Narrator Eliza Foss portrays Nana as she tells her grandchildren a true Christmas story from 1977. In Nana's tale, Peter the pastor and Hank the bartender switch places the week before Christmas, finding love and enlightenment in the exchange. Foss unwinds the story in a gentle old-time style that suits Macomber's wholesome message. Peter sounds more restrained, while Hank is more casual and jovial. Peter's sister, Grace Ann, who is stuck with guiding Hank through church festivities, sounds appropriately peeved until she rediscovers the meaning of Christian charity. Peter's encounters with the bikers who frequent Hank's tavern include lots of gruff voices and some hilarious moments. In an understated fashion, Foss encourages listeners to share Macomber's theme of boundless love in a joyous Christmas season. C.A. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
