    Curse you, Michael Malone CURSE YOU for keeping me up late at night and making me deplete half my stock of tissues.I read his novel The Four Corners of the Sky, which, despite it not being typical of my usual reading preferences, I thoroughly enjoyed When this was offered as a Free Fridays pick for the Nook, I jumped on it I expected a good read, perhaps a little dramatic considering the racial tones of the plot What I got was an emotional juggernaut.The story flows over 40 years and 12 Christma [...]

    I read this during the Christmas holiday after my husband died Strange as this may sound this book helped me at a time when reading books was something I loved but couldn t imagine ever doing again I hope this makes sense If not oh well it makes perfect sense to me

    The real question here is why this book is on my read and not my abandoned shelf Here s what I learned from this book 1 It s hard growing up as a smart African American in North Carolina in the 1960s But with the support of a loving family, you can become a rich doctor.2 It s even harder growing up as a beautiful blonde from a rich old money family You re destined to have major family strife and die an early death, despite your essential goodness.This is the kind of book that explains something [...]

    A few weeks ago The Last Noel was offered as a free book on both Nook and Kindle If you downloaded it but haven t gotten around to reading it, do yourself a favor read it The story is not about Christmas but each chapter takes place on Christmas Eve or Christmas Daye birthdays of the two central characters It s well written and has everything one looks for in a book It is a beautiful story about friendship and love that binds people with different racial backgrounds together Social issues such a [...]

    The Last Noel, by Michael MaloneI really do not know that my review will do this book justice This short story, focused on several decades of the lives of the main characters, Noni and the boy who would become her best friend, Kaye Noni and Kaye came from opposite walks of life, but they had a special bond which few people are blessed with these days I wanted for this book to be a bit longer, I felt that this book was well written, the characters well developed and the story line well done It wa [...]

    This book was a bit of a chameleon, or a surprise I started out entertained and interested, but as it wore on, it failed to captivate me, and just when I was thinking maybe I d set it aside in favor of something else, I realized that even though the writing wasn t that exciting and the story flagged in spots, I really wanted to know how it ended I thought I knew how it would end, but I was wrong It was utterly unpredictable to me, and I appreciate that in a story because it s so seldom the case [...]

    This was such a beautiful, touching story.Though the title implies a holiday read, it was so much The story takes place over 40 years Each part of the story is told at Christmas time The book touches on subjects such as family, friendship, racial and social issues, and love The characters are well developed and the writing is solid.I rarely give 5 star ratings and save them for the few books that really move me This was one of those books.Just a fair warning don t be caught without tissues whil [...]

    The structure twelve chapters that each take place on or near a particular Christmas in the thwarted love story of Kaye King and Noni Tilden makes this a good holiday choice while at the same time requiring too much summary, to cover the intervening time between the Christmases, at the expense of actual scenes Still, Malone is a good writer, and the final chapters are poignant and sad.

    Pamela
    Thank god, the young had no idea how ignorant they were, or they could never risk so much, never be so brave Noni and Kaye, two unlikely, yet perfectly suited friends met one snowy Christmas morning in the most unusual way And they became MY friends in every sense of the word For they were brilliantly written into existence with such distinct clarity and realism I was pulled into their lives with tangible atmospheric abandon I shared their childhood gaiety and spur of the moment whims I felt the [...]

    When I get a book like this, after a few pages I usually ether toss it in the trash or delete it from my nook reader Not this time After a few pages I was hooked This book offers a deep insight into southern society It covers the period for the 60 s through the 90 s Malone paints vivid word pictures that all all to real This story could have been about anyone that can trace their roots back then a few generations in the south It is a tragic love story, about a forbidden love, what could have be [...]

    Well, heavens to betsy whatever that means I was expecting to like this book then was expecting to hate it and have to admit that I m half and half I didn t hate it nor did I love it I skimmed several parts that seemed irrelevant then boo hooed my eyes out at the end Yes, that is a spoiler If you don t like tear jerkers even, stay away from this one It was a good reminder of what kind of lives people lived in the south beginning in the 60 s Hard for a black man and hard for the rich white woman [...]

