Summary

The Christmas season is supposed to be full of joy, but not for Mark Smart. Life has dealt him one blow after another, until one snowy November night, when he meets a beautiful young woman who will change his life forever. Macy Wood has little memory of her birth parents, and memories she'd rather forget of her adopted home. A Christmas ornament inscribed with the word "Noel" is the only clue to the little sister she vaguely remembers, a clue that will send her and Mark on a journey to reclaim her past, and her family.

sweet story. gets you in the Christmas spirit.

I liked it. I like his books but honestly wish he had a different narrator do his readings. the story is good. A little predictable. But that's ok.

A touching story about healing

I very much enjoyed the story and characters. The narrator was too monotonous though. Hardly ever any expressiveness.

Lovely little christmas story

Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Noel to be better than the print version?

I don't think so as I do not think the author is a good fit for the narration.

Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Paul Evans’s performances?

I would prefer not to.

Any additional comments?

Lovely little Christmas story about the true meaning of Christmas with underlying messages about true unconditional love, sometimes your chosen family is the best.

I loved the analogy at the end that described how most people are most Captivated by the beautiful blooms, but that most of us who have lived a life of love will be more impressed with the stem because to truly appreciate anything you must work hard for it
