Publisher's Summary

Noelle Mitchell never explained why she abruptly ran away from home at the age of fifteen. All anyone knew was that her boyfriend Reno convinced her to abandon her family. But when she shows up at the family house on Christmas thirteen years later what’s revealed about her absence will either tear her family further apart or bring them closer together.

27 minutes???!!!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

NO! Had know idea it was only 27 minutes, I NEVER would have wasted my $2.95. SO disappointed in the length :-(

Would you recommend Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas to your friends? Why or why not?

No, not worth the time.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Heather Alicia Simms?

Probably, if it were something I really wanted to hear.

Could you see Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not in its current state. LMN. If it were a complete story.

Any additional comments?

What in the world happened yesterday, suspense

The story was intriguing, heart-felt...so, what happened next? Leaving a person in suspense.

heart touching

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Even thought it was short it was touching it was sweet and filled my heart with mixed emotuons. I just saw all my trials pass through my mind and said if she could keep standing then so could I. It just does something to you as a child, siblind, parent, and individual.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Zane's I'll Be Home for Christmas?

When her and her father were speaking and she was telling him everything that has happened and his reaction.

Which character – as performed by Heather Alicia Simms – was your favorite?

The father was my favorite.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. And I did
