Review by: Falcon Ridge Publishing on Dec. 02, 2011 :
I had downloaded this story months ago, but only read it last night. It's a wonderful story, touching without being maudlin, about Walter, an older man dealing with some hard times, who finds unexpected grace on Christmas Eve. Highly recommended.

Review by: Gerald M. Weinberg on Feb. 05, 2011 :
I sometimes cry while reading, but not often—except when I'm reading the work of Susan Kroupa. Somehow, she knows the secret of fabricating tears out of mere words.
It's not simply one brand of tears. Walter Gunther's little Christmas-Night story starts with tears of sadness, sprinkles in tears of laughter, followed by tears of excitement, and then, in the end, tears of purest joy.
Why all these tears? I don't want to spoil the surprises of this wonderful tale, but I will tell you that Walter receives the greatest imaginable Christmas present. Don't wait until Christmas to gift yourself with one little night music.

Close your eyes, and you can almost hear the music...
...of course, that would make it rather difficult to read this delightful story!
Walter works in a music store, but his boss is only concerned with making sales, and clearly doesn't share Walter's views on customer service, or his appreciation of the the old masters. Then, after the store closes one magical Christmas Eve, Walter has an experience that makes it all worthwhile.
Author Susan Kroupa's love of the great composers is evident in this charming tale of music and magic. If you love classical music, this is a story you won't want to miss!

Ha! I have been in music stores and heard people mispronounce composers names. It makes me cringe just like Walter. This story made me smile, laugh and tear up. What a fun read!
