What a great little gem This story reminded me a little of the Prince and the pauper, Jonah really is the poor little rich boy, such a good and sweet child, but his parents don t want him, so his school and choir is his home Callum, I loved him, he s poor and has a stressed mom and an absent father and an annoying sister and ADHD as well, but he s loved and has a home. Callum lets his feelings out, always in motion and talking and hyper where as Jonah is so quiet and self contained These two so different boys strike up a friendship, every Christmas they spend all their time together, that lasts until they have a falling out. And now it s the one that got away . I loved seeing the boys they were and the men they are I so wish this had been a longer story, I would have loved to see of their time together as children and their t This one This one is soooooo good I love the quiet Christmas books that don t rely on holiday craziness and are just plain beautiful in their simplicity Not that I don t love me some crazy too, but stories like this are the best kinds of Christmas hugs I ll always remember these characters and would love to read of Callum and Jonah.
This is a lovely little Christmas novella about two men who had been childhood friends reuniting after being apart for many years The boy chorister and the hyperactive and daring local boy meet again at the Christmas market in the cathedral close, where they had played together as children I loved the very Englishness not a word, I know of this story with its visions of boy choirs, stony cathedrals, and roasting chestnuts I enjoyed the strong sense of fate and the way Jonah knew at once, with calm certainty, that Callum was his future I guess I m a romantic at heart. A feel good Christmas book about art, music, and friendships spanning than a decade A story of love, destiny, and second chances. There were moments, he d always believed, when you could feel your life changing around you He could feel that weight in the air now, every crisp detail of the medieval walls around him heavy with significance. Definite must read to keep you warm for the holidays. Re read 2015 Loved it very much Just Perfect 5 Awesome stars 3. 5 starsThe story was structured into present and past chapters Ten years after an argument and hurtful words separated them, Jonah reunited with his child best friend Callum At first, the time switch between present and past pushed me out of the story I wasn t prepared for such structure However, after awhile, it was getting easier, and I actually enjoyed the past portion of the story. There was something innocent with the two best friends, coming from different family background Jonah was a lonely little rich boy, a child chorister, whose family was too busy to have Christmas with him while Callum was slightly poorer, a father who was not around and an over worked mother, but never felt like he was unloved None of this social situation mattered for the two kids I loved that additional little plot of Callum having ADHD as well. I would love for the novella to be a little longer th ½ Gaudete ↠´ Well that was lovely No steam to speak of, but a boatload of sweetness I didn t even mind the frequent flashbacks. 5 starsI freaking LOVED this book It was so well written I felt like I was in the setting, watching from a distance, while reading Jonah and Callum are characters that will stay with me There s nothing missing here but I d love to read about these two.
