About the Book

A boy who doesn’t believe in Santa Claus and a woman eager to help him discover the joy of giving to others.

When Juanita Sanchez and the Desert Flowers – Willow Sanchez Kincaid, Rose Bowers, and Lily Walden – open Juanita’s Kitchen, the food kitchen Alec Thurston and they formed as a charitable organization, a young woman named Ivy Barrett and her seven-year-old son, Benjy come into their lives.

Ivy is appointed head of the kitchen staff and they all work together to open the kitchen before the holidays. But when Christmas decorations are hung and talk about Santa Claus begins, Ivy makes sure Benjy understands that Santa Claus has never been in their lives and he shouldn’t dare hope he ever would. Distressed, Juanita and her husband, Pedro, set out to show them the spirit of giving is still alive and well, even for those who don’t believe.

Readers of the Desert Flower Series will delight in meeting young Benjy and his mother in this sweet holiday story.
