The Holy Eclair – By Rebecca S. Ramsey
American mom and Baptist church lady Becky Ramsey moves to France knowing her family’s life will change, but her faith? Why would it? Then a quirky new friend gives her a holy card she found at the flea market and soon Becky finds herself on an accidental pilgrimage out of the pew and into the streets of France.
Readers come along as she collects a ragtag assortment of unlikely saints and sacred everyday things, each one earning a chapter and holy card of its own. Curious encounters with a silver haired prostitute and the ghost of Vincent Van Gogh, a bowl of cidre in a stranger’s garage and an éclair chocolat at Patisserie Antoinette, among others, whisper into her workaholic heart, revealing the wildness of God’s love, tempting her to let go of her striving to become God’s teacher’s pet and finally accept grace for herself.
