Wisconsin authors Becky Melby and Cynthia Ruchti will sign their latest book A Door County Christmas along with 2 other titles- Minnesota Moonlight and They Almost Always Come Home at Novel Ideas Bookstore in Baileys Harbor on Sunday, November 14 between 1 and 3 pm.
A Door County Christmas, a novella collection published by Barbour Publishing, well known for its Christmas novella series called Romancing America, is set among the villages and harbors of Wisconsin’s Door County Peninsula.
“When the idea came to collaborate on a collection of novellas,” notes Ruchti, “both Becky and I knew Door County was the perfect setting. Our files of pleasant memories overflow with moments in Door County, biking or hiking through its parks, eating pickled beets and herring at Al Johnson’s, watching the rhythmic nod of sailboats moored in the crook of Ephraim’s elbow, watching the ceremonial fish boil in the courtyard at the White Gull Inn.”
With their roots in Wisconsin, similar tastes for finding humor in life’s mishaps, and a habit of discovering nuggets of faith tucked among leaves of the everyday, Melby and Ruchti brainstormed stories that could help readers capture the wonder and charm of Door County. Two other authors joined the project to write the other two of four novellas in the collection.
A Door County Christmas entertains its readers with laugh-your-way-to-love stories and a glimpse at the true heart of one of Wisconsin’s prime tourist attractions as well as the true heart of Christmas.
