Summary

It's December 1953. As the village prepares for the festivities, for many people, a happy Christmas is by no means certain. Recovering from a car-crash, Stella Simmons, the winter wedding that she and her sweetheart had planned seems impossible. Elsewhere in the village, Jackie Tozer is dreaming of America and Hilary Napier, who thought the war had robbed her of her chance at happiness, has to ask herself if she could ever imagine leaving her life at the big house. The darkest time of the year finds everyone asking questions with no easy answer. As snow falls softly on the village, and everyone wishes for peace and joy, Burracombe proves once again that there's always a surprise around the corner.

Another lovely village story

How I enjoyed listening to this book, wonderfully written by Lilian Harry and read so well by Anne Dover. I laughed at the things the children said during the nativity play and found the story both happy and sad in places. The way Lilian Harry describes the snowy scenery was so easy to visualise - it was lovely.
