This story drew me in almost from the very beginning. It is the story of a woman and of many women in ancient time. The narrative ebbs and flows beautifully. And best of all, the narrator didn't just give voice to characters, but she became the women whose story she was portraying.
I loved this story and is now one of my favorites.

a new favorite Christmas story.

This book is great fun for children of any age, even as old as 99. Hopefully, everyone who reads it will be filled with Christmas spirt. It teaches all of us a lesson on happiness and doing good. I really identified with the elf and wanted him to saved from his doom.

The narrator did an excellent job of making each voice distinct from one another and his performance is what made this story stand out as a new classic.

I could hardly stop listening. I rarely read nonfiction, but this book was facinating. The subject was presented in an easy to understand way. The narration was paced so to give more interest to the presentation.But there is one drawback, that is the material could be gruesome, but it was necessary to the account.

I loved this book!! Jim Daley gives an enthralling and excellent performance. I grew up loving Winnie-the-Pooh and I still enjoy it as an adult. This book is written in the spirit of A.A. Milne, but with an freshness of new character and adventures. I could not stop listening to the end. Then I had to share it with my husband and listened again.

Romance with difference, but slightly out of order

Mary Balogh takes on romance with a handicap. Our hero of "The Escape" isn't physically perfect, but that's what makes him special. Also, everyone needs to find their place in the world, and that's the journey our hero and heroine travel. The novella "The Suitor" is a bit predictable, but fills in the fate of characters from the series "The Survivor's Club". Unfortunately, the novella is out of order, because it should come after the first book "The Proposal".
The performance is excellent, and the narrator brings out the emotions of the characters.

This story blends Christmas history with traditions and a bit of magic and imagination. Perfect before bed or sick day story to prepare for Christmas.

I love this story. It is like all true Christmas stories; it has a happy ending. But more, Mrs. Claus and all who read this story are reminded of the true meaning of Christmas.

Loved this story !

I loved this story of Mrs. Claus and how she saved Christmas. It's full of history and fun, and ordinary people changing the world.
One caution - this book is the second in the story of Christmas. I would recommend reading the Autobiography of Santa Claus first.

Believe in Christmas magic?...read this!

I loved this Christmas story. It seemed a little slow or just confusing in the beginning, but the author very quickly draws you in to this Christmas adventure. This story gives some of the fables of Christmas a new beginning that you would never guess.
The narration was great!

I love this book. The more I read Loretta Chase- the more I enjoy her books.
I could not stop listening except for sleep and such.
Being a fallen lady in secret, I felt with our heroine with all her inner turmoil over her past. I think everyone can understand having regrets about the past. Our hero was supposedly heartless, but he was just to intellectual for most characters. His intellect allowed him to be very modern in his thinking about our heroine's past.
The narration was great.
