A heartwarming tale for the Christmas season, Lost December is a modern-day, Christmas-themed retelling of the story of the prodigal son.
When Luke graduates from Wharton with his MBA, his father, CEO and co-founder of Fortune 500 Crisp’s Copy Centers, is ready to share some good news: he wants to turn the family business over to his son. But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust funds, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of wanton pleasure seeking.
But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled and alone, Luke takes a job at one of his father's copy centers. There he falls in love with a single mother and begins to understand the greatest source of personal joy.

Such a upbeat book, gives you a good feeling when you are finished listening.
Luke Crisp, he seemed like a all around nice guy
The story was a pretty typical
Even the dramatic moments failed to hit their mark.
Slow start and almost lost me because I felt the initial happenings were unrealistic. But I have a long commute and had no other books downloaded so I continued to listen. It quickly shifted and held me. The subtle modernization of the parable of the prodigal son slowly emerged. Some of the happenings were harsh, but made you think. I'd recommend it to a friend.
Say something about yourself!
The reviews for this book were so misleading--please--this book is full of such unbelievable exaggeration. If you can't get to church and like pedantic sophistry--by all means--buy this book. It was a waste of credit for me. If I want to read theology, I will look for Henri Nouwen.
