A heartwarming novel from Glenn Beck, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Christmas Sweater and phenomenally popular radio and television host.
Rachel Price’s one happy memory from her childhood is of playing outside with her father, Mitch, on a cold and snowy day. In that moment he took her hands in his and called her his angel. She felt safe, loved, and protected. Rachel’s mother dies in a car crash a few years later - a sudden and unresolved ending to a complicated relationship. Mitch’s reaction to certain realities surrounding the death pushes Rachel away and confirms her fear that Mitch never truly loved her at all.
Years later, Rachel’s daughter, Lily, is the only light in her dark life. Rachel is consumed by an abusive marriage but too afraid to escape. On Christmas Eve, Rachel’s husband raises a hand to Lily in a moment of aggression that finally snaps Rachel out of her docile state. She realizes immediately that she must protect her daughter in ways her own parents didn’t protect her and remove Lily from the situation. Through the help of an old and dear friend, Rachel has a safe place to go, but first, she must say goodbye to her father.
As the snow falls on this Christmas Eve, Rachel learns that it’s never too late to start over. The Snow Angel is a tale about family, forgiveness, and learning to treasure our memories while allowing ourselves sto move forward.

For me I like to listen, as I am not a good reader. I did read Blen Becks the Christmas Sweater last year, very good book too!
I always wanted to read more... hear more. It is real life with real people and feelings.
No, This was my first time. This is only my second audio book
I will read more Glen Beck stories and I would love to listen to January Lavoy and Ron McLarty again.
I was surprised by this book, but thought why not give it chance. I liked the book, wondered if this spoke volumes about Glenn Becks childhood.
This story is compelling and holds your interest. I couldn't put it down. The narration was wonderful. Despite what you feel about Glenn Beck or his politics, he is an absolutely great author and storyteller. You must read this book.
This story was well told and explored a sensitive subject that so often is not discussed even still today.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story took hold immediately and I didn't want to stop listening until finished (although I had to). Not only did I enjoy the story, but I was very pleased with the two narrators that were chosen. The book was read more like an audio dramatization than the usual "read the book aloud" narration. I was sorry when the book came to an end and will probably "read" it again many times. Kudos to all who were involved in the production of this book. One of the best listens I have had.
The story portrays in a simple way what are in reality incredibly complex human issues. As such, it not very enlightening. And the issues are too deep, too prevalent in our society, and too disturbing to be an entertaining or uplifting read. Leave this one on the cyber shelf.
Glenn Beck has a knack for telling incredibly detailed stories with so much emotion. Just like the Christmas Sweater, The Snow Angel drew me in immediately and kept my attention until the very end. A very heart-felt story that holds so true to life!
I have to admit I was really not expecting this from him it was my first book from him other than the political and historical selections. Bravo my friend a wonderful tale.
This is a truly great story. The readers are execellent, and the story is told brilliantly. If you want a great listen - get this story. You won't regret it.
