    Story
    "My new annual Christmas Book"
    Would you listen to The Christmas Chronicles again? Why?

    It's a little different from the traditional American Santa Clause stories. I really enjoyed the premise and the execution. It maintained a Christian connection without being evangelical. I think from now, every year when I'm decorating the outside of the house and buying for kids Christmas present charities, I'll be listening to the story. It will remind me of the rules regarding gift receiving once you've given gifts under Santa's name.

    "Great story and recording"
    Would you listen to The Christmas Chronicles again? Why?

    A very captivating story. Couldn't stop listening. Had to listen to the whole thing as I drove home from my daughter's after Christmas. Because I heard a few episodes on Utah Public Radio before Christmas, I bought Cd's for all four of my children and their families. They liked it, too. This is a first-rate story and first-rate recording. Love the voice of the narrator.

    I work in a library, so you would think I read a lot, but I feel really guilty if I sit just to read. That is why audio books are great!

    "I Believe!"
    If you could sum up The Christmas Chronicles in three words, what would they be?

    Made Me Believe


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the most charming stories about Christmas. So many of our questions have been answered. For someone who holds Christmas close to my heart, I expect to see the road at any time.
