Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Richard Paul Evans is always a VERY good Read."

    Evans delivered again. This is a very good book and the narrator is excellent. I always wait for the next Evans book every Christmastime.

    Story
    "A bit maudlin for me"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was well spent in that i was cleaning the house as i listened.


    What aspect of John Dossett’s performance would you have changed?

    It was bit too far fetched


    Could you see Lost December being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad listen. Enjoyable, but predictable
