A Second Cup of Hot Apple CiderEditors: N.J. Lindquist and Wendy Elaine NellesLindquist and Nelles have poured a nice variety of deeply personal, faith-centred stories into this second helping of “hot apple cider.” (Hot Apple Cider, an inspirational anthology of short prose and poetry, was published in 2008). Themes include marriage, parenting, friendship, career, loss, health issues, and even neighbours’ pets.
Hot Apple Cider:Words to Stir the Heart and Warm the SoulEditors: N.J. Lindquist and Wendy Elaine NellesAlong with the heartwarming, real-life stories we expect from a Chicken Soup-style book, the editors of this collection have tossed in some surprises. There is poetry, short fiction, and some tart essays on drug addiction, poverty, and the plight of Third World women. Indeed, these thirty Canadian Christian writers have cooked up a flavourful anthology with broad appeal.
