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.

    "Engrossing from beginning to end."
    Where does The Snow Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm new to audio books. The Snow Angel was great because I feel the narration added so much to a well-written story.


    Any additional comments?

    I will look for more of Glenn Beck's books.

    "Worth it!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Snow Angel the most enjoyable?

    Very vivid details in the story that make you 'feel' what the characters are feeling.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Max, because he has deep love for his wife, a great work ethic, and tremendous patience.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Making the snow angels.......


    If you could take any character from The Snow Angel out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Max, because I would love to hear his life story.


    Any additional comments?

    Only dissappointment was the ending, it seemed to drop off so suddenly. Maybe I just wanted to know more about what followed for the main characters?

    "Good story and well written"

    I liked this book.
    I felt that it was very true to how women repeat abuse in their life, stay in denial and don't see how things really are. I also loved the way people rallied to help her out of it and help her to "see".
    The only thing about this book that I didn't like was the ending, I felt he could have given the reader a little more satisfaction from the father's perspective--some more lucid moments--but I guess he was trying to show how things are in the real world!

    Story
    "Emotionally Charged!"

    This book was riveting!! As I listened to the story unfold, many times I felt myself pleading with Rachel to just run away...to help Mitch remember his little girl...and to give Cyrus a piece of his own medicine. This is a well written story of how abuse can progress from generation to generation until someone says "I'm done!". A great story, I wish hadn't ended. Well done, Glenn Beck, well done!

    Story
    "Story of a life of abuse."
    If you could sum up The Snow Angel in three words, what would they be?

    It was great!


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

    When Rachel finally woke up to the fact that she & her daughter needed to get out the life they were in.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy and Ron McLarty ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to say that it held my interest which helps make the book. It is very good.

    "A Wonderful Story, Great Narration"

    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 best story of beer"

    I expected a good story because it's Glenn Beck. He is just a fabulous story teller, but I never imagined it could have been this wonderful. I got the audio but I am going to get the hardcover so I can share it and make it an annual read. I truly hope it is made into a movie. I would easily given it 10 stars.
