"In this new holiday-themed novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Mistletoe Promise and The Walk, a man receives the best Christmas present he could ask for: the chance to re-write the past. Jason Chercher is not doing well in love or life. Just two weeks after his wife leaves him he receives a phone call that his estranged mother has passed away, days before Christmas--leaving her home and all her belongings to him. Frankly, he would like to see everything just burned. But curiosity about his past and anxiety about his future fuels him to make the drive from Salt Lake City to her home in Medford, Oregon. Maybe cleaning out her house will be slightly less depressing than spending the holidays, alone, watching re-runs of Christmas classics. While going through her things he comes upon her diary and the record of his childhood. He learns that his mother suffered from severe depression and during that difficult time he was taken care of by a young, unwed mother who was living with his family. The only clue he has to the woman's identity is her name: Noel, which is an eerily fitting discovery on Christmas Eve. As Jason reads the diary he begins to uncover the source of his pain in relationships and understand that what he believed to be the truth of his past was actually a lie. That's when he begins a journey to find Noel, wondering if she might hold the truth he needs to bring him peace and love"--

Sweet Christmas Story

Richard Paul Evans writes a Christmas themed book every year. He writes about life experiences that anyone could have, from the very deepest tragedies to life changing events. This year, his novel The Noel Diary is a sweet, touching read that can be savored in one sitting.

The Noel Diary has three well-developed characters. Jacob, a young man who is a very successful writer, despite childhood trauma and neglect. Sarah, a young woman, who is searching for her birthmother. Noel, a married woman who lives in the suburbs and is in need of healing. This is a story of hurt, overcoming obstacles, healing, resolution and growth. Set in Salt Lake City during the month of December it was not necessary a holiday book, but the story line took place around Christmas.

I really enjoyed this quick and easy read. I highly recommend this book for all the Hallmark movie lovers out there. This book is right up your alley. This was a great feel-good book to read at Christmas time.
