Kathleen J. Robison writes stories of faith in real-life challenges, where shattered lives are restored by grace and revived with new hope. She was born in Okinawa and raised in California, Florida, Mississippi, and Singapore. Her travels are rich sources of inspiration, as well as her eight adult children and nineteen grandchildren. Her ethnically diverse history extends to her family of thirty-six personalities, providing many opportunities to encourage and share God’s faithfulness in trials and blessings.

Kathleen’s featured book is entitled Let Them Eat Fruitcake.


Faith, romance, and fruitcake.

Victoria Randall has it all—a new job in an ideal locale and the eye of Chad, the hunkiest guy in her office building. Christmas is going to be great this year. But when a call from her best guy friend back in Bay Town tells her that her grandmother isn’t doing well, she decides to fly to her grandmother’s rescue.

Art has loved Victoria since they were five, but after she returns and keeps him locked into total friend zone he decides to let his hopes go. Easier said than done when he spends so much time with her, making and delivering her grandmother’s fruitcakes. Add to that the legend of love surrounding them, and well… it’s tough.

A horrible accident puts things into perspective for both Art and Victoria, but Art decides it’s too late, and when some guy shows up acting like Victoria’s boyfriend, he’s sure of it. By the time she’s ready to head back to California, all hope of a romance between them seems lost—right up to the moment her grandmother thrusts a piece of fruitcake into her hands.

Are the matchmaking properties of Sally Trotman’s fruitcake their last chance at a happily-ever-after? Find out in Let Them Eat Fruitcake—a story of faith, romance, and of course, fruitcake.

“Oh, they went as planned—God’s plan. We don’t always know why he brings the delays, but they’re for a good purpose. He promises us that. If not ours, then someone else’s.” She closed her eyes.

            God’s plan. What was God’s plan for her? She’d been so busy living her life in California. She hadn’t given His plans much thought. But when she came back to Bay Town, she always felt closer to God than anyplace else.
