"As you read my story, there is something I want you to understand. That in spite of all the painand#8212;past, present and that still to comeand#8212;I wouldnand#8217;t have done anything differently. Nor would I trade the time I had with him for anythingand#8212;except for what, in the end, I traded it for." andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Beth Cardall has a secret. For eighteen years, she has had no choice but to keep it to herself, but on Christmas Eve 2008, all that is about to change. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;For Beth, 1989 was a year marked by tragedy. Her life was falling apart: her six-year-old daughter, Charlotte, was suffering from an unidentifiable illness; her marriage transformed from a seemingly happy and loving relationship to one full of betrayal and pain; her job at the dry cleaners was increasingly at risk; and she had lost any ability to trust, to hope, or to believe in herself. Then, on Christmas Day, as she rushed through a blizzard to the nearest 7-Eleven, Beth encountered Matthew, a strikingly handsome, mysterious stranger, who would single-handedly change the course of her life. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Who is this man, and how does he seem to know so much about her? He pursues her relentlessly, and only after sheand#8217;s fallen deeply in love with him does she learn his incredible secret, changing the world as she knows it, as well as her own destiny. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;From the andlt;Iandgt;New York Times andlt;/Iandgt;bestselling author of the beloved classics andlt;Iandgt;The Christmas Box andlt;/Iandgt;and andlt;Iandgt;The Christmas List andlt;/Iandgt;comes a breathtaking story of the transcendent power of love.
"The bestselling Evans is back with another earnest tale set around a certain holiday in December, but this time he's got something up his sleeve. Beth has everything, a loving husband, an adorable daughter ('a joyful combination of lunacy and grace'), and a great job where she works with friends. But when her daughter becomes mysteriously ill, and she discovers that her husband is dying, her perfect life falls apart. She is soon impoverished and embittered, and still can't discern the source of her daughter's illness. Then she meets a handsome stranger, who diagnoses the illness and convinces the wary Beth to trust again, only to disappear with the home equity loan he pushed her into getting. Devastated once again, Beth's resolve is tested when he returns with a truly unbelievable story. Believing him means altering the entire course of her life. Evans combines his usual holiday themes with a bizarre twist lifted straight from science fiction. Readers will undoubtedly feel attached to Beth, even as they struggle to understand the bizarre relationship she finds herself entering into. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
