Sometimes stories spring forth from life’s toughest seasons, and that’s exactly how Susan Sleeman’s The Christmas Witness (Love Inspired Suspense) came about. Inspired from years of living with chronic illness and turning to God in the most hopeless moments, The Christmas Witness is a fast-paced story involving kidnapping, ransom and revenge. “Ultimately, it’s about finding hope in God’s promises when life looks the bleakest,” Susan says. “And what better time of the year to celebrate hope than Christmas, right? I pray that when readers experience difficult times that they’ll remember this story and take heart in God’s promise to give us hope and a future.”
