Seeking the Star Tour

*This post contains affiliate links

I’m delighted to be participating in the Sage’s Blog Tours Virtual Book Tour for author Traci Borum’s SEEKING THE STAR, the third installment in her Chilton Crosse series.

Here’s a brief synopsis of this women’s, Christian fiction release:

One December night, in the sleepy Cotswold village of Chilton Crosse, a drifter named Ben collapses on George and Mary Cartwright’s snow-covered doorstep. As Christmas cheer spreads throughout the village with a Dickens-themed festival, Mary nurses Ben back to health, but she becomes curious about the secrets he seems to carry. 

On Christmas Eve, one of Ben’s secrets accidentally comes to light, forcing him to confront the darkness of his past and to rediscover the faith he once knew. 

This is a heartwarming story with a Christmas theme that will inspire hope and goodwill. It’s a story that will have you experiencing a range of emotions as you come to love these charming characters.

Author Traci Borum has created a memorable town that take hold of your heart. The setting and time frame are perfect for holiday reading, but speaks to life throughout the year. The characters are well-developed and realistic.  

SEEKING THE STAR deals with tragedy, but also how important it is to find a way to carry on. This is a must read even if you have to have a tissue or two handy. It’s a stand alone read.

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me as part of the author’s virtual book tour in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.


Author Traci Borum
Traci Borum is an insatiable bookworm whose first love is fiction.  As a little girl, she became mesmerized with books—with the textures, the smells, and most especially, the worlds created between the pages.  Years later, she discovered she could create her own worlds by writing.  She’s been scribbling away ever since, writing bits of poetry, articles, and especially fiction.

Traci has been a Creative Writing teacher at a community college for the past ten years.  She's a native Texan and an Anglophile at heart.  She owns two "British" dogs—a Corgi and a Sheltie—and she’s completely addicted to Masterpiece Theater (must be those dreamy British accents!).  More than anything, she treasures the friendships in her life and adores her supportive family.

For more on Traci and her writing, visit her blog and connect with her on Goodreads and at Red Adept Publishing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Are you getting in the holiday spirit through Christmas-themed books?
