A heartwarming small town story of faith and forgiveness, friendship, family, and hope.
Welcome to Weldon, where the only things the locals love more than fried fruit pies are gossip and match-making.
Librarian Emma Baker, a young and childless widow, believes her dream to build a family is over. It’s been two years since a student accidentally stabbed Emma’s husband to death, and her grief has stifled any interest in romance—until she meets Pastor Luke Davis. But when Emma learns Luke is counseling her husband’s killer fresh out of jail, her temper gets in the way.
Meanwhile, Emma discovers twelve-year-old Harley, abandoned by her drug-addict mother, hiding in the library, and takes the girl in as her foster mom. Then a young mother is made homeless by an apartment fire, and Emma opens her home again. One person and one prayer at a time, Emma begins to discover hope.
“Every Window Filled with Light by Shelia Stovall is a warm and delightful story of forgiveness and hope. Stovall skillfully paints a great word picture of her fictional little town of Weldon and peoples it with characters you will be glad to meet as you follow their stories. You’ll love the generous heart of Emma and admire her resilience as she faces the challenges of life and love. If you like feel-good stories, then Every Window Filled with Light is a book you won’t want to miss.”—Ann H. Gabhart, best-selling author of An Appalachian Summer.
No wonder Harley was angry. Never in Emma’s life had she wanted to hurt someone, not even Winston Meador, but at this moment, if Harley pointed to a guy and said, “That’s him,” Emma would pick up a stick and chase him down. She drummed her fingers and waited for Harley to get in the car. They both needed counseling. Brother Bob might be able to help her. No. Harley would come closer to trusting a female counselor.
Harley slammed the car door and fastened her seatbelt in slow motion.
Maybe Brother Bob could suggest someone, Emma thought, but then the answer came to her. Minnie. No one had a more sympathetic ear or more wisdom than her. Perhaps she could add lessons for the heart while teaching them to cook. Yes, she’d ask Minnie to help. They both needed to learn how to replace their anger and bitterness with Minnie’s joy. Emma smiled as she remembered Minnie’s words. Happiness is a choice. Only a foolish person chooses anything else, and I ain’t that.
