The Christmas Gate

By T. A. Cline

General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Robert Robinson, a renown author from New York City, is traveling unwillingly through a snow storm on his way to a small farm in upstate New York owned by his editor. Robert's fame from the success of his books has changed him. His indulgence in big-city parties and being in the spotlight has allowed his arrogance to swell and for him to lose focus of his obligations. Now, being excessively late on the third book of a three book contract, he is given an ultimatum. He can either face legal action from his publisher or take one last chance to finish his book away from all the big-city distractions. Patty has her own issues, dealing with the memories of her late husband. Always at the edge of depression, she somehow remains visibly strong and in control of her emotions, despite her internal turmoil. While Patty's father is away to be with a dying friend, she assumes the responsibility of caring for the old farm owned by the New York editor. Robert is oblivious to Christmas and all that goes along with it. His parents loved Christmas, but he hadn't spoken with them in over eight years after their argument. Over the years, he has slowly disconnected from everything that reminded him of them. Christmas just became a day for a bigger party. While at the old farm house, Robert discovers something that has been hidden there for possibly generations. What secrets lay just beyond an old screeching gate? Will the miracle of Christmas find its way to Robert? Find out in the story, "The Christmas Gate."

I am what you call a late bloomer, an old farmer turned author. If I had to describe myself it would be, "A Christian Farmer Storyteller", if I could leave a legacy that would be good enough for me. I was sixty-three when I started to write my first novel, "Archomai, The Prince, The Scepter, And The Shield." I have always wanted to write, and now I am seeing that dream come true. My third book was released this past fall, November 25th; it is a Christmas story, "The First Snowflake." My first book published was a collection of poetry, the title, "The Old Corner Post." It is a thirty-year collection of poems and ballads. My Christmas story for 2016 will be coming out December 6th. It is called, The Christmas Gate. I have spent most of my life on the farm, and I do love working the land. There is a spirit of freedom on the farm that surpasses anything I have ever experienced. I have had many jobs, from truck driving to managing a plastic plant and most everything in between, but I always seem to drift back to the farm. I am truly blessed by God. With my wife, our four children and six grandchildren, we live the country life. Our family is within twenty miles of each other, so we get together often. Family has always been important to me and gathering together especially on holidays is a high point of my life.
