Can a chance meeting lead to true love? Or does love not always find a way?
With the holidays quickly approaching and not enough money to even stay caught up on bills, Amanda takes a second job at Northtown Mall in the heart of Spokane, Washington. What was originally thought of as just an extra paycheck turns out to be much more when she meets a man who might just be an answer to her prayers.
Nate’s heart has grown weary of never seeing his daughter, Sydney, since he moved away after his divorce over two years ago. Taking an extended trip to spend quality time with his daughter, he hopes to inspire her to return to church and start taking the right steps in her life. What was only meant to be a trip to see his daughter turns into much more after one fateful night at the mall.
“Until Christmas” is a story of two hearts molded and shaped by the Master Potter in the most unlikely of places and blessed by the greatest love of all. Join Amanda and Nate as they navigate God’s will in their lives.
my point of view:
The Potter’s House series has become a favorite of mine, and I am sorry to say I have never read a book by this author prior to this one! I was very excited to get this review copy of this story! I have heard many good things about TK Chapin, and I was not disappointed in the least!
Nate and Amanda meet at a very strange time in each of their lives. While Amanda is having financial issues and trying to “a big girl” about it, Nate is dealing with being so far from his daughter and her daily life. Amanda ends up taking a second job, and Nate is getting more and more frustrated with his employment. When Nate ‘forgets’ his daughter’s birthday gift, he is forced to go shopping at the last minute and enlists Amanda’s help in selecting presents. I said ‘forgets’ in quotes, because to me, this is just such a God thing!
Even though they each have their own struggles they are working through, both of them rely heavily on their faith in God to see them through the good and the hard! This was a great thing to see in a novel today, so many times one of the main characters may not be a believer, or is having an issue with trusting God. This story definitely has both the hero and heroine depending deeply on their relationship with Jesus and stepping out in faith in several ways!
I am so grateful for having had the opportunity to read this lovely story, and I look forward to reading more of TK Chapin!
