Celebrate the Winter Solstice with the final episode of the A Year of Blessings audioplay series!

Taiwanese mandarin ducks Clara and Cici are identical twins who have been in rivalry since birth and are now estranged, but their daughters Jamie and Mallory are tightly connected–thanks to the interwebs. The two BFF cousins hatch Operation Double Happiness to unite their family for the Winter Solstice celebration in Taiwan. Jamie and Mallory narrate their mission to us in this heist-style, spy-movie episode—think The Incredibles meets 007. Will the wily cousins be able to restore family harmony?
