The first week of December is a great time to re-read stories. There is one written by Richard Paul Evans that I highly recommend.
(Image Below):Inside the cover of my copy of this book the price tag is still there from 1995. Now, it sits proudly on my bookshelf with all my other books about Christmas.
*Summary: The Christmas Box on the author's website.
"So begins The Christmas Box, the touching story of a widow and the young family who moves in with her. Rick, Keri, and their 4-year-old daughter, Jenna, are hired as caretakers and are welcomed into the Victorian home of Mary Parkins, an elderly widow, just before the holiday season. As the relationship between Mary and the family develops we learn that Mary’s past sorrows are compelling her to share an important message with Richard. But will he understand her message in time? A heartwarming story of parental love, healing, and Christmas."
