Product Description

Novella adaptation of the screenplay "The Christmas Cave"

December 1960…

Thirteen year old Jenny Harper is exploring the caves with her brother Bill and their best friend Mike. They see a strange shimmering light up ahead. Bill rushes ahead, disappears around the bend.

Fade to present day…

Thirteen year old Jack and his twelve year old sister Amanda visit their Grandma Jenny in the mountains over the Christmas holiday.

They hear the story of a mythical cavern that Grandma went searching for fifty years earlier with her little brother Bill and their best friend Mike. Her brother was lost, never to be seen again.

Drawn to the mystery, Jack and Amanda meet up with Daniel Madsen, a local boy diagnosed with Leukemia and only months to live. He tells them of a boy who went into the caves a few days before Christmas, 1910 and came out three years later telling of "The Christmas Cave", a world of amazing colors and lights.

They find their way to the Christmas Cave and discover much more than they expected.

Jenny Miller, her brother Billy, and her friend Mike were exploring the local caves when her brother spotted colorful light ahead. Billy ran ahead and just around the bend and was gone. Jenny and Mike looked for hours but never found Billy.
Fifty years later, Jenny's son and his family have come to visit her on the mountain. Jenny's grandchildren decided to explore the caves after hearing the stories about the "Christmas" cave and Jenny's missing brother.
This is a well written and sweet story suitable for adults and children alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this story! 21 December 2012

The author's experience at character building shines through in The Christmas Cave! I could picture the characters down to their facial expressions which given the length of this novella, delighted me. To boot, I felt like I was led down a path of an adventure as the story was told. It's well written and delightfully entertaining. I recommend it highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great afternoon read 9 January 2013

This is a creative story with an unusual premise and an ending I didn't expect. I read quite a bit, and as much as I love romantic comedies and suspense (my two favorite genres), there's a predictability and pattern that they all seem to follow, and it gets old. The Christmas Cave was a refreshing change of pace, and I'm glad I read it.

Kind of makes me want to go spelunking, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tale of friendship and survival 10 September 2016
By Sandra F. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've read several of David Beshears books, so when I saw this on the readers list of the club I belong to, I got it right away. It's a short but really good read, suitable for both young adults as well as adults. Great premise - youths growing up in a mountainside community, free to roam the forest and nearby caves. A way of life many of us would envy! But freedom sometimes comes with a price as they soon find out, along with responsibility for one's actions and the results. For three young people, a day of exploration in a cave ends up with the loss of one and a lifetime commitment by the other two. The legal stuff says I have to include this: I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, so I could give an honest review. So - it's the same review I would have given it otherwise, because I really enjoyed it. I hope you do, too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and fun take. Great for Christmastime. 11 December 2015
By Creating-Serenity Reviews - Published on
Everyone hears about the Christmas Cave but nobody has seen it. Jenny, Mike, and Bill decide to go find it and although Jenny remembers seeing the bright, gorgeous, blue, red, and green lights, she cannot remember how they got there or how they lost Bill. He ran ahead and just disappeared.

Nobody has seen it since then, even though they have searched for Bill but somehow the myth has still spread about this wondrous place.

Years later Jenny’s grandchildren come for a visit and hear about the myth. Being kids they make a plan to go find the mysterious cave.

This is a really cute story, told over a little more than one day. The caves have been searched and searched before and after Bill disappeared but no evidence has shown the cave really exists. The kids are not put off track, of course, and decide to venture in.

This young adult is a light hearted mystery. Quite short but cute. There are a few heart-stopping moments but for the most part this could be told to anyone.

Narration by Dan Absalonson was good. Soft and quiet. It reminds me of something that would be perfect to listen to on Christmas Eve with the kids. The production was also good, no weird noises. I can’t remember if anything else was added in but there is when part, near the end, where in the story someone burps, so the narrator actually burps! I would prefer to skip those types of noises but it was just the once (that I can remember) so it did not take away from the story.

Received from author, through, in exchange for an honest review.
