Publisher's Summary

Christmas Eve, 1936. On a foggy December night, a pregnant woman walks out in front of a trolley bus and is knocked unconscious. She is rushed to the Nightingale hospital, and a healthy baby is delivered. But the mother claims to have lost her memory, and cannot believe that the child is hers. It seems that the Nightingale nurses may need to perform a Christmas miracle.

bit disappointing

narrative gets a bit confusing, would be better with more than one person odd as a short story coming after the main books

Very enjoyable

If you could sum up A Child Is Born in three words, what would they be?

Warm gentle interesting

What about Penelope Freeman’s performance did you like?

She is extremely easy to listen to. She uses different voices for each character, very professional reader

Short but sweet

Great story but I wish it was longer. Penelope Freeman's narration is great as usual.
