A Christmas When The West Was

(4.5 stars)

A very different, realistic, interesting story! I appreciated it and Mr. Wales reading of it. He reads slowly and with expression stories unknown to me.

Just exquisite. Beautifully written. Harsh and yet heroic and merciful. Simply a lovely Christmas tale. Thanks to both writer and reader!

I thought this was a great story, which moved along quickly and concisely. At no time did the story drag, to where one's mind would become lost. It was very pointed and direct, as was the narrator who's voice kept the listener transfixed to the coming events. The only draw back to the text is that it lacked some details in certain places and that I felt it stopped abruptly.
