Christmas Evie, a novella by Nicola May, is about a woman who goes to help out at a homeless shelter for Christmas. The synopsis says: "It's two days before Christmas and Evie Harris finds herself both manless and jobless. After a chance encounter with handsome Greg (and egged on by her toy-boy-eating friend, Bea) she agrees to work at a homeless shelter on Christmas Day. Striking up an unlikely friendship with homeless Yves, Evie begins an unwitting journey of spiritual awakening, all set against the sparkling winter backdrop of London. A New Year's Eve revelation is on its way ... but will it leave Evie with a happy heart, or will she allow the pre-Christmas past to dictate her future?"
