Christmas Advent - Return to Love by Kathleen Shoop

Sweet Romance… Fresh off their whirlwind nuptials and unexpected, but joyous pregnancy, April and Hale Abercrombie are gleeful about their life together. But, while Hale is serving his country in Vietnam, he receives news of the loss of their newborn daughter. 

 Back home on leave, Hale can barely wait to hold his wife. Their reunion is passionate and their physical connection, strong and soothing. His embrace, his touch, and his love are just as perfect as April remembered. But nothing, not even Hale, can ease April’s heartache. 

 Hale stumbles through his attempts at convincing her that their future will be rich and full of wonder despite their loss. His good-hearted, but take-charge approach causes her to retreat. Even in grief, April recognizes Hale’s earnestness, yet she can’t help but distance herself from him. With only a short time before Hale must return to war, the couple begins to understand that hope starts with them—that the bliss they once knew will return only if they are willing to trust again. 

 Set on the beaches of the Outer Banks, Return to Love is the second book in the Endless Love series. Book one, Home Again, was named a finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

Kathleen's Christmas Wish...
"Just to share wonderful, magic moments with family. I love the lead up to Christmas more than anything."

Funniest Christmas Memory...
"My funniest Christmas moment was when my older brother, my sister and I pretended to be elves so our little brother would think Santa was real and that he had helpers watching him all the time. We made beards of cotton balls and dressed in robes and hats--it was a success--he believed. A close second was when we did a rendition of the Christmas story and used that same little brother as baby Jesus--he was probably 6 months old--we put him in a doll cradle and as we were all reading our parts, he crashed through the bottom, adding levity to a serious tale!"  

Favorite Pantomime to watch at Christmas...
"Has to be Cinderella."
