Lost December: A Novel (Google eBook)
From one of Americaís most beloved storytellers comes his most spiritual book since The Christmas Box. The New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box and The Walk series returns with a modern-day, Christmas-themed retelling of the story of the prodigal son.
It has been said that sometimes the greatest hope in our lives is just a second chance to do what we should have done right in the first place. This is the story of my second chance.
When Luke Crisp graduates from business school, his father, CEO and cofounder of Fortune 500 Crispís Copy Centers, is ready to share some good news: he wants to turn the family business over to his son. But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust fund, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of reckless indulgence.
But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled, alone, and too ashamed to ask his father for help, Luke secretly takes a lowly job at one of his fatherís copy centers. There he falls in love with a struggling single mother and begins to understand the greatest source of personal joy.
Lost December is New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evansís modern-day holiday version of the biblical story of the prodigal son, a powerful tale of redemption, hope, and the true meaning of love.
