The Christmas List: A Novel by Richard Paul Evans

The Christmas List: A Novel by Richard Paul Evans

A heartwarming and inspirational Christmas novel in the tradition of The Christmas Box, Grace, The Gift, and Finding Noel. The New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box and The Walk series returns with a holiday novel of hope, love, and redemption.
Dear Reader,
When I was in seventh grade, my English teacher, Mrs. Johnson, gave our class the intriguing (if somewhat macabre) assignment of writing our own obituaries. Oddly, I dont remember much of what I wrote about my life, but I do remember how I died: in first place on the final lap of the Daytona 500. At the time, I hadnt considered writing as an occupation, a field with a remarkably low onthejob casualty rate.
What intrigues me most about Mrs. Johnsons assignment is the opportunity she gave us to confront our own legacy. How do we want to be remembered? That question has motivated our species since the beginning of time: from building pyramids to putting our names on skyscrapers.
As I began to write this book, I had two objectives: First, I wanted to explore what could happen if someone read their obituary before they died and saw, firsthand, what the world really thought of them. Their legacy.
Second, I wanted to write a Christmas story of true redemption. One of my familys holiday traditions is to see a local production of Charles Dickenss A Christmas Carol. I dont know how many times Ive seen it (perhaps a dozen), but it still thrills me to see the change that comes over Ebenezer Scrooge as he transforms from a dull, tightfisted miser into a penitent, "giddyasaschoolboy" man with love in his heart. I always leave the show with a smile on my face and a resolve to be a better person. Thats what I wanted to share with you, my dear readers, this Christmas a holiday tale to warm your season, your homes, and your hearts.
Merry Christmas...
