  • (1888PressRelease) November 22, 2012 - When it comes to writing about wholesome, small town USA that makes readers want to pack their bags and move there, none does it better than Award Winning author, Katherine Valentine. Her newest book, The Christmas Journal is certain to strike a chord in all of those saddened by the commercialism that has seeped into the holiday season.

    The Christmas Journal begins with high school teacher, Bob Parson who has just discovered that all mention of his favorite season, Christmas has been banned by the school board. This coupled by his students display of seal-absorbed behavior, makes Parson decide to disguise the lost meaning of Christmas through a civics project that will have far greater impact than he could ever have imagined.

    After cashing out his cherished fly-fishing rod savings account, Bob gives each student fifty dollars and the assignment to find someone with a need and to meet that need.

    Student, Alan McGowan decides to help the director of a neighboring homeless center that is about to be closed. The downtown restoration project wants to shut down the shelter to make room for high end shops and the man running the project is Ray's estranged son, David.

    20 years ago, Ray had been asked to leave as pastor of the Abiding Faith Church, when he refused to divulge how church funds had gone missing in order to save a friend. The decision cost him both his career and his son.

    As with all of Valentine's novels, readers will come away wishing that they, too, lived in this fictional town. The Christmas Journal is a perfect gift and feel-good read just in time for the Christmas holidays.
