News Releases


In a society where families are seemingly pulled apart on a daily basis, it’s encouraging to read stories of healthy family relationships. Perhaps, there’s no better time to hear of these stories than at Christmas.

So, when New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Donna VanLiere began work on her latest book, “The Christmas Town,” bringing family back into Christmas was her obvious theme. Especially since five of her holiday books, “The Christmas Shoes,” “The Christmas Blessing,” “The Christmas Hope,” “The Christmas Secret,” and “The Christmas Note” all became best-sellers and made into high-profile movies.

“The Christmas Town” was released October 18 by St. Martin’s Press and in it, VanLiere weaves messages of love, hope and family into the heart-warming story — perfect storylines for the holiday season.
