About the Book

Dramatic changes in life can happen at any time. She has lost her mother to cancer, and she's drifting along, alone, in a small town with little excitement in her life. Then she meets Eddie Weston, and everything changes-first for the better and then for the worst.

Living with Eddie in a large city, her life takes an upward shift. But through an act of fate, hateful words, and an unforgivable act of betrayal, she finds herself alone again-only this time with no place to stay, no place to call home. She is nameless, and now lives with the downtrodden on the streets of Edmonton.

Fortunately, she meets Mr. Taylor, a leader of sorts in the homeless community. She learns to get along with an odd cast of street people, from Hannah, a Goth teen who stomps around in beaten-up Dr. Martens, to Betty, an exotic, gypsy type, a caring person with a dark side.

My Home Street Home is a powerful, eye-opening tale about how quickly a life can be forever altered, and the struggle to survive on the street.
