A beautiful Christmas story with a powerful message. it is important to realize that just because things don't turn out the way we want it does mean it is a bad thing. Lydia, learned to embrace the positive things, trust that God always has a better plan, family are those whom you choose to embrace in your circle and Christmas is about sharing the love of Christ.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
"Christmas with the Colburns" was a charming, sweet novella. I like that it was clean and I especially enjoyed revisiting characters I've been familiar with before. Lydia is such a wonderful person. I love the way Isabella gave her a book that had belonged to her mother as she tries to keep her own family traditions strong. This book sparked the Christmas spirit in me as well.
There was a great message here. And for me that message was that it doesn't matter where you are and who you spend the holidays with. It's about unconditional love and giving oneself to others and remembering the true meaning of Christmas. Things may not always turn out the way one expects but minus expectations, they turn out the way they're meant to be.
Keely Brooke Keith is a wonderful author and I love the Cherry Salad recipe and will be trying it for the holidays. What a delightful gift.
Kate Fisher's narration was perfection. She has a nice tone in her voice with the right inflections for Lydia. She does an exceptional job and I could listen to her read all day. I hope there'll be more of this series and if so, I hope she continues to narrate it.
I definitely recommend giving this book a listen as well as the "Uncharted" series. All are terrific.

"Christmas with the Colburns" was such a wonderful novella that will get you in the Christmas spirit! I enjoyed the clean romance and the Biblical references. The author weaves a touching story that makes you realize the true meaning of Christmas.
I've really enjoyed the Uncharted series and was excited to find out there was a Christmas themed novella out. I loved reading more from Lydia's perspective. I really liked her character in the first book and was interested to see how things were going for her now. I also enjoyed the flashbacks to Lydia's mother's youth and watching her romance story unfold.
I listened to the audiobook edition which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fantastic - the best one so far in the Uncharted series.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
This short novels was good.Kate Fisher narrated and was a bit livelier than past narrators of this series.Lydia is upset that no one will be coming for Christmas.Change is hard, but with help from her loving family she finds a way to make it a good Christmas anyway.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review through Audioblast
