Fiction • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

John McDonough reads this endearing holiday tale, along with two bonus Christmas stories. After narrating several audiobooks in the Mitford series, he has grown into the role. McDonough's deep, gentle voice matches the simple lifestyles of Karon's characters. He gives a natural voice to the town's residents and charms with his vocal characterizations. The listener feels Mule Skinner's discomfort at abandoning a cozy diner and the tender emotions of Father Tim. McDonough endears himself to the reader with his portrayal of the elderly, ill, and impoverished Uncle Billy. As the mountain man frets over the "Santy" he must provide for his schizophrenic wife, McDonough's depiction resonates with the Christmas spirit.
