Publisher's Summary

The Christmas season is supposed to be full of joy, but not for Mark Smart. Life has dealt him one blow after another, until one snowy November night, when he meets a beautiful young woman who will change his life forever. Macy Wood has little memory of her birth parents, and memories she'd rather forget of her adopted home. A Christmas ornament inscribed with the word "Noel" is the only clue to the little sister she vaguely remembers, a clue that will send her and Mark on a journey to reclaim her past, and her family.

sweet story. gets you in the Christmas spirit.

I liked it. I like his books but honestly wish he had a different narrator do his readings. the story is good. A little predictable. But that's ok.

A touching story about healing

I very much enjoyed the story and characters. The narrator was too monotonous though. Hardly ever any expressiveness.

Great story

I love all of Richard Paul Evan’s books including this one, but I wish that he would have someone else read it. Still enjoyed it after I learned to add my own voices and emotion in my head as he read
