This past holiday season, fifty of my friends and readers across the country held a brunch and book-club meeting for A Christmas Gift for Rose! I’ve loved getting emails with responses both from hosts and participants either who were introduced to the first book they’ve read by me or who loved the twentieth book they’ve read by me. A BIG thanks to the hosts who took the time to prepare for the brunches. I wish I could have shown up myself for every single one!
Behind the Scenes
“My brunch went well! We had cinnamon rolls made with the Amish recipe. We all enjoyed the book and felt it was such a good book and a good way to live our lives. Not to judge others because of the choices they make in life, but to find out what made them make this choice in the first place and to accept that. Looking forward to finishing the other books. I’m reading The Promise Box now. Almost finished with it and many friends are reading along with me. Some are far away in Colorado and we talk about the books via email! Keep it up and let us keep enjoying your books!” —Lee Ann
“The brunch was so great. We had a fun time of fellowship (which all of these ladies it was the second time I had seen or met them, first being when I went around and passed out invites), Tricia’s message and some delicious dishes we shared. We also did a food drive. We (my family) are new to the neighborhood, so it was such a blessing to be able to open up our home and invite our neighbors over and share an amazing story with them. God has gifted Tricia with an amazing ability to write heart gripping stories and I love how she uses God’s truth to enhance and provide them with so much power! Thank you for allowing me to host a brunch; it was so great!” —Nicole K
“We had a fun-filled, delicious brunch on Saturday, December 14th. The ladies (and kids) enjoyed plenty of yummy food. They really appreciated the party favors of bookmarks and recipe cards, and several ladies got to take home free books as well. We talked about how to simplify our Christmas celebrations, traditions new and old, as well as ideas for serving others and giving back. Thanks for letting me host!” —Nicole H
