The Christmas town by Donna VanLiere
This holiday read is about Lauren, she's lived a hard life with her mother in jail and then later in foster homes.
Now she's in her 20's and lives with another girl.
Story also follows Ben who's mentally challenged and he puts notes in grocery bags at the store. Very inspirational uplifting notes that he selects for everyone.
Ben's mother Stacy meets Lauren at the police station so they can point out who hit her car and left. After they stop at local bakery where they talk and Lauren tells her she works at the grocery store.
She has a suggestion for Gloria's Place-a local place for mothers, children and those in need. They love her suggestion and her help.
Love how the community takes care of the people in need.
