Publisher's Summary

When a struggling young single mother saves the life of an elderly woman, she sets into motion a series of events that will test her strength, loyalty, and determination, all the while setting her on the path to finding true love. Christine Eisley is the mother of seven-year-old Zach and five-year-old Haley. Her ex-husband provides little, if any, child support and makes life difficult for Christine by using the children as pawns. She works long hours as a waitress to make ends meet, but her job is in jeopardy because she's often late to work due to the unreliable teenaged sitters she's forced to use.
When Christine saves the life of a woman who works in Wilson's department store, the owner of Wilson's wants to find her, to thank her, but Christine has disappeared, losing another job once again. He sets his grandson, Jason, to the task of finding the mysterious "Christy". Jason, an accountant by trade who has lost his job to downsizing, thinks he is "above" working at Wilson's. Soon he discovers that this new task gives him more than he bargains for.
The Christmas Secret is a novel for anyone who wants to see how love is a gift that keeps giving back, that hope is a treasure that never runs dry, and that faith is a miracle that is reborn with each new day.

Sweet Story for Christmas Time

I love this story of single mom meets young know-it-all who comes home to the family store and has to "work for a living". The characters are like the ones all of us have met and know. That is what I like about Donna VanLiere's books. They are filled with people you could actually know. This is a great Christmas listen for families.

This was my first

Years ago, I bought this book as a hard cover. It was my first book Donna VanLiere. I'd been looking for heart warming. She delivered in spades. Stories of rich millionaires falling in love with modern Cinderellas are fun, but this story shows true struggle & kindness. It's definitely not just fluff. Maybe it's because I've been there, but I was pulling for all of these characters throughout the & cheering them on. I'm so glad to have gotten it, and many more, in audio. Either read or listened to, you won't be disappointed.
