Perfect Story for Christmas!

Listening to this story reminded me of what I love most about the Christmas season, a time of year when life seems to slow long enough for us to focus on what's really important - family, friends, and just being content with small blessings.

In The Gift, a father discovers his own Christmas blessings when he's left to deal with the season's preparations while tending to his young daughter. It's an endearing story that strikes a chord of familiarity and brings a smile.

The narrator's voice is crisp and clear, almost with an announcer-type quality, but we should be better able to distinguish the young girl's voice from the father's narrative and dialogue. I think this kind of added emphasis on characterization would benefit the audio version.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily posted this review.
