Description

Originally released as Courageous Characters, Fabulous Friends.

As the snow falls in Odyssey, the town enters a season of peace and quiet - NOT! Whit's grandchildren stop in for a very disquieting holiday visit. The Barclays entertain some unexpected and mysterious Christmas guests. But in the midst of these challenges, friends in Odyssey learn priceless lessons about bravery, compassion and a whole lot more.
These digitally remastered collections—available for the first time on CD — include bonus tracks, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes details! A fun-filled, full-color insert includes the following: original notes of the writers, never-before-heard stories from the recording studio, and a coupon for other Adventures in Odyssey products.

What are friends for? In this collection of super stories, the Odyssey gang learns some hard-won lessons about friends, foes, and a whole lot more.
