Publisher's Summary

Edwin Klein's iconic downtown toy store is hanging by a thread. The end is near, but he won't accept it. The store is all he has left of his wife and he can't let it go. Failure and loss have led him to a dark place.

After a chance encounter with a shoplifter, he stumbles upon the help of Amelia Cook, who is struggling with her own loss. Through one holiday season the two of them hatch a plan to save the store and in turn touch the lives of everyone they know.

What follows is a wonderful, but tragic tale of love, loss and new beginnings.

    "Everything you hope to find in a novel"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I believe that anyone who values a good story will find this book a pleasure. The details that bring the whole story together are shared a little at a time. That kept me in wonderful anticipation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are true to life but more interesting than most I've encountered in books.


    What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

    His voices for the children and women seemed odd at first but they became amusing, entertaining and comical.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I never saw the ending ahead of time and that made it all the better. I felt a wide range of emotions and might have cried but realized it was just too wonderful to be upset.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope I find many more stories this rewarding. I will remember this as the first wonderful audiobook I've listened to.
