We’re stepping back from Christmas readings in this December podcast due to an opportunity to interview author and world traveler, Jodi Cowles, and to read from her third novel, When Darkness Falls. Jodi joined us via Skype all the way from Istanbul, Turkey.

Jodi's three books vary in style and subject matter. One reviewer writes of her first book, The Minor Protection Act: Ms. Cowles's novel is a sobering reminder of how fragile religious liberty and parental rights are in America.

Her second book, an allegory titled Thirst, takes a unique, thoughtful look at the world's suffering and sadness. When Darkness Falls is unrelated to the first two books and is the beginning of a series. From a reviewer: A believable look at terrorists, their hostages, and the complex relationships that can form between them, as well as how those "back home" cope and deal with all that is involved.

'Tis the Season for eclectic holiday readings on Let Me Tell You a Story. We read Wyoming poet Eugene Shea's Christmas thoughts, an old Christmas tale by an early 20th-century author, an ancient Christmas hymn and a letter to Santa. To close the podcast, Elaine Oostra's "Star of Hope" and a Martin Luther poem give listeners food for thought as they journey through this Season of Celebration.
