Parents are supposed to love their children unconditionally, yet so many throw their kids away for reasons that I will never understand. Will, in this story, has to face the fact that his father not just hates him for being gay, but beats him half unconscious and then kicks him out of the house. The week before Christmas, a holiday that is supposed to celebrate love and acceptance, at that!

Will is pretty disoriented, but manages to walk back to the dorm he had just left to spend the holiday with his family. On his way there, he finds an open church and walks in to rest and maybe get warm. What he finds is his roommate, Quinn, at choir practice, and things take a different direction from there.

Quinn is there for Will, supportive and loving, and Will has a tough time accepting it. Yes, he is attracted to Quinn, but he has never let anyone come close enough to be friends (upon his father’s instruction), so this is a new experience for Will. It’s sweet, and heartwarming, and everything I want a Christmas story to be.

If you like you Christmas stories sweet and your characters a little overwhelmed with warm feelings after living in the cold of bigotry for many years, then you will probably like this novella.
