When Gary, Annie, Joe, Dr. Don and the rest of the team at the Mission at Harbor and Divine consider helping Maria, Jose and Jesus with a Christmas time safe haven from assassins of the (fictitious) Copper Canyon Drug Cartel they set in motion an unintended path to murderous, destructive violence.
Blossoming love relationships, an art mission outreach to a developmentally disabled ten-year old artistic savant, the bicycle repair and give-away mission and even Christmas are all put aside in order to work with the FBI and DEA to save lives and derail the cartel assassin’s murderous intents in a destructive shootout inside the mission’s chapel.
Cleveland’s entire Near West Side of Cleveland rallies behind the courageous team of the Mission at Harbor and Divine turning dark violence into a fabulous Christmas celebration.
Come be reunited with your beloved characters from “Sfumato,” book one of the Harbor and Divine Series. Turn your bitter into sweet; your lost into found; your brokenness into healing as you triumph in the victory of Love and Faith in “Hope at the Corner of Harbor and Divine.”
T.W.Poremba has a lifetime of love for the Near West Side of Cleveland where he was born. As the setting for his Harbor and Divine Series, Cleveland’s Near West Side spawns heroic effort, loving friendships and healing hope from a mission at the corner of Harbor and Divine.
T.W.Poremba styles a cast of characters filled with love, faith and hope for one another and for all the struggling people who live in the inner city. His own love for the Lord, for people in need and for comrades in faith fills every conversation on every page with people of high character, deep respect, faith-generated hope and heart-warming humor.
He and his wife and chief editor, Cathleen Lewis Poremba, are certain that in this book you will find victories to cheer, love to cherish and hope to inspire you to find healing in your own brokenness and love in your own loneliness.
God’s blessings to you all,
T.W. and Cathleen Poremba
