telling me where you shared it. The winner will be chosen Monday, November 13th and notified by email. Thanks for helping me celebrate and spread the word about Waiting for His Return!

****Thanks for stopping by! The winner has been chosen – Jeanie Dannheim – and the giveaway has closed. Happy Reading, Carrie

    Hi, I have forwarded your email to my distribution list. it would be a great Christmas gift to many including those in nursing homes and assisted livings where they do have them color for activities. I also have books for coloring as I enjoyed doing that with Mom in the Assisted living and they gave me sheets to take home and do. I have colored pencils and pens. I also make my own cards and color them in. It is relaxing and you can do whatever colors you choose.
