Spotlight on Homemakers' Christmas by Jill Piscitello

Homemaker's Christmas (Amazon) and Smashwords

Homemakers' Christmas captures the joy, love, and hope of the Christmas season. Cricket Williams' life has seemingly hit rock bottom when she and her children are unexpectedly rescued. It seems she is being a given a new chance at life and love, but will she have the courage to take that chance? 

This is unique and special holiday story because it is truly about the essence of Christmas, more than just a love story backlit with holiday lights. It is about charity, kindness, and forgiveness, especially of one's self. 

A tender and enjoyable read, perfect for the holiday season

Blurb:  One woman’s journey from nothing to everything...

A recent error in judgment has deposited Cricket Williams, her daughter, and a son spiking a high fever into a homeless shelter. A touch of Christmas magic is sprinkled upon her family when an eccentric volunteer invites them into her New England farmhouse. Blindsided with the proposition of a contractual living arrangement, Cricket is seized with renewed hope for her future.

Boris Glynn is in town visiting his grandmother but harbors a secret that will impact her life and the lives of his dearest friends. Complications arise when he is unable to restrain himself from pursuing his grandmother’s beautiful new neighbor.

As Cricket begins to succumb to Boris’s attention, her new world is shaken by a series of events that have the potential to destroy her plans for a fresh start.
