Book Preview: "Christmas Notes"
Things have not quite gone as planned for Max Fox. After leaving his father’s company under damaging circumstances, he finally found regained pride in a new job. Now, because of the failing economy, that job is gone too. To top off the last two years, he learned that he and his wife, Jenny, are unable to have children, and their relationship has been on a decline ever since. Still, this Christmas, he and Jenny decided to bring an orphan home for the holidays. Seanna, with her dimply smile and interesting way of communicating, just might give them the help they need to understand what is most important in life, not only for this time of the year, but also for all year long. Seanna, who was left an orphan and unable to speak due to a horrific accident, writes simple one-word notes from her favorite stories to pass out to people who are in need of a small life-changing message. Through her notes, she spreads the Christmas spirit of gratitude, hope, family, and love and helps Max to heal his relationships with his wife, parents, and humanity. While spending his days with her, Max is able to help her heal her wounds by learning the fate of her family, of the young boy who saved her from the accident, and of the wish that she wants most of all; a new family.
Impeccably written with a perfect blend of dialogue and narration, Clint G. Cox brings to his audience a truly classic story, original and humble, yet simultaneously strong and memorable. Seanna is introduced as a 5 year old orphan, having lost her family in a horrific car accident, being the only survivor; saved by the heroism of a young boy who witnessed the crash and risked his own life to pull her from the fiery wreckage. A year has gone by and she lives in an orphanage, because the authorities cannot find any information about her family; the wreck destroyed all evidence of identification. Also lost was Seanna’s voice, due to the strain of the seatbelt across her chest, leaving her with a visible scar.
