Requiem = Sad songs. Little hope. Depression. Misery. A chance meeting during the holiday season revives hope and renews faith when two single parents from separate worlds become convinced that obstacles can be overcome, miracles really can happen, and dreams do come true. A Christmas short story, approximately 18,600 words (75 standard pages). Tender romance. Young adult, Adult, Single Parents.
Mary Simmons is experiencing unsettling emotions during the holiday season. She has divorced an irresponsible husband, lost an elite home, luxury car, and an administrative position when the bank closed its doors without notice. Christmas is only a few days away and even with two jobs, it isn't certain there will be enough money to pay for her children's few gifts in layaway. She misses the smiles and happy times once shared. Their dreams are as dismal as the dreary place they now must call home. Is there still such a thing as Christmas joy?
David Johnson is on the opposite end of the spectrum with a six-figure executive position and lives in an affluent neighborhood. However, he also is dealing with the Christmas requiem. He lives alone. His adored children live some distance away with their mother. And the job he holds no longer has the challenges that once excited him. There is no one with whom he can share the promise of a beautiful future. Or, is there?
