Christmas Fun! Author Gloria Repp Giveaway Sponsor Spotlight

Today let's visit with author Gloria Repp.

Adventure, mystery, and wild creatures all play a part in Gloria Repp's many books for children and adults. She grew up in the Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Northwest, and it was there she learned a love for wilderness that pervades her stories. The pine forests, tumbled ruins, and gleaming dark streams of the New Jersey Pine Barrens provided her with both inspiration and setting as she wrote The Forever Stone.

Gloria's Featured Book is The Forever Stone:

"Don’t bury yourself in that wilderness!” her relatives say. “Even though you’re a widow, you're still young.”

No matter what they think, Madeleine decides to go. She’ll help her aunt restore the old house; she’ll sign up for an online baking course; and she’ll bury—yes, bury—those terrible memories. “From now on,” she tells herself, “I’m going to be strong and independent.”

Her plan seems to be working, except for the panic attacks, until she has to deflect the attentions of two men.

The doctor, who has a fire-scarred past, is not upset by her panic attacks and knows he can help her to heal. The writer, who conceals more than one secret, admires her spirit and is certain that she needs him.

God uses both men and her father’s gift of a floral paperweight to remind her of His enduring “forever love,” and as she yields to Him, she finds the courage to take a new and challenging path. 

Let's Get Personal! Gloria, what was your favorite Christmas gift you remember receiving as a child?

The Christmas gift I remember with the most affection was a book. My aunt, a tiny, fierce person with a shrill voice of whom I was painfully afraid, gave me Anne of Green Gables. I will always remember its beautiful dust jacket and smooth pages and mysterious bookish fragrance. And the story! Anne’s experiences took me on a journey through glittering worlds from which I have never fully recovered. 

Gloria shares one of her favorite Christmas desserts, Triple-Ginger Chocolate Cookies, on her Pinterest board. Come peek at it here:
