Publisher's Summary

After being gone for months, there's nothing like being home for Christmas. Although Brindle has no family there to welcome her back and the little town has grown since she left, it's still home to her and exactly where she wants to be in these final days. 

With a little help from a generous stranger full of the Christmas spirit, the holiday is sure to be perfect for Brindle. Full of love and memories, both old and new. 

She just prays she's able to enjoy it before she runs out of time and breath.

Bittersweet Holiday, Love Story with a Twist

This is the story of a Brindle's last Christmas due to a lethal lung disease. She goes home for Christmas and on her first night there meets a man. He tries to make it the last best Christmas he can for her. The story ends with a twist I did not see coming. I do not think I have ever listened to anything quite like it.

Linda Mooney did a nice job with the narration.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

Breath of Christmas

A beautiful Christmas tale that totally caught me off guard. Brindle wants to experience the joys of Christmas one last time before she succumbs to the illness that is taking her breath away. Can the generous stranger help make it a Merry Christmas?

Linda Mooney has written and narrated this short tale that is full of hope and emotion. The ending really caught me off guard.

Perfect title!

I was not prepared for the punch this short novella gave. Brindle is looking forward to being home for Christmas. She is suffering from a horrible pulmonary disease and being home is just where she wants to be for her last holiday. Little does she know there is so much more for her at home. This story took me by surprise. With Brindle's journey to her home, I was enthralled with how happy and warm her Christmas was turning out. With the help of her u-driver, she found peace, love and a delicious meal! How much better can life be? The spirit of Christmas runs through this short and you will enjoy the sweet melancholy this one brings. Narrated by the author, Linda Mooney, we get to enjoy the story as she has meant it to be told. Give it a try!

Unexpected ending and mixed feelings

Honestly, I was having a very separated feelings on how to review this book.
On one side we have a nice, short and emotional Christmas story. Throughout the entire book I was preparing myself for the inevitable ending knowing Brindle is going to die and it kind of disabled me to really appreciate all the emotions author wasted to transfer. As the book went further, I was slowly accepting it, but reading (listening) the final chapter I have to say I was a little disapointed by the turnover an the way book has been finished.
I know that "a happy ending" is something most writers aim to, but for this book to me it fell a little out of the order.
Overall, it was a nice short read and I will probably checkout more work by this author.
