Animal lovers - get ready to cuddle up with a cozy, heart warming story!
Dog-loving author, Charlene Ann Baumbich, celebrates man's best friend in this fast moving, easy read which combines small town charm and a bit of holiday magic.
Hardworking stay at home mom and daycare owner, Cassandra Higgins, finds herself on an emotional journey which forces her to face some of the deep hurts of her past.
In a "flurry" of mysterious events, Cassandra learns about forgiveness, second chances, and what it means to truly love.
The beautiful snowglobe sparks long-dormant memories for Cassie, of her beloved Grandpa Wonky, the stray she rescued as a child, and the painful roots of her combative relationship with her mother, “Bad Betty” Kamrowski. Life in Wanonishaw, Minnesota is never dull, though, and Cassie keeps the recollections at bay, busy balancing her boys, her home daycare operation, and being a good friend to best pal Margret. But after a strange–flurrious, as Cassie deems it–moment happens with the remarkable snowglobe, Cassie and the people she loves are swirled into a tumultuous, yet grace-filled, and life-changing journey.
With the quirky, close-knit Midwestern small-town feel that made Charlene Ann Baumbich’s acclaimed Dearest Dorothy novels so popular, Stray Affections invites you to experience the laughter and the healing of second chances.
