*REVIEW* "Little Drummer Boy" by Sydney Logan

A holiday short story by Amazon bestselling author Sydney Logan.

It’s Christmas Eve, and Justin Banks is on the hunt for a last-minute gift for his wife, Megan. With the help of a homeless man and the beat of a drum, Justin stumbles upon the one thing Megan has always wanted. The one thing money can’t buy.

It's amazing what we can hear if we just take a moment and really listen.


My Thoughts

"Listen, son. Just listen."

WOW okay, so I couldn't even type that quote without getting teary eyed. I'm dead serious.

"Little Drummer Boy" is a beautiful short Christmas story.

In this story, Sydney Logan has (yet again!) managed to make you fall in love with characters.. laugh with them, cry (read: sob) with them. You feel the love between Justin and Megan, and then you feel the loss between them, and then a little drummer boy comes along, and your heart just swells. It really is a tale of "stop, take a breath, just listen", and the meaning behind it in this story is profound.
(ps.. still fighting tears writing this..)

I have been a fan of Sydney Logan's writing style since the first book I read by her, and even with a novella length book, she still delivers a full story. I loved "The Little Drummer Boy", and you will definitely be seeing it on my 'Christmas Books' post later this year.
