Remembrance by Carolyn Frank



When the Hallelujah Chorus is banned from his school's Holiday Gala, Josh doesn't want to get involved and fight the injustice like he usually does. But after book traveling through the life of George Frideric Handel in the Literary Loom, Josh has second thoughts. Those second thoughts grow into a passion as Josh discovers the mystery behind the quirky new kid at Claremont High, and learns the value of remembering Christ as he travels through the New Testament. Everywhere he looks, Christmas seems to be about everything but Christ. He can't change the world but he can at least bring back the Hallelujah Chorus and help people remember what Christmas is all about. In the process, Josh discovers some crucial answers in his search for God.



Author Interview with Carolyn Frank
Carolyn was born in Payson, the middle child in a family of seven. Her mother was very frugal and Carolyn says, “I still remember the time I was supposed to wear a pair of knee-high stockings for a Scottish dance our class was doing for our school’s Spring Festival. Instead of buying me a pair, my mother cut off a pair of tights that had a hole in the knee and sewed elastic around the top to make a home-made version of knee highs. I hated them, but didn’t say anything.

Carolyn loved to write. She was on the newspaper staff in high school and had her own editorial column. She minored in journalism in college, but she says, “. I had an instructor who ripped my writing to shreds and convinced me that I was no good at writing, so I decided to drop my minor and stick with my major of biology/botany. When I ended up getting an A in the class I confronted him and asked him, “What was that all about.” He responded with, “I was just trying to prepare you for the real world.

What he did was cause me to bury my love of writing. Ten years ago, after reading a distasteful novel in my neighborhood book club, I told my group, “I can write a better book than this.” The next day I started my author journey and realized, yeah, I used to like to write.
Enter Carolyn’s contest to win a set of this entire series, The Quantum Faith Effect series with Remembrance as the final book. All you have to do is leave a comment on her blog.
