The Christmas Child

By Linda Goodnight


Haunted by a year undercover, Special Units officer Kade McKendrick is exiled to Redemption, Oklahoma, to get his head together. The last thing he wants is to deal with people. But when a mute boy is found in a Dumpster, Kade’s savior complex kicks in. Enter teacher Sophie Bartholomew, a dog named Sheba, and a Christmas crazy town, and cynical Kade may find more than answers for the boy. He may find a happy-ever-after of his own… In Redemption River, where healing flows….

Book Takeaway:

I hope people are entertained, of course, and put into a lovely, hopeful Christmas mood, but on a deeper level, I want them to realize that God loves them no matter where they’ve been or what they’ve done.

Why the author wrote this book:

Christmas is my favorite time of year and Christmas books are favorite reads. But this book came about because of the series I was writing. The series, "Redemption River" was inspired by an actual town I've visited twice during the Christmas holidays. So naturally, the series had to have a Christmas story, and what better theme at Christmastime than that of a small child who brings love and hope and healing?
