Product Description

In this new holiday-themed novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Mistletoe Promise and The Walk, a man receives the best Christmas present he could ask for: the chance to re-write the past.

Jason Chercher is not doing well in love or life. Just two weeks after his wife leaves him he receives a phone call that his estranged mother has passed away, days before Christmas—leaving her home and all her belongings to him. Frankly, he would like to see everything just burned. But curiosity about his past and anxiety about his future fuels him to make the drive from Salt Lake City to her home in Medford, Oregon. Maybe cleaning out her house will be slightly less depressing than spending the holidays, alone, watching re-runs of Christmas classics.

While going through her things he comes upon her diary and the record of his childhood. He learns that his mother suffered from severe depression and during that difficult time he was taken care of by a young, unwed mother who was living with his family. The only clue he has to the woman’s identity is her name: Noel, which is an eerily fitting discovery on Christmas Eve. As Jason reads the diary he begins to uncover the source of his pain in relationships and understand that what he believed to be the truth of his past was actually a lie. That’s when he begins a journey to find Noel, wondering if she might hold the truth he needs to bring him peace and love.

Great romance, great escape!
By , Submitted on 2018-05-24

I look forward to these Richard Paul Evans books that come out every year. I love the way he writes, his plots and characters are always so great. His books are always easy to read and just great! This one was no different.

I liked Jacob in this story. I felt way sad for him, though. The way he was treated as a child by his mom just made me want to cry. His whole past was just sad, but it made him a great man, a great writer and really just compassionate. I liked that he was willing to work to clean out his mom’s house and how he learned why she was the way she was.

Then he meets Rachel. Rachel needs his help to find her mom. I loved that he was willing to help. He was also honorable at a time when he really didn’t have to be. Jacob is the kind of man that every woman wants to meet.

This is a great romance. I loved the time I was able spend escaping into this story!
