Christmas From the Heart features local story, author

Christmas From the Heart is a new book featuring a collection of non-traditional romance stories including “Baby in the Barn” by Roanoke author, PeggySue Wells.

In Wells’ story, meet the innkeeper who moved to the country, got a barn and had her own birth in the stable. “Part of the story is based on my family’s experience with a pregnant paint mare the children purchased with their winnings from the Huntington 4-H fair,” she said. “Classie was a beloved horse who competed frequently in the Huntington 4-H horse and pony show. I will always remember the unparalleled wonder the morning I went to the barn and discovered the new baby we waited for had been born.”

Classie’s participation in the church’s Christmas pageant is another part of the story. “Christmas from the Heart is a reminder that despite age, place or past,” Wells said, “love, hope, and redemption are possible because God first loved us.”

A longtime resident of Roanoke, Wells is the author of 30 books including The Ten Best Decisions A Single Mom Can Make, Chasing Sunrise, and Homeless for the Holidays. Christmas From the Heart is a seasonal collection of six Christmas romances penned by bestselling authors and published by Elk Lake Publishing. Writing nonfiction as PeggySue Wells and fiction as P.S. Wells, Christmas from the Heart as well as Wells’ other books are available on Amazon.
