Publisher's Summary

From wonderful storyteller and author of the best-selling phenomenon The Christmas Box, a new holiday novel based on the story of Joseph and the coat of many colors.

Joe is forced out of the family business by his jealous siblings. Moving on to another company, he soon becomes chief advisor to the CEO. But when the economy turns, Joe's siblings need his help to save the family business.

Based on the Old Testament story about Joseph and the coat of many colors and including a love story, A Winter Dream can be embraced for its message of forgiveness by believers and nonbelievers alike.

I may have just found a new favorite author. This is the first book I have real written by Evans. I plan to read all his others.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Winter Dream?

This book is a modern story of a popular Bible story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The letter that the father wrote to his son, Joseph, was very meaningful to me.

Great contemporary reselling of the Joseph story!

A WINTER DREAM is a modern parable based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his family. In this story, Joseph's father is a Vietnam war hero who now runs a very successful advertising agency in Colorado.

When Joseph comes up with a winning slogan for a bank campaign, his father's congratulations and pride lead him to pass on his Vietnam's bomber jacket to Joseph rather than the eldest son. This becomes the last straw for his older brothers.

This creative re telling continues, with the addition of an intriguing love interest who further complicates Joseph's life. As in the Biblical story, love, loyalty and forgiveness are the basis of life changing events for everyone. Excellently repurposed story for today's readers!!

Reading Mr. Evans Books is a Holiday Tradition

Each holiday I look forward to reading one of Mr. Evans novels. This year's is a retelling of Joseph being sold in to Egypt. While some of the small details seemed to be a bit of a reach, the overall integrity of the story holds up. I found myself very touched by the treatment of the relationship between the main character and his beloved Father. I had never thought of this story from the point-of-view of Jacob -- and reading this book sent me right back to the original text in The Old Testament. I hope this little holiday tradition continues long into the future.

Bible scripture meets a modern story!

I was very moved by this modern day telling of the story of Joseph. The book is well narrated where the heart of the character shines through. A must read for the holiday spirit!

Too predictive

Given the story is written after the biblical story, but any reader knew what would happen before the event. Maybe if you don’t know the Bible, it might be better, but I was disappointed in this book. Way too predictive.
