Publisher's Summary

Christmas is a time for giving - what do you do when no one gives a damn? For Zachary Weston Christmas means sleeping on a churchyard bench in the freezing snow with nothing better in his future. Thrown out of his home for being gay, he is left without money or, it seems, anywhere to go. Until a stranger shows him that some people do give a lot more than a damn. Ben Hamilton is a rookie cop in his small home town. He finds a young throwaway, fresh from the city, sleeping on a bench in the churchyard on a snowy Christmas Eve. Can he be the one to give Zachary his own Christmas miracle?

This is my favourite Christmas story to read. So full of hope and the spirit of Christmas. Whilst I do like the sound of Sean Chrisden’s voice lovely and mellow at times the narration seems a little fast. But this was not enough to spoil my enjoyment.

Bitter sweet suspense of love & caring. Excellent.

I love love love this book so much. first brought as an ebook then as audio because I couldn't get enough. I listen or read it every 3 months or so. I feel wonderfully frustrated with Ben holding back him 'need' of Zac, so that he can do things right when they do get together. Zac feeling flashbacks of insecurity is realistic because nobody's past experience disappears with a click of fingers. Part of me would love to see this in film though another part doubts they could put the look and feeling evoked by the written and audible word. Now where Mr R. J. Scott do I find a family and friends like this to belong??? The beginning - simple and beautiful.
