What a marvelous retelling of the Old Testament Story of Joseph and the technicolor coat! As usual Richard Paul Evans has woven an old story with modern characters and events and succeeded in telling a gripping story where everything turns out positively.

Joseph suffers the wrath of his stepbrother,s who are jealous of their father's love for him, and pays for it. He loses everything he has but builds again with his intrinsic abilities and is able to rebuild his life not only to the same extent but better.

A wonderful Christmas story from Evans once again.
