About the Book
Post Views: 51
A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is the follow-up to the bestseller, Hot Apple Cider: Words to Stir the Heart and Warm the Soul. A Second Cup won the 2012 Christian Small Publishers Gift Book Award Winner along with six 2012 The Word Awards and seven Awards of Merit. Midwest Book Review called A Second Cup a “reminder that there is something good in the world.” Faith Today magazine’s review said, “Some books surprise you with their ability to take your breath away… The short selections make this a perfect book for even indifferent readers. It would be a fabulous addition to an office waiting room, your bedside table, briefcase, backpack or purse. But be sure to buy more than one, for you will probably have the urge to share this gem of a collection with others.” Please note that there is also a Discussion Guide for the book, with questions related to each story. Each contributor has supplied questions about his or her piece to help readers think further about the issues raised, enjoy stimulating discussions, and share ideas and meaningful experiences. Foreword by Ellen Vaughn.
Sometimes all you need is a reminder that there is something good in the world. A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is a combination of short stories, poetry, and works of memoir picked for their inspirational nature, dedicated to finding a shining light in our lives that so often turn dark. The stories within are touching and poignant, and will help readers remember that there is something after the worst of it all.
– Midwest Book Review, Religion/Spirituality Shelf
A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is exactly the type of warm assurance, in satisfyingly small sips, that we could all use throughout the course of a busy day.
