Two men. One Christmas Eve that changes the courses of both their lives.

Henry’s homeless and only wants a warm place to sleep on the coldest night of the year. A forgotten open window in a darkened house entices Henry inside with the promise of warmth and comfort. He knows it’s wrong, but he promises himself he’ll be out before the owner wakes on Christmas morning. Except he oversleeps and the homeowner, Jim, discovers a bearded stranger sawing logs under his dining room table. When the shock and the drama that ensues dies down, Henry and Jim discover that they might have found, quite unexpectedly, the Christmas miracle they’d both been longing for—love and home.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2017 Advent Calendar “Stocking Stuffers.”

Look Inside


4✨s – What a cute little story about a homeless man down on his luck and a just broken up with, Jim, who’d just found out that his technically not boyfriend had a wife and kids. When jim woke up on Christmas morning and found the homeless man sleeping under his table, he couldn’t bare to turn him away, out in the cold on Christmas. My heart broke for Henry because he seems like such a sweet guy that just ran out of luck. I couldn’t imagine what he must’ve went through; though it doesn’t really tell us anything about it, nor what happens after Jim gives him a little holiday hope. We just know that they ended up together, but not how or any sort of idea of how it happened after one finds a homeless man under his table that he decided to help. I liked the ending though, that it was a happy one. Good for a nice short Christmas read.
