Publisher's Summary

A young woman, desperate to have one last lovely Christmas, brings the spirit of the season to the Harrington household.

Grace Ashman has lost everything: her mother five years ago, and now her father and her home just a week before Christmas. She lives on the streets until one kind man invites her inside for a meal before the holiday. What she couldn't know is that his kindness will change her life forever.

Joshua Dibbs has been the butler at the Earl of Harrington's London town home since 1809. If there is one thing Dibbs is known for, it is doing things properly. At least until now. Alas, when the earl arrives unexpectedly, the butler is reliant on help from a homeless woman to keep the household running until the staff returns!

An Uncommon Christmas Story

I've been meaning to read Sue London's Haberdasher series forever, so I jumped at the chance to listen to this Romance Package offering. It's a quick listen about a servant (butler) and a woman from the trade class, which made it different from most historical romances I've listened to. It had wonderful characters, and it really put me in the Christmas spirit. I will definitely listen to or read the other Haberdasher books. Matthew Lloyd Davies was the perfect narrator for this. He sounded like what I imagined the butler Dibbs would sound like. I usually don't favor male narrators because I don't like how men mimic women's voices. The screechiness they often affect for women's voices usually becomes grating after a while, but Davies did an admirable job with all the characters' voices. #ChristmasRomance #WorkingClassRomance

Simple, sweet, sublime

A warm cozy listen, perfect for the holidays. I liked that the characters were not nobility.
