The Christmas Boxby Richard Paul Evans
Synopses & Reviews
Since it was first published, more than seven million people have been touched by the magic of The Christmas Box, a holiday classic that is as beloved in our time as A Christmas Carol was in Dickens's.
When Richard Paul Evans wrote The Christmas Box, he intended it as a private expression of love for his two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson. Though he often told them that he loved them, he didn't feel that they could ever really understand the depth of his feelings until they had experienced the joy of rearing their own children, and by that time their relationship would have changed forever. In writing The Christmas Box, he hoped that at some time in the future they would read the book and know of their father's love.
As Evans began to write, he was amazed at the inspiration that flowed into his mind and heart. He completed the moving story of a widow and the young family who comes to live with her in less than six weeks, and bound twenty copies to give as Christmas presents to family and friends. In the following weeks, those twenty copies were shared and passed along from family to family, from friend to friend, and what began as a tale for two little girls became a message of miracles, hope, and healing for people throughout the world.
A special anniversary edition of the unforgettable Christmas classic that has touched the hearts of millions, “the most popular holiday tale since Tiny Tim” (Newsweek).
The Christmas Box, the touching story of a widow and the young family who moves in with her, was written in 1992 by Richard Paul Evans, then an unknown writer, who wrote the novella for his two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson. He completed it in less than six weeks and made twenty copies to give to friends and family as Christmas gifts. In the following weeks those twenty copies were passed from family member to family member, and from friend to friend. That heartwarming novella—The Christmas Box—went on to become an international bestselling phenomenon, bringing hope and healing to everyone who listens to it. Now, The Christmas Box 20th Anniversary Edition will introduce this holiday classic to a new generation of listeners searching to connect with the meaning of the season.
“The true miracle of The Christmas Box is in the thousands of spirits it has lifted and the hearts it has healed” (Mary Higgins Clark).
