This is such a great book, very needed in our times. She speaks with such sincerity it made me cry. I think this is an Australian thing to speak with so much sincerity. My favourite part was when she spoke About the return to the cyclic nature of life instead of the linear which is very masculine. Which sees things in a constant flow of destruction and resurrection we need to flow with. The only thing I wish included she included was reflection on the hyper rationality of our times on the domination of logic and reason over emotional and intuitive understanding

I found the heavy intellectualism ruined the poetics

I wish it was more poetic and mythical and less intellectual I found it boring and cold nose parts and whisper more emotion in the whole book.

A very important book

A very important well written book, this is life changing for me. She carefully unravels the hyper rationality of our time and looks to re court the mystery again. I believe in this book I think it's to be required reading for everyone. My only slight is that Blackie suffers from her own hyper rationality but really can't help it she has a sharp intellect but trusting in her intuitive all knowing self she will no doubt do even greater things. The narrator is also absolutely perfect.

This is the absolute best book, I've listen to it a second time already. the narrator is incredible she does the voices so well that I really came riveted to the story. I fell in love with Riley and felt such empathy for Grace and saw a lot of myself in her . The snowflake inn was so cosy and such a wonderful place to spend time in this book is a lot more festive than the Christmas cottage there's a lot of Christmas scenes with cookies and hot chocolate, it was really a comforting book through difficult times in my life . I'm so grateful to Samantha chase writing these books they are so comforting to me and the only books I can listen to. I very highly recommend this book.

This had everything I wanted, a small town like the one in Gilmore girls, cabin cabin, a tiny house, Christmas and a love story I really was looking forward to this book and I like Samantha chases other books very much. But this was ruined by Awful narration it sounded really lower class and like a Bronx accent or something accent I'm not familiar with American accent horrible I had to return the book
