June Foster & Christmas at Raccoon Creek

We're happy to have June Foster with us today talking about Christmas at Raccoon Creek. To learn more about June and her book, read on!

From the cover:
Emily Eason wants to distance herself from her parents' opulent lifestyle in Birmingham, Alabama, and enjoy life in the tiny rural village, Raccoon Creek and her fifties-style home. But after gazing into the little snow globe she purchased from Hardwicke's Drugs and Gifts, she finds herself transported to another time—her grandmother's era.

Lance Hardwicke is the pharmacist and owner of Hardwicke's Drugs. Four years of pharmacy school didn't allow for much of a social life. Gorgeous Emily Eason, nurse and resident of Raccoon Creek, has captured his attention more than once. The next time she comes in the store, he's determined to ask her out. Perhaps go to Birmingham to see the Christmas lights in his brand new orange and white '53 Pontiac Pathfinder.

Can love span the fifty-year gap standing between them?


Christmas at Raccoon Creek
Christmas at Raccoon Creek is a light Christmas read, but there's also some time travel going on. Let your imagination run wild and envision a modern day woman who's propelled back in time to her grandmother's era. But to make things tricky, she falls in love with a gorgeous pharmacist. Only thing, he lives in 1950, so when she returns to present day, he's an elderly gentleman.
In keeping with my other novels, I wanted Christmas in Raccoon Creek to conveys a spiritual theme. But what Biblical truth could a time travel story possibly communicate? After only the third chapter, I knew. God's Word transcends the decades and the years. Hebrews 13:8 says "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
Please allow me to share my back cover blurb, and I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
