~ My Review 

Oh my goodness, this story was just the most precious little thing ever!! ^_^ 

Last year, I won a giveaway of a bundle of audiobooks/dramas. This was included and when I saw that it was Chrismasy (and connected to WWI, according to Goodreads :D) I wanted to listen right away! Unfortunately, it slipped my mind...until this year. I got to listen to it back in November though, and I loved it oh, so much! 

I mean, c'mon y'all, there's WWI, there's a modern-day veteran (who may or may not be an amputee and a hero) and there's postal workers. Not to mention, a cute kid, a heartbroken schoolteacher, and a letter that will touch them all. <3

I truly enjoyed this little story with its endearing message of light and bringing light to the darkness! <3 

( case you're confused...Margaret Hill McCarter wrote the original book, and Lamplighter Theatre did the audiodrama. So I'm technically reviewing the audio. xD)



  1. Lampligher is fantastic! And this audio drama is amazing as usual.

    1. I haven't listened to many of theirs, but this one was so great! :D

    2. The white Gypsy is personally my favorite! It literally keeps you on the edge of your seat!! :D

  2. I should see if I can find this book at my local library. Sounds like a heartwarming read!

    P.S. Would appreciate it if you could come over and visit my blog
