Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming novel from Glenn Beck, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Christmas Sweater and phenomenally popular radio and television host.
Rachel Price’s one happy memory from her childhood is of playing outside with her father, Mitch, on a cold and snowy day. In that moment he took her hands in his and called her his angel. She felt safe, loved, and protected. Rachel’s mother dies in a car crash a few years later - a sudden and unresolved ending to a complicated relationship. Mitch’s reaction to certain realities surrounding the death pushes Rachel away and confirms her fear that Mitch never truly loved her at all.
Years later, Rachel’s daughter, Lily, is the only light in her dark life. Rachel is consumed by an abusive marriage but too afraid to escape. On Christmas Eve, Rachel’s husband raises a hand to Lily in a moment of aggression that finally snaps Rachel out of her docile state. She realizes immediately that she must protect her daughter in ways her own parents didn’t protect her and remove Lily from the situation. Through the help of an old and dear friend, Rachel has a safe place to go, but first, she must say goodbye to her father.
As the snow falls on this Christmas Eve, Rachel learns that it’s never too late to start over. The Snow Angel is a tale about family, forgiveness, and learning to treasure our memories while allowing ourselves sto move forward.

A Wonderful Story, Great Narration

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story took hold immediately and I didn't want to stop listening until finished (although I had to). Not only did I enjoy the story, but I was very pleased with the two narrators that were chosen. The book was read more like an audio dramatization than the usual "read the book aloud" narration. I was sorry when the book came to an end and will probably "read" it again many times. Kudos to all who were involved in the production of this book. One of the best listens I have had.

Simple

The story portrays in a simple way what are in reality incredibly complex human issues. As such, it not very enlightening. And the issues are too deep, too prevalent in our society, and too disturbing to be an entertaining or uplifting read. Leave this one on the cyber shelf.
