THE CHRISTMAS NOTE
BY DONNA VANLIERE

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Donna VanLiere’s Christmas books have enthralled millions of readers. Now she delivers a new inspirational novel about an unlikely friendship between two women—a friendship that will change each of their lives forever.

Gretchen Daniels has recently moved into a condo with her two children to be closer to her mother, Miriam. As they build a life together in their new community, they notice a mysterious young woman, Melissa McCreary, who lives next door. 

Melissa has few possessions, little personality, and keeps to herself. One day a local landlord who is looking for Melissa knocks on Gretchen’s door for assistance. Melissa’s mother has died and in the coming weeks the landlord needs Melissa to empty her mother’s apartment. Gretchen reaches out and offers to help Melissa, but the apartment is a gut-wrenching shamble of a home. There is little worth saving except for a few photos and a note that is discovered on the crate beside the bed. It is unfinished, but in the two scribbled lines, Melissa discovers secrets about her family that she never could have imagined. 

Can two very different women embark on a journey that explores a long-buried need for forgiveness, hope, and redemption?

PRAISE FOR THE CHRISTMAS NOTE:
“While this story certainly has a holiday setting, the emphasis is on love and generosity which will warm hearts at any time. The audio edition is especially affecting as read by the author, Donna VanLiere, who also gave us the Christmas Hope series…Many will be adding this audio to their list of favorite holiday stories.” – All Things Good and More 

“Author VanLiere does a wonderful job narrating the story. She gives warmth and compassion to the characters… THE CHRISTMAS NOTE is a heart-warming story perfect for the holidays”Thoughts in Progress
