Publisher's Summary

Verna Lind expects Christmas of 1952 to be the best holiday she’s had since the war ended. But as she’s leaving the bank, a frigid wind off Lake Erie catches her hard-earned Christmas club savings, whisking the bills into the busy streets of downtown Cleveland and devastating her plans. Strangers come to her aid, though no one anticipates the power of their chance encounter or the seeds of happiness Verna’s lost money will sow. 

From Barbara Hinske, best-selling author of the Rosemont series, comes this heartwarming Christmas tale celebrating the generosity of the human spirit and the irresistible pull of love - an instant holiday classic for admirers of It’s a Wonderful Life and The Gift of the Magi.

Holiday Miracles

After reading Guiding Emily, I decided to check out some of Barbara Hinske’s other books. I was drawn to this one, thinking it would be great at the top of my holiday reading list. It didn’t disappoint me.

I was amazed at the impact that six five dollar bills scattered to the four winds would have on so many people. I loved every character and found each scenario believable. The ending is priceless. The narrator of this Audible version does an excellent job. The Christmas Club well illustrates how magical this season can be. I hope you, like me, will make it a first on your holiday reading list this year.

The Christmas Club

I read this book when it first came out and absolutely loved it. I knew this would become an annual favorite. I just finished the audible version and it was just as amazing. Love the lesson of paying it forward! We need more books like this in the world.

Random acts of kindness

The Christmas Club is one of those feel good stories that you need during the holiday season. As Verna Lind is leaving the bank, a strong wind grabs the six $5 bills she got and blows them away. And our story begins. That money makes it to those in need, whether by picking it up or those that find it give it away. It shows the strength of the human spirit, the love of each other and how a random act of love and kindness can change the world. This is that one that warms your heart and leaves you happy. Piper Goodeve voices the goodness we have in this timeless story.
