A Christmas Home ~ Review

A Christmas Home
by Greg Kincaid

Todd McCray has grown into his position at the shelter and Christmas is vital part of the McCray household.  But nothing ever stays the same and the town of Crossing Trails, Kansas is no different. With the economy pulling the area down the shelter is going to be closed after the first of the year.

With his job ending Todd must decide what he wants to do, but what can he do?  Working with animals is what he knows, is there a job out there to fit his special talents?

But even more urgent than finding a job is the daunting task of finding homes for close to 50 dogs and cats in just a few weeks.  Can Todd pull off another Christmas miracle?  With the help and support of his friends and family Todd is determined to place all the animals.

But Todd is ready for more independence and with the help of his friend Laura Jordan he is about to determine what he wants for his life after the shelter.  But where will Todd's independence lead him and can he convince his parents that he is ready to move out?

A Christmas Home is a great follow-up to A Dog Named Christmas.  Seeing the relationship Christmas has with both George and Todd is touching.  Todd's struggle to become his own person and his developing relationship with Laura are the heart of the story.  When disaster strikes the little time the shelter has left is lost, can those most involved with the shelter step in and save the dozen abandoned pets still waiting for a home?  Only Christmas can tell....
