Publisher's Summary

Patricia and Mark Addison have long given up the hope of having a meaningful Christmas. But this year, Patricia's job as a social worker will lead her to a very special five-year-old. Against her better judgment, Patricia bends the rules and takes the little girl to her own home. Through the presence of Emily in their house, and her penetrating questions about heaven, the Addisons learn that there is no sorrow so great that faith cannot help you find your way through. And Christmas will once more be a time of joy in their home. The Christmas Hope is a story of love in the face of loss, joy when all seems hopeless, and how light can shine into the darkest places.

VanLiere does not disappoint.

This story was heartwarming. The way the characters are intertwined are always cleverly done by VanLiere. This is a must-listen.

A heartwarming Christmas Story

While I am not a religious individual and there were definite undertones of a religious story, they were subtle and, let’s face it, to be expected in a Christmas Story.

This story was well written and beautifully narrated. It was perfect for a relaxing Saturday morning read as the holiday season wraps up.

enjoyed the storyline, and narration. glad it had a happy ending, and that Mark and Patricia rekindled their love for each other through the presence of a child.

I loved listening to these books as much as I have reading them. I smiled and I cried, just as I did reading them.
