Publisher's Summary

When Annette gets Lucien into trouble at school, he decides to get back at her by threatening the most precious thing in the world to her: her little brother Dani. But tragedy strikes.

Annette knows she can never forgive Lucien for what he did to Dani, and she is going to make sure that no one else does either. She is so filled with rage that she sets out to alienate and humiliate Lucien at every turn. But then some surprising things begin to happen to both of them.

Patricia St.John's stories are classics of their time and have been enjoyed by generations of children. This edition of Treasures of the Snow combines her superb skill as a storyteller with language sensitively adapted to a new generation of children.

A Delight

I am periodically on the lookout for an audiobook that can be enjoyed by the whole family and is appropriate for the whole family. My two daughters and I listened to this book while on a road trip and we all enjoyed it very much. It was interesting to hear about life in Switzerland in the 1930s. The characters were interesting and the book imparted good values.

Our #1 favorite Christian children's novel

I wish this version were the original unabridged novel (Mary Mills has recently condensed most of Patricia St. John's books), but it's still so very good, and the story is beautiful and powerful. I've read it out loud to my children twice, and am thrilled that we now have this as a permanent audiobook and can listen at will. The reader has a lovely British accent that just seems right. Please don't miss this one! If you haven't seen the movie, look that up as well.

Delightful family listen

As soon as the narrator stopped, my 9 year old son said, "Start it over!"
We laughed and cried together as we thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Sweetest Gospel rendering

It was easy to give this a five stars rating. My family and I listened to this on a car trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. With kids from 6-13 it’s sometimes difficult to find a book everyone can appreciate.
The story covers topics like forgiveness, kindness, love with genuine care and simplicity. This book may be one of the clearest illustrations of the gospel of Jesus I have read in a fiction book. We will enjoy this one again soon.

Such a Helpful Book

There are so many things about God and so much wisdom in the Bible that I forget that Treasures of the Snow make clear and memorable.

Powerful, moving story

I read this book when I was a child and it made a big impression on me, so it was fascinating to be re-united with the story and good to be reminded of the spiritual truths it highlights.

Treasures of the Snow Review

I have very fond memories of this heart-warming story. It was read to me by my mother as a child, as it was also read to her class in junior school, a little each day.

I was delighted to find it available on Audible.

My only criticism is that I felt it most unnecessary to very slightly modify the original text; for me this only detracted from the original book.

Nevertheless, it remains a much loved audiobook.
