The story is about a stubborn prideful father in his lonely old age, his longtime friend who wants to help the father, and the little children who come to visit over Christmas and help the old father learn how to love again.
The final hour is especially touching and tense–with an illness and death looming. Yet, this story ends on a heartfelt and hopeful note.
And at just under four hours, “The Christmas Hirelings” audiobook can be leisurely listened to over two nights. I usually like to split up even the shorter audiobooks–like this one–into different days of listening, and savoring each moment.
I highly recommend “The Christmas Hirelings” by Mary Elizabeth Braddon in audiobook form performed by Richard Armitage! I loved it!
Wishing you a lovely day! Hugs <3 & Cheers! Grati ;->
