As Hope Caldwell fought for her life beneath the rubble of a bombed-out building, it was the thought of Christmas in Vermont and the snow-covered mountains that kept her going.
For Jack Reynolds, the mountains of Vermont have always meant something special. Now he has returned home from the big city to spend Christmas in Vermont and help celebrate his uncle's retirement from the postal service. When packing up his uncle's office, they discover a bag of lost Christmas cards. Jack volunteers to deliver them for his ailing uncle. He soon sees the joy that a card can bring to a lonely grandmother, a heartbroken father, a disabled veteran, and others as he delivers their belated Christmas mail.
Will the snows of enchanting Vermont work its magic again at this wonderful time of year and help Jack find...

Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
An awfully simple little story in which everyone is good; all, or almost all of the citizens of a small Vermont town are all on the same page and all are willing to help. In the end they all come together for the dedication of a new Veteran's Center that will be followed by a job fair. This is a totally sappy story; yet it works.
Sometimes you just wanna feel good and listen to a positive message. I purchased this one for the setting and the story came through. If you're looking for anything rough, gritty, or realistic; skip this selection, it's a total feel good piece of fiction.
I read several reviews on Amazon and they all said the same thing: "sappy," and it really was. And the narrator made it even sappier and so boring. He read like a robot and the women's voices were horrible. This was written by a man so I should have known there wouldn't be any romance in it unless you count them holding hands when they were buried under the rubble, at least nothing up until I stopped reading at 63%. There was not a bit of emotion in anyones voice in the entire story. From the time Jack saved Hope when the school blew up until he was showing her around his hometown in Vermont the voices never changed. I would never recommend listening to this story, or reading it for that matter, it's so boring.
The story was sweet, but the narrator's voice sounded like the voice from my kindle text to voice feature, so automated.
nice Christmas story. The writer has some word choices that are outside basic grammar rules .
I found the reader very average.
no just a nice little story.
One of the best books I have heard.
Hope and jack, the main characters were captivating from the very beginning
