(168)The Christmas Box

Okay, Okay, I know you must be getting sick of my Richard Paul Evans binge. I think I only have two left after this one and I promise to spread them out.

The Christmas Box was a fast read. Maybe 45 minutes tops. I am sure I am the last person in the world to read this book or know of this story, so I will keep it brief. A young couple move into a mansion to help take care of an elderly lady. Instead it is the elderly lady who takes care of the family and shows them, especially the father, what the first gift of Christmas is.

From what I understand, The Christmas Box is the book that started the Christmas Story franchise for Richard Paul Evans. It was the book that he built an empire on. The story was incredibly touching, but very brief. A fast read to put you in the true Holiday spirit.

I read this one last year around Christmas time, and really liked it. I just finished A Christmas Gift by R. William Bennet, also a quick read, but it was so good, and a definite tear jerker. All these christmas books need to be read with kleenex..lol!
