Publisher's Summary

Open a window each day of Advent onto the natural world. The author reads 25 descriptions of wild animals of the northern hemisphere ingeniously adapting when darkness and cold descend. All of them reveal the ancient wisdom of Advent: The dark is not an end but a door, the way a new beginning comes. 

These short, daily reflections paint vivid, poetic images of familiar animals. Anyone who does not want to be caught, again, in the consumer hype of the holiday season but rather to be taken up into the eternal truth the natural world reveals will welcome this audiobook.

Beautiful prose, beautifully read by the author.

This book sounds sounds as beautiful as it reads in print. Gayle Boss’ reading brings out the poetic prose and the subtle music enhances the reflective performance. Excellent work!

A story for all ages to re read

Rarely have I read a book that held my interest so well as the words captured in these stories. The author details each creature with love telling of sounds, colors, and purpose.
As she mentions of her children, I see us re reading this story every Advent too. It is short and chapters take just 5 to 10 minutes to read.
