Introduction

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.
The Christmas Secret is now a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original film. Watch it this holiday season!

Fun easy read. I enjoyed all the characters. I would love to have a Gloria and Miriam in my life.

I liked this book ok, some of the side characters were more liked than the main characters to me. They came to life easier than the main characters. This was an easy read, and a little up lifting because... (read more)

Our book club read this in December. It's a sweet book, and an easy read for an otherwise very busy month. The moral of the story is right on target, but there are a few elements that are very unrealistic...such... (read more)
