About Willow Cross

Willow Cross is a self-proclaimed vamp enthusiast, were-hunter, prankster, dreamer, story teller, benevolent dictator of minions, and chocolate lover. She resides in Arkansas with two children still young enough to live at home, an enormous cat named Bitsy, and a neurotic dog named Tank.

Her home has been known to host the occasional ghost and several of her friends profess to be witches. Although she dearly loves Vampires and Werewolves, they are never invited for dinner.

This was a gift from the author for an honest review.

I loved this story!! it was truly a christmas miracle!!! This story really hit home. I understand how Mercedith feels and what she is going threw. This was an amazing short read. It gives you hope when you have lost it. I know this is just a story but it gives you hope that there are still some really good people in this nasty world!!!!

I just loved your book. It touched me deep down in my heart. I know my mom had 3 girls to raise and it's hard even when you have a second person to help out. This life is a struggle, but with the lord's help anything is possible.... Very well done, please keep writing. You are a great writer.

A Christmas Miracle by Willow Cross

Mercedith Owens is divorced and trying to raise her family on her meager income. Being a woman that wants to successfully do it on her own she doesn’t really want to ask for help but she learns that sometimes for God to work you have to ask for the miracle. I could really identify with Mercedith as I was a single mother. I had five boys to raise and it wasn’t always easy.
I loved how the character of Mercedith learns that life can be about receiving a gift as much as giving one, especially when you aren’t expecting it to happen. She is willing to repay what she receives and the door opens to give her the help she needs so desperately. I recommend this to anyone that has been , knows or may be a single mother. Miracles do happen, especially when you least expect it.

This is a great read! Mercy is a single mother of 4, just trying to survive the struggles of life. She is having trouble making ends meet, but refuses to give up. Thanks to a Christmas Miracle, things begin to look up for her and her children.

This short story is on that most of us can relate to. It will bring tears to your eyes. A great Christmas story that can be read anytime you need a little reassurance. Miracles really do happen!

This was a pretty good story, though perhaps the author could have taken a bit more time on character development.

Well written, heartfelt story of a mothers journey through her crisis that affects many parents each year. Provides assurance that faith, humanity and kindness still exisit in this not so pleasant world. The writers simplistic story telling,excellent verbage, well documented timeline. You can feel how this woman who has been described as a hardworking, single mother, who like many have found a place in the working world, regardless of how many trials and tribulations she faces. This story reminds me stories shared from one generation to the next. The candles significanace in the story, is the mothers desire to find a resolution to her problems, her fighting ability to do anything to give her children not only a warm place to live, but a warm heart.
Truly a motivational story that many single parents can relate to on a personal level.

Review by: Richard Barrington on Dec. 23, 2011 :
It's hard to review a short story like this. It's obvious the writer invested a lot of heart in it, but there's really little else to recommend it. The writing is simplistic and immature, leading me to suspect that the author is either very young, or very inexperienced. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the notion of a single candle heating an entire room. Additionally, there is very little structure, and no characterisation or plot to speak of. The characters are all one-dimensional, and as a reader I felt no sympathy for them or interest in them. It is clear that this story was written in a single sitting, and probably took no longer than an hour. One has to wonder if any editing or proofing went on between completion of writing and uploading to this website, as the story needs a huge amount of work doing to it. Undeniably, the author deserves some credit for putting pen to paper and consequently having the faith in his or her own work to present their writing for public consumption. For that, I award one star. But the story is very poor, and unfortunately the author's immaturity shines through.

What a beautiful heartwarming Christmas story. The only negative aspect of this story was that it's too short.

I curled up with a cup of coffee by the Christmas tree and read this heart warming book. It brought me to tears. I feel so blessed in my life and to have read this book. Makes me thankful for all that we do have. The inspiration of working hard, never giving up, the Christmas spirit of wonderful angels, and the love of a mother all wrapped in one short story. What more could you ask for.

What an AMAZING story. Shows how a single mother can take care of her kids when the husband takes off. She busted her a$$ to try provide for her kids. It showed that God does hear our prayers an he heard hers an seen she was struggling and he answered her prayers.

What a wonderfully uplifting story showing how with a little faith miracles can and do happen! If you are feeling a little blue this holiday season this story will certainly give your spirits a big boost. Merry Christmas and thank you.

How is this inspirational? God provides kids who are happy, healthy, fed but fails to touch the starving in the world? This is pap for the soul. Well written pap,perhaps, but pap nonetheless. Odd how one candle can heat an old wooden farmhouse in the middle of a snowy field. Odd how a mother can work until 3am every morning and get up a mere 3 hours later to work. Odd how the God-fearing woman had her kids out of wedlock. Too many oddities and impossibilities.

I really do believe that things happen for a reason.

As in the past, my family and I are not celebrating Christmas this year. There are things that we want and need but all we can do is dream. If I could wish for anything, it would be for a steady income that would support us comfortably.

All I can hope for is that our circumstance changes for the better, just like Mercy’s. While I am not religious, I do believe in miracles and I enjoyed reading this book.

After reading A Christmas Miracle, I feel a little more hope! This story definitely makes a great read for the holidays. If you are in need of cheering up, cuddle up and read A Christmas Miracle.
