Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Incredible story!"

    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!

    "A Wonderful Addition to my Christmas Collection!"

    Loved this story, it is one that I will listen to, every year, at Christmas. Enjoyed it as much as the Christmas Sweater! The dual narrators, both excellent, really made it come alive. Very well written and performed, I highly recommend!

    Story
    "Multifaceted, unforgettable story"
    Would you listen to The Snow Angel again? Why?

    Definitely! Listening to it again will allow the listener to acquire deeper messages and applications, beyond the first hearing of the plot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The realism...and the deep commitments in relationships described.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The spunk of the little girl who encouraged her mother to leave the abusing father.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme, but it tugged on the heart strings...as I have observed spouse abuse.


    Any additional comments?

    Vocabulary is beautiful! Makes it great to listen to, with eyes closed, as imagination is colored so well with the words.

    Story
    "Very realistic story and narrarators were spot-on"
    What did you love best about The Snow Angel?

    it was a very true-to-life story about how sometimes we can take a bad life and turn it around yet we can never truly fix everything from our past. It is what it is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Snow Angel?

    When Mitch was watching his granddaughter make snow angels through the window


    What about January LaVoy and Ron McLarty ’s performance did you like?

    It took a while to get used to 2 voices in the story, but after a bit it seemed the natural thing to do. Both were great.


    If you could rename The Snow Angel, what would you call it?

    Wouldn't rename it, it is perfect


    Any additional comments?

    For me it hit very close to home so sometimes I had to turn it off because it would dredge up my past to the point of making me cry. However, it is a good story and just like in my own life, the story illustrates how things can become better.

    "Who'd a thought...?"

    A simple yet poignant story of how kids perceive things and how they're affected by their perceptions. Well worth a listen.
