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.

    Story
    "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
    "Awesome Book"
    Where does The Snow Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the books that I have purchased, it is at the top of the stack. I have read many books over the years and this one was one of the best. It was simple and not complicated. It was smooth. It showed abuse, neglect, and love all in the same book. The story of Sara's (the mother), daughter shows a great love towards her mother. It is impressive. If you are in the mood for a change and want something that is not heavy then purchase this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked it best when the book showed re-uniting with unconditional love. I'd love to say a whole lot here but it would spoil the book for other readers. It showed me that a good marriage allows you freedom and a abusive marriage chokes the life out of you. This is just what I got out of the book. You will find something just for you when you listen to the story for yourself.


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

    No, but I would listen to any books that January LaVoy or Ron McLarty narrated. The narrators of this book may have told a story but you never felt like they were reading to you. They were smooth, animated and both of their voices were pleasant. They drew you into the story.


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

    If I had my choice to rename the book I would stick with the original name of the book, "The Snow Angel." The name of the book picks out a precious moment in Sara's life and shares it with its readers.


    Any additional comments?

    If you choose to read this book, you will have anger in your heart at times, and at other times you will drop a tear. In my opinion it is worth the money and most of all it is worth your time. It was definitely worth my time.

    "A Good Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Snow Angel to be better than the print version?
