Listeners who may have wondered what ever happened to the angel Clarence Oddbody after IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE will soon fall under the sway of Bailey Ruth Raeburn, a newish member of Heaven's Department of Good Intentions. In this second book of her adventures she is sent to earth to protect a 4-year-old, solve a murder, and save Christmas. Narrator Ann Marie Lee has a jolly good time interpreting this fey spirit, portraying her joyous golden heart as well as her delight in the great clothes she gets to wear and her confidence in her own abilities (despite the many rules she manages to break). Sweet without being cloying, Lee deftly conveys Hart's delightful premise with such good cheer that listeners will be sorry when the story ends.
