Ory I grabbed this audio book off the library shelf to satisfy my summertime need for a Christmasy story I was halfway through the book and becoming annoyed by the minute The *READER ADDED NOTHING TO THE TELLING *added nothing to the telling voice flat and without emotion I finally was bothered enough by his lackadaisical rendition to look at the cover to see who the reader was Oops read by the author Even he sounded bored by his own Novel I M Sure I I m sure I You Are the Rain in the minority but I failed to find muchnspiration from this tale Maybe Cycle Style it would be bettern print but the audio version seems to be filled with short choppy sentences and sappy dialogue It failed to give me a warm fuzzy feeling I was reminded of a boring lecture You know the kind where you are supposed to be taking notes but you find yourself doodling and staring at your watch willing Artscroll Children's Siddur it to move faster Obviously I am not a fan of the author andf you are you may see something here that I have missed I think this s Added 51613I read this book n 2007It s a good story and an easy read I heard the bells on Christmas dayTheir old familiar carols play In music sweet the tones repeat There s peace on earth good will to men Lyrics by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow There are stories Christmas stories that are stored away like boxes of garlands and frosted glass ornaments to be brought out and cherished each year I ve come to believe that my story s a Christmas story For Iron Cross it has forever changed the way I see Christmas Just like our story the original Christmas tales were stories of searching not so much for the lost as for the familiar Mary and Joseph soughtn Bethlehem the home of their familial ancestry a place to start

VerI d like to start with the poorer parts of this book *This Book Is Almost *book Time Capsule is almost to find anything wrong with but I did find something to argue with Thats that Finding Noel Hot Under the Collar is very predictable Even thought Horses is predictablet still makes you curious to see how Goblin King its all going to work out In the beginning of the book I knew that Mark and Macy would fall The Luthier's Apprentice in love Sure enough three weeks later Mark asks Macy to marry him Also I would like to mention Macy Macys very nice and thoughtful You could never tell what she had been through Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California if she never told you about her past I think her characters almost unrealistic Her mother died before she was seven leaving her to an unreliable dad She was adopted at the age of seven to the Hummels Joyfulness and Kindness wasn t even possible n the Hummel house No one ever cared for Macy at least of what she could remember The worst of all was that her non biological mother hit her Yet after living n such bad conditions Macy turned out not so bad after allIn spite of these things criticisms the positives ualities make up than 90 percent of the book Mark and Macy are the main characters of the book The book moves around them but without all the other characters Villa Mendl: Leben und Schicksal der Ankerbrot-Erbin Bettina Mendl it could not be a book Richard Evans tells of these charactersn a fascinating way Even reading for fifteen minutes there s a connection between the reader and charactersAlso with these characters t makes a exciting and moving book I could never put the book down because I did not want to go on with my life until I knew how Mark s
LIFE WOULD TURN OUT I WASwould turn out I was always on the edge of my seat In essence I think Evans couldn t have written a better book He teaches us that love and understanding Schlechter Sex 2 is what we all need to give to each other for Christmasn to each other lives Even though Macy s previous families did not work out she found a loving mother named Jo I recommend this book to everyone this Christmas season It New Jewish Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre is not a waste of time or a book for the trash Consider this book for a gift Richard Paul Evans amazes me with his skill of telling a heartfelt andnspirational story of a soul that seems broken yet all along has been whole Though growing up was a struggle and loveless while as an adult you search for what you thought was missing during your childhood and found that during your search you located where home was the whole timeyour current life and not n your past Life s like a Rose We get transfixed on the bloom but ts the thorny stem that keeps t alive and aloft I think life Sword and Sorceress 24 is like that The things we value are worth fighting for andn the end we value the stem than the bloom A great story teller Evans always brings a novel to life As the Christmas season approaches Mark has to drop out of college due to finances and has just learned his mother has died and on one snowy night n November when he car dies he stumbles upon a girl Macy who has had a horrible childhood and living with a lady who took her n She has little memory of her birth parents and a horrible adopted family Her one hope s to find her sister Noel as they were separated when they were children and kept apart by the system Macy and Mark are meant for each other and fate has something n motion as when one door closes God places someone there for you An amazing story loved The Riptide Ultra-Glide it. Ever Macy Wood has little memory of her birth parents and memories she'd rather forget of her adopted home A Christmas ornamentnscribed with the word Noel s the only clue to the little sister she only vaguely remembers a clue that will send her and Mark on a journey to reclaim her past and her famil.
