Review on The Healing Power of Eggnog
Every year during the Advent season I love listening to my favourite Xmas Audio Books. Jamie Fessenden's The Healing power of Eggnog being one of them. This is something sweet for my heart, with a happy smile at the end.
Will Sutherland returns home for Christmas after 4 years of absence. He is totally baffled to find out his parents have a good-looking house guest, they almost treat like he would be his younger brother.
Ryan wonders what is eating Will and why Diane and Garry are acting so weird,like walking on egg shells. It takes some Christmas party preperations, tree decorating and several cups of homemade eggnog until the old conflict in this family is revealed and Will and Ryan's tender feelings of comradery turn into something more.
Robbie Ravena does a brilliant job narrating this heartwarming story of love and forgivness. His interpretations of young, emotional Ryan and cautious, irritated and hurt Will are well done. Their getting closer might feel a bit fast, but the hot scenes are gentle and their conversations are beliveable.
Amazing again how much Jamie Fessenden has packed into this short story of just 2 hours listening time. I had been very touched by Diane and Gary and their herculian effort to first realize they had been misled by a religious person,then turn their lives around and try to mend things with their son, although they don't really know what to do and say. Talking about important things never has been a strong skill for the Sutherland family. With Ryan acting as a catalysator, this miracle finally happens.
