Seeking the Star is the third novel in the Chilton Crosse series, a quaint Cotswold village that makes me want to pack and move post haste. Seriously. #notevenjoking
Genre: Women's/Christian Fiction
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing
This time, we enter into the Christmas spirit as a lone drifter named Ben suddenly collapses outside George and Mary Cartwright's home. Mary, a bit of an insomniac, hears the thud and discovers this man helpless in the snow. Her senses tell her she must help, she cannot leave him in the cold. With the help of her husband, Ben is moved into their home and upon waking, reluctantly allows the Cartwrights to nurse him back to health. Ben has a secret though, and Mary knows that he carries a pain greater than he admits - and she wants to help him. See, Mary and George have known great pain, too and Ben's arrival in their lives boasts of divine intervention.
Christmas cheer can't help but spread throughout the tiny village with the Dickens-themed festival in full bloom. As nervous as Ben is to immerse himself in a society again, the village of Chilton Crosse slowly brings him round to understanding that it's okay to begin again, to forgive oneself, to learn to let go of pain, to believe in divine providence.
In a turn of events, Ben's secrets come to light on Christmas Eve pushing his guard to the ground and pulling him from his shell. How he handles the transition creates magic for the soul.

About the author:
Traci Borum is a writing teacher and native Texan (WOOT WOOT!). She’s also an avid reader of women’s fiction, most especially Elin Hilderbrand and Rosamunde Pilcher novels. Since the age of 12, she’s written poetry, short stories, magazine articles, and novels.
Traci also adores all things British. She even owns a British dog (Corgi) and is completely addicted to Masterpiece Theater–must be all those dreamy accents! Aside from having big dreams of getting a book published, it’s the little things that make her the happiest: deep talks with friends, a strong cup of hot chocolate, a hearty game of fetch with her Corgi, and puffy white Texas clouds always reminding her to “look up, slow down, enjoy your life.”
