Story

Fantastic New Christmas Story from Karen Kingsbury!

KK is one of my favorite Christian authors. This, her latest novel, doesn't have as much emphasis on the characters faith as I've found with others. Probably so that it will appeal to a broader audience. This story was beautiful and is being added to my "Things I do at Christmas" list, right up there with watching "White Christmas". My only complaint would be that when the voice actor is reading the story that they don't always read the "I Said", "He Said", etc. There are times when it is generally understand that a conversation is going on, especially since they make an effort to change their voice for each character. I found during long dialogs between characters that this was immersion breaking.
