Even the Smallest Serendipity Changes Lives
Even the smallest serendipity can positively change lives forever. So says Donna VanLiere in her novel The Christmas Shoes (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2001). The book is available in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.
The novel was based on the #1 hit single "The Christmas Shoes," by Newsong. Perhaps this music video will shed some light on the underlying themes.
If you like Donna VanLiere, we have another book trailer that we made almost two years ago for one of her later titles, The Christmas Secret (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2009). The book is available in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog.
Holiday books are inspirational. We could all use some of that.

P.S. The Serendipity Singers were a folk group that charted several hits, including "Don't Let the Rain Come Down (Crooked Little Man)" (1964), which reached the top 10 on Billboard's folk charts. This television recording (surprisingly in color, for 1964) shows the band performing live. The clip was included on the PBS television program My Music: John Sebastian Presents Folk Rewind (2010).