    I enjoyed this book about two kids who meet on Christmas Eve, the day she turns 7 and the day before he does Kaye, the boy also known as John , is a poor black child from Philadelphia who s visiting his grandmother, whose family has worked for the girl s for generations The girl, Noelle, also known as Noni, is a descendent of the Gordons, the rich family who founded the town generations ago The story is told over the course of 12 Christmas Eves during Kaye and Noni s relationship It s at times t [...]

    I just finished washing my face and drying my tears after finishing this book What a beautiful love story I bought the Nook version as an oh well sort of deal might even have been the Free Friday offering , and I am so glad I did The story of a neighboring children, a poor black boy and a rich white girl, and their lives through several generations The guideline of the story you can find anywhere, but I was genuinely touched by the friendship these two people shared throughout their lives, good [...]

    Well wasn t that a lovely little gem of a book Broken down into twelve chapters, each celebrating twelve different Christmases between the 1950s to the 2000s, it is a story of Kaye, the little black boy that first comes to visit the little white girl, Noni on Christmas eve when they are each around 7 years old Both share their Christmas birthdays over the years Remember to keep those tissues handy when you reach the final two Christmas chapters.

    Sandy from Alaska Colón
    The book is centered around the 12 days of Christmas, each taking place in a different year and tells the story of the gift of love and friendship This is not really a Christmas story, but I think it is a wonderful story to read during the holiday season because it makes you think about what is important I loved this book I revieved a free copy from Barnes and Noble s free fridays for my nook It was very heartfelt and tissues are required

    Suzanne
    Fans of Nicholas Sparks and Richard Paul Evans will love this book An emotional roller coaster of the friendship turned love between a white girl who lives a privileged life in the North Carolina 60 s and the African American boy next door whose family is employed there.The story covers decades of their relationship, the heartbreaks, joy and alway there bond between them.I really enjoyed this book and will look for from this author.

    Sharon
    I found this book to be a very heart warming story of two very different people who became close friends Their relationship and its challenges many posed by their different race and social class, is revealed through descriptions of many different Christmas seasons, from their first meeting at age seven until the death of one A very heart warming book on goodness, friendship, love and sharing.

    Sherry H
    I was thinking this would be warm hearted and Christmas y.Well, it was Both But not what I wanted.A friendship story, a love story, a story of times that change and things that last For all of that, I liked it But pay attention to the title This has an ending And the ending didn t enhance my holiday spirit I m all sad now.

    Sharon
    What a beautifully written book The author wrote with such compassion and style that you just wanted to savor each page The story sucked you in from the first few paragraphs and never let you go I wish I wasn t done I will add Michael Malone to my favorite author list

    Linda
    A beautiful, sad, sweet love story I loved the chracters Noni Kaya Their love is doomed from the start, the time is not right, they live in North Carolina and one is African American, the other white Get your kleenex

    Powerful story of two children born on Christmas as they grow up together and apart As I read the final Christmas chapters on the commuter train home last night, I realized that I had tears in my eyes.

    A wonderful dynamic story spanning several decades I don t know how I came across this gem but I am glad I did the perfect holiday treasure

    A beautiful story of love unrealized.

    Jan Phillips
    I loved how the book showed how Kaye and Noni s life interacted over decades using only a specific time period per year I was hoping for a different ending, being the hopeless romantic that I am, but it was how it needed to be My first book by Michael Malone, but now I will be reading others.

    Linda Swick
    I enjoyed it very much It s easy to read and hard to put down Made me laugh and cry The characters were so well written it was easy to imagine being right there with all the time I will definitely recommend it to everyone.

    Loved this book It didn t go where you thought it would Very satisfying ending however a little personal for me.

    Marianne Shaker
    A sweet story of friendship and love over the years as two children grow up.

    NK
    At first, I thought this story to be too cliche Giving over to just reading through, I actually liked most of the characters.
