“A heartwarming holiday tale [that] resonates with poignancy and deep emotion.” (Romantic Times)

あらすじ・解説

New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah is beloved by readers around the world for her unique blend of powerful emotion and exquisite storytelling. In Comfort & Joy, she offers a modern-day fairy tale - the story of a woman who gets a miraculous chance at happiness.

Joy Candellaro once loved Christmas more than any other time of the year. Now, as the holiday approaches, she is at a crossroads in her life; recently divorced and alone, she can’t summon the old enthusiasm for celebrating. So without telling anyone, she buys a ticket and boards a plane bound for the beautiful Pacific Northwest. When an unexpected detour takes her deep into the woods of the Olympic rainforest, Joy makes a bold decision to leave her ordinary life behind - to just walk away - and thus begins an adventure unlike any she could have imagined.

In the small town of Rain Valley, six-year-old Bobby O’Shea is facing his first Christmas without a mother. Unable to handle the loss, Bobby has closed himself off from the world, talking only to his invisible best friend. His father Daniel is beside himself, desperate to help his son cope. Yet when the little boy meets Joy, these two unlikely souls form a deep and powerful bond. In helping Bobby and Daniel heal, Joy finds herself again.      

But not everything is as it seems in quiet Rain Valley, and in an instant, Joy’s world is ripped apart, and her heart is broken. On a magical Christmas Eve, a night of impossible dreams and unexpected chances, Joy must find the courage to believe in a love - and a family - that can’t possibly exist, and go in search of what she wants...and the new life only she can find.

Like Reading a Hallmark Movie

If you’re looking for a corny Christmas read, this is it. Beyond fictional plot with a fairy tale ending. While this story seems like it is about character development, the protagonist still ends up placing the source of her happiness on other people instead of finding it within herself.

Disappointed and Bla

I have read three books by Kristin Hannah and really loved all three, so when I saw this one, I didn't hesitate to get it. Unfortunately, like 2020, the book was a big disappointment. Although I tried, I couldn't even finish. The story was cliche, boring, and unbelievable. In my opinion, the narrator was good, but her more "mature voice" did not match to the main character that was still in her 30's. The sisters voice was lousy and really hard to listen to. The other characters voices were fine, but overall, the book just wasn't worth the credit.

I didn’t hate it

I am not fond of “magic” stories even Christmas ones and wasn’t expecting how much you have to take what is happening with a grain of salt and just let go of reality. Glad it wasn’t any longer.

Great listen

I really loved this book. It was short but so beautiful. The only thing I wished were different is the voice of Stacy. Doesn’t seem to fit her.

Believe in Magic!

I am a big Kristin Hannah fan and downloaded this without even reading the synopsis. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, but I was very pleasantly surprised! It turned out to be a lovely story about hope, forgiveness, and believing without seeing. A very heartfelt story about the magic of Christmas! I thought the narrator was great, but the only thing I thought was odd was the voice of Stacey. She sounded like an old lady, but she was the younger of the 2 sisters!

A disappointment all around

I have read and enjoyed several of this author’s books, so a light holiday selection by her seemed like a no-brainer. Unfortunately this was not her best work. The story was ridiculously unbelievable and worse than a Hallmark Christmas movie. The narrator didn’t help one bit. I’m sorry I wasted a credit on this one.

Sadly disappointed

Struggled with the story and the narrator's voice. I kept with the story but disliked it completely. Not the kind of Kristin Hannah book I was expecting.

Super sweet

This book just brought me joy. I listened to the entire thing in 2 days, and it was a perfect story for the holidays.
