CFBA: Love Blooms In Winter by Lori Copeland

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:

Love Blooms in Winter

Harvest House Publishers (January 1, 2012)


Lori Copeland


Runaway trains, a batty neighbor with more dogs than sense, an elephant and a love story. Who would have thought that all of those could wind themselves together in a story that would make sense? Lori Copelad did, and she added a whole lot more, only if I listed it, you wouldn't believe me. Plus, it kind of ruins all the surprises. That was half the fun of reading this book. The romance was fun and sweet and the message of faith is strong, but the people really do make the story come to life.


A romantic new book from bestselling author Lori Copeland that portrays God’s miraculous provision even when none seems possible.

1892—Mae Wilkey’s sweet next-door neighbor, Pauline, is suffering from old age and dementia and desperately needs family to come help her. But Pauline can’t recall having kin remaining. Mae searches through her desk and finds a name—Tom Curtis, who may just be the answer to their prayers.

Tom can’t remember an old aunt named Pauline, but if she thinks he’s a long-lost nephew, he very well may be. After two desperate letters from Mae, he decides to pay a visit. An engagement, a runaway train, and a town of quirky, loveable people make for more of an adventure than Tom is expecting. But it is amazing what can bloom in winter when God is in charge of things.

Lori lives in the beautiful Ozarks with her husband Lance. Lance and Lori have three sons, three daughter-in-laws, and six wonderful grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters. Lance and Lori are very involved in their church, and active in supporting mission work in Mali, West Africa.

Lori began her writing career in 1982, writing for the secular book market. In 1995, after many years of writing, Lori sensed that God was calling her to use her gift of writing to honor Him. It was at that time that Lori began writing for the Christian book market. To date, she has had over 100 books published.
