Summary

Christmas at Huntersbrook House has always been a family tradition - log fires, long walks through the snowy fields, and evenings spent in the local pub. And this year the three grown-up Craig children are looking forward to the holidays more than ever. Pippa to escape her partying lifestyle and mounting debts in Dublin; Joey the demands of his gorgeous girlfriend who seems intent on coming between him and his family; and Lainey to forget about her controlling ex and his recent engagement to another woman.
But with the family livery yard in financial trouble, this Christmas could be the Craig family's last at Huntersbrook as they face the prospect of selling the ancestral house. As the holiday season gets underway, the family need to come up with a way to save their home, and face the problems they've been running away from in Dublin. And what better place to figure things out than around the fire at Huntersbrook House.

Total Escapism

What made the experience of listening to Driving Home for Christmas the most enjoyable?

This is such a feel good story about a wonderfully warm down to earth Irish family. I enjoyed listening to their trials and tribulations, it really got me into the Christmas spirit.

What other book might you compare Driving Home for Christmas to, and why?

No, it stood out on it's own.

Have you listened to any of Grainne Gillis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I was delighted to find the author has written another book about the same family and I have already downloaded it.

No - but look forward to more

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I haven't actually finished the book yet, but tend not to be "moved" by books

Any additional comments?

I had never heard of Emma Hannigan until this week. All the reports of her work made the books seem quite fun - I haven't been disappointed.
