Christmas at Whispering Creek

By Barbara M. Britton


All Samantha Williams wants to do is to use her teaching degree to instruct a classroom of second graders. But, after a breast cancer diagnosis at the age of twenty-three, and failed reconstruction surgery, Sam finds herself without a job and temporarily living with her parents. This isn't the life Sam expected. When a family friend dies and leaves Sam a house and land in Whispering Creek, Tennessee, Sam must decide if leaving Wisconsin for Southern living is in her lesson plans.

Nashville native, Cole Donoven, left his family' s electrical business to write country music. When Cole' s song-writing partner and girlfriend dumps him for a country music star, Cole abandons Nashville to hole up in Whispering Creek and compose one more song. The last thing Cole expects to find in the sleepy small town is a deceased friend, estate squabbles, and a Northern beauty. Will the chaos in Whispering Creek help create a bestselling song for Cole and possibly help him find a life-long collaborator?

Book Takeaway:

The theme verses for this book come from Philippians. Verses that got me through a rough time with cancer.
Philippians 4:13: "I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."
Philippians 4:6-7, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Why the author wrote this book:

I am a six-year breast cancer survivor. More and more women at younger ages are being diagnosed with breast cancer. I thought it would be fun to write a Christmas story and I felt called to place a breast cancer thread in the story. I also shared my cancer journey at the end of the book. Don't worry. There is plenty of romance, humor, and action in this book--even with the mention of cancer.
