“Stolen Christmas” (ISBN: 978-1-78299-439-8)
This tale blends a Romeo and Juliet theme with a David and Goliath theme as it presents a charming holiday story for the whole family.

Two cultures are about to collide as a Mexican-American girl and an Italian-American boy reveal their relationship. The innocence of a young boy is about to be tested as he comes to the aide of his Church by enacting a dastardly deed to save it from demolition on the day after Christmas. Amidst these emotions of aa dejected priest, lovelorn teens and a boy who still believes that Christmas is a time for miracles there enters a white bearded stranger. The mysterious gentleman, known as Mr. Nick, shows not only these charactgers but an entire city the power of faith and love.”
“Journey of Three Pure Hearts”
“Bro-Mance” and “Romance” in Victorian Era Ireland and America
Arthur Cola has woven a coming of age tale in “Journey of Three Pure Hearts.” This is Book One of “The Doonagore Theft Trilogy.” The tale takes three teens in famine devastated Ireland on a Journey to America. Experience their life adventure as their families seek to give them a future of hope in the land of golden opportunity. Join James Shields, Aengus O’Flaherty and Meghan O’Grady as their lives become entangled in a triangle of friendship which grows into something more as a vocation to the priesthood is tested, boys start to become men, prejudice presents itself in a violent manner and love binds friend to friend, man to woman and “brother” to “brother.”
In this time of immigration concerns, this tale presents events which took place in the 19 th Century but is quite relevant to what is taking place in the present day in our nation. “Journey of Three Pure Hearts” is Book One of what will be my Doonagore Theft Trilogy, which will come to completion in late 2015.
