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.

Syrupy sophomoric

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

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.

enjoyable story, unpleasant listen

This is a typical Richard Paul Evans read with a message and a happy ending. I must admit I was actually "surprised" by a few of the events in the story which was great. While I enjoyed the story, I really had a hard time with the narrator. I cringed waiting for him to inhale through his nose and lick his lips. There are several parts where I had to stop listening for a while because I was so distracted by the narrator. I prefer when Richard Paul Evans narrates his own books as he does in The Walk.
