Talking to Calippa Cumberland: It began with a lost child on Christmas Eve [9781912726486]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

It’s half past four on Christmas Eve, 1976. Lori Bloom, aged three and three-quarters, is leaving a busy department store with her mother when the tannoy announces that a child in reception is lost and crying for her parents.

The impact on Lori is immediate. ‘Calippa Cumberland’, the mysterious girl with blonde hair and a curious name, becomes her imaginary friend and a constant presence into adulthood. For as one Christmas follows another, Lori finds herself confronting painful questions and in need of a companion in whom she can confide.

But will there ever be someone Lori can completely trust? And will Christmas Eve ever be about finding and being found, rather than losing and being lost?

AUTHOR: Chick Yuill is a speaker and writer with a growing passion to bring matters of faith out of the narrow confines of a religious ghetto and into the wider arena of public life and discourse. He writes fiction because of his lifelong love of words and out of his growing conviction that nothing reaches truth or touches people’s hearts better than a well-told story. Talking to Calippa Cumberland is his sixth novel published with Instant Apostle. He has been married to Margaret for more than 50 years and recently had her name tattooed on his arm for the sheer joy of it. As a token of gratitude for the life, love and laughter he enjoys every day, all author royalties will be donated to the charity Compassion (UK).
