    "A Gift"

    As I sat and processed AP checks, I just couldn't stop listening. It is a short read, but what a GIFT. Certainly makes one think twice about what we take for granted every day.

    Story
    "True meaning of Christmas"
    What did you like best about The Christmas Box? What did you like least?

    Best - The ending and how the theme of the book really all came together.

    The least - The narration was very boring and not captivating.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Richard Paul Evans? Why or why not?

    Absolutely, I have loved all of his books prior to this one, so I'll just chalk this one up to bad narration.


    Was The Christmas Box worth the listening time?

    Not really

    "Great Listen"

    I have really enjoyed listening to Richard Paul Evans books. This Book really lets you know what Christmas is all about. I think so often times we get caught up in the gift giving and forget the real spirit of christmas.

    "Sweet Christmas Story"

    A good, sweet, heartwarming Christmas story. Evans is gifted in the art of concise storytelling and this is a good book to listen to with the family during the holidays.

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    "A wonderful story that goes away from the title"

    The title of this book is misleading at first. The listener will be treated to a wonderful tale of a widow, her past, and the family that comes into her life. The end of the story caused me to have tears in my eyes AND my heart. Of course, I'm a sucker for any story that has nostalgia and deep feelings.
