As a thank you for all your support and encouragement that you’ve given me over this last difficult year, I wanted to give you a Christmas gift. What could I do, I wondered. My thoughts drifted back to the days of primary school nativities, where I was inevitably a narrator as I could read aloud well. Why not draw on that skill now too? I don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy being read to, whatever age. There’s also something particularly soothing about classic Christmas tales. They feel so timeless and familiar, coming out like an annual tradition in themselves. Listening to them also provides a calm moment of joy, time out of the hustle and bustle and rush of the season.
These stories are as much part of our Christmas celebrations as the tree or the presents, thus this is my Christmas gift to you: chapter one and chapter two of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. I hope you enjoy listening.
Many thanks again for your encouragement and support over the last year, I truly do appreciate it.
I hope you have the merriest of merriest Christmases!
With love and warmest wishes, Rae xx
