πŸŽ„ The Christmas Train πŸŽ„ by David Baldacci

Tom Langdon has to find his way home for Christmas but he’ll need a miracle to get there

A Christmas tale that will take you on the ride of your life…

Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington to LA in time for Christmas. Forced to take the train across the country because of a slight ‘misunderstanding’ at airport security, he begins a journey of self-discovery and rude awakenings, mysterious goings-on and thrilling adventures, screwball escapades and holiday magic.

He has no idea that the locomotives pulling him across America will actually take him into the rugged terrain of his own heart, where he will rediscover people’s essential goodness and someone very special he believed he had lost.

In equal parts hilarious, poignant, suspenseful and thrilling, The Christmas Train is a delightful journey filled with memorable characters who have packed their bags with as much wisdom as mischief…

Part detective story, part disaster movie, part romance, this is a brilliant, heart-warming holiday tale.


The Christmas TrainΒ is an enjoyable journey which will touch your life with the miracle of Christmas.

David Baldacci brings us this sweet holiday story which has all the makings of a heartwarming classic. Through the eyes of Tom Langdon we meet quirky characters which make this christmas journey an adventure they will never forget.

A brilliant Christmas read with a difference. It is not the usual read you would expect from this author but its certainly one I would highly recommend reading – especially at this time of year.

I have never seen the film adaptation, however it is on Channel 5 this weekend so I will be watching to see how it plays out on screen….
