An Endless Christmas By Cynthia Ruchti 2 Book Giveaway!


Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead
of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love
looks different than either imagined.
Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it
were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend,
Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very
wrong when she says, “no.” Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow,
and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just
enough. Especially when it’s Christmas.

Taking multi-tasking to new heights (or depths, depending on your perspective), Cynthia Ruchti is the award-winning author of recent releases "All My Belongings" (novel), "When the Morning Glory Blooms" (novel), and "Ragged Hope: Surviving the Fallout of Other People's Choices" (nonfiction). She makes potato corn chowder for her husband of 42 years, loves on her three kids and five grandchildren, recently retired from 33 years of writing and producing a daily radio broadcast called THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME, is past president of the 2,700-member American Christian Fiction Writers and now serves as ACFW's Professional Relations Liaison, all while working on more book projects in addition to the eight already on the shelves. The year 2010 saw the release of her debut novel--"They Almost Always Come Home" by Abingdon Press (a Carol Award finalist)--and a Christmas collection novella, "The Heart's Harbor" in A Door County Christmas, a Family Fiction Reader's Choice, by Barbour Publishing. "His Grace is Sufficient...Decaf is Not," released Nov 1, 2011. Another novella collection--"Cedar Creek Seasons" (Barbour) released in spring of 2012. "When the Morning Glory Blooms" (April 2013) was followed by "All My Belongings" (2014, also from Abingdon Press). Her books have recently been honored with two Selah Awards, two Christian Retailing's BEST Awards, and awards from CAN Golden Scrolls and AWSA Golden Scrolls. She tells stories of Hope-that-glows-in-the-dark through writing and speaking, but she gave up knitting, counted cross-stitch, sewing her own clothes, naps, and dusting baseboards a long time ago. You can find her at www.cynthiaruchti.com, at www.facebook.com/cynthiaruchtireaderpage, or in the kitchen, brewing herself another cup of tea.
 
                                                 A MUST READ!!!
I read this book in just a couple of hours and I loved every page.
I was so worried about Micah and Katie but it was all good in the end.
Wish I could spend a Christmas with this family, they were the perfect family we all wish we had.
Just wanted to jump in the pages of this book and never leave.
I gave this book 5 stars but because it was way to short for me and I loved it so much from page one, I wish that is was longer. Based on how short is was. I was left wanting MORE. Cynthia needs to write an Endless book, she is so very talented.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

  6. I hate that it is a short story, I don't think that great authors should be aloud to write novellas. I can't wait to read it.

    1. Chuckling. The publisher specifically wanted a novella length for all the people who feel that they don't have time to sit down and read a full novel during the holidays. I like a full-length novel, too. But I have to say that there was a FULL STORY crammed into the novella pages. And the cover is so captivating!

    1. Good question. Many readers enjoy reading multiple Christmas novels or novellas during the holidays. It may be shorter than a full-length novel but it's longer than a typical novella. We may hear more from these characters in the future.
