There were a few times when I wondered who was being talked about & what was going on. Suddenly it seemed like I'd entered another story but eventually I figured out that the story went back in time to when the doctor was a child. Did Santa just come out from the blue in one chapter? Why? I repeated the last couple of chapters & still am not 100% sure of the ending. It's more of a drama with some Christmas settings. Basically, a married doctor fell in love with his best friend's wife. The doctor's son figures this out & as a result is confused about love & relationships.

Interesting musings. But if you are looking for a heart-warming Christmas story this isn't it. Very sad.

charming. This was a perfect "listen" for the season.
