“A wonderful holiday read!” ~Former First Lady Mrs. Laura Bush
“Sometimes, I think we humans are incredibly nearsighted. We busy ourselves in one plane, while the universe revolves in another – a plane more vast in scope and more intricate in detail than we can even begin to comprehend.”
From The Christmas Swap, a novel by Janet A. Martin
A mysterious stranger and a rare white fawn unlock secrets… some newly hatched and some long concealed…in the hearts of good souls and bad in rural Clearview, Virginia.
There are no Christmas novels quite like this one. But if you crossed the warmth of a Jan Karon story with the intrigue of a John Grisham mystery, you might find something close. Or, if you like the music of Mannheim Steamroller, you will find this book enthralling with its far-flung emotional range.
A special gift for a loved one, or friend – or for you – this novel stakes a claim as a Christmas classic in the 21st century.
