Overview

Under-qualified and overly-ambitious, Holly left her family and friends behind in Nebraska to search for that radical life, that all-for-Jesus-or-nothing-at-all life. Escaping the depression that chased her following her father�s untimely and agonizing death, this young accountant-turned-adventurer trekked to remote mountain villages and through city streets smelling of human excrement: all in search of a Father�s love. Thousands of miles from the only home she�d ever known, Holly discovered a deeper passion for her God while sharing the gospel in India and soothing abandoned babies in South Africa. God made sure that Holly also encountered Oscar. This handsome South African rugby player seemed to have everything Holly had been praying for in a husband�except for the small detail that he didn�t look like any of the other guys she�d dated before. Oscar, as the son of parents who had lived through racial segregation and apartheid, was not supposed to bring home a woman whose skin matched the color of the people his parents had served. And this small town, Midwestern girl wasn�t supposed to fall in love with a black man, either. Hot Chocolate in June is the true story of God's undeniable ability to mend emotional wounds, overcome racial and cultural differences, and write amazing adventure stories. Join Holly as she navigates her way through deep grief and loss, only to discover the sweetness of love and restoration.
