Love listening to books whilst driving to work
Loved this story made me cry whilst driving home. Recommend it to all and merry Christmas enjoy as much as I did
Saw a reference to this book online and decided to give it a try. It is an easy listen with likeable characters and a sweet story. I appreciated the absence of a love story; it was a nice change. I listened to the sequel immediately after finishing this one.
"I was moved to tears more than once"
This is one of the most beautifully crafted stories I have ever heard. I drive an hour to and from work every day listening to audiobooks as I go. Christmas Jars was such a good book that I found myself hoping I'd get stuck in traffic so that I could keep listening. I was pulled into the lives of all of the characters and found myself wanting to start my own Christmas Jar. On more than one occasion I found myself sobbing at various parts of the story. I believe everyone should hear this remarkable tale. This book captures the true spirit of Christmas, forgiveness, and all of the magic it holds!
There is no way I could pick a favorite character. They were all amazing.
My favorite scene is at the end. There is a special twist in the last few chapters that brings this book to a mighty finish.
I would take Mr. Maxwell out. This man had the biggest heart and spirit of all. He was a comedian too.
"One for re-telling"
If you need some reminders of the goodness in life then this is for you. This heartwarming story of the unknown affect that kindness can have brought warmth to my heart.
An inspiring tale of giving, love, family and the power of hope.
"Very moving Christmas Story!!"
Motivating Christmas book!
The random acts of kindness offer inspiration to begin family traditions!
All of the people lined up bringing their own family Christmas Jars.
Hope - because it would be a great opportunity to ask her about time with her mother.
Thank you for the audio book! We enjoyed it very much!!
