Homeless for the Holidays
by P.S. Wells 

“Gladdening and humorous assurance that the best things in life have nothing to do with things.” (Richard Paul Evans, number one New York Times best-selling author of 43 books including The Christmas Box)

Christmas is coming, and Jack Baker’s finances, friends, and future are as gone as last year’s holiday. One year ago, Jack Baker had it all – a beautiful family, a lucrative career, and a generous bonus to spend on the annual Baker family Christmas extravaganza. Now, the Bakers are homeless and clueless about what to do next. Amidst the holiday traditions and trappings, one family learns what is truly important when they lose all they have, and they still have everything.
