A family story about struggle and love during the Holidays

 Ghetto Waterfront Christmas is a touching story of a struggling young mother and her children, along with their neighboring friends. It is the story of the challenges of two poor waterfront families during the Christmas holidays. Written as a Christmas gift to the children of the author for a bedtime story, Ghetto Waterfront Christmas is a touching, comical, children's drama which demonstrates what love can do even when financial stability does not exist. It is the story of a young woman, who after the loss of her husband at sea turns her daily struggle into a secret surprise designed to uplift and delight the lives of her children. It is a story which demonstrates the idea that triumph can come out of tribulation, and misery can be destroyed by love and sacrifice. It's lessons of hope and blessing counting is one traditional in Christmas stories. A powerful testament to the power of love, the strength of woman, and the importance of perseverance. Verbally descriptive as well as visually enhanced with artistic graphics and illustrations, Ghetto Waterfront Christmas will leave you laughing and crying.

Excerpt
I could see her from my window as she stood at the end of the rickety old dock attached to the rear of the property. At one end the rails rotted and had fallen away so that it wasn’t safe. We were not allowed to play there for fear that one of us would fall into the water. This dock was now covered with ice, as was the water below, and was treacherous slippery. But here my tiny mother stood, motionless, gazing out over the frozen water. She often spent many nights standing here alone, staring far out into the water as if she were hoping to catch a glimpse of my fathers weather worn fishing boat. I fell asleep with this vision of her each night. She was gone when I awakened.
