Journal Entry 1 by Kmarie from Tazewell, Virginia USA on Tuesday, February 15, 2005

9 out of 10

Very powerful audiobook. Synopsis:
A fourteenth wedding anniversary is nothing to sneeze at, Elliott Banner knows, but it's not exactly a landmark year -- like fifteen, or twenty, when he plans to take his wife, Laura, to Paris. But when a headache on the drive home from their anniversary date -- two days before Christmas -- turns out to be more than a migraine, he wishes he had celebrated every year as though it were their last.

In this poignant, touching, uplifting story, a woman calmly gathers her family around her during the Christmas holiday to celebrate their lives together -- both past and future -- and to truly count their blessings.

A family history unfolds in a single night in this deeply affecting story that speaks volumes about love, trust, and letting go -- a perfect holiday read that underscores the true meaning of the season.

This is a very powerful book, even though it seems small. Very emotional read! It is NOT a "Christmas story" but the event does take place on Christmas Eve. Very moving story!!

Will trade

So-so. At first the book/audio was so sad I didn't think I'd make it! HOW TERRIBLE!!!

Overall it was ok. I CAN'T imagine this happening to a family! Totally about, love, and the Christmas season. Anyone looking for a quick audio...this is just perfect.

2 1/2 hours.

Up for trade!

Not what I thought it was going to be by the title... depressing and interesting at the same time.
Thanks for sharing it.

Listened to this while rooting through the audiobook box. Not my kind of fare. I love murder and mayhem, but I don't enjoy maudlin. Will pop it back in the box.

It was an interesting book. Not a holiday read, though, like the blurb on the back suggests. Elliott is so over the top at the beginning, but fortunatelly mellows down some. Sad and touching, but also uplifting story.
