The Gift Author:Richard Paul Evans Evans (The Christmas Box) returns with narrator Nathan Hurst, a frequently traveling, Tourette's-suffering security chief for a retail chain. When Nathan gets snowed in at the Denver airport at Thanksgiving, he offers half his hotel suite to a stranded needy family: recently divorced single mom Addison (a massage therapist), and her two children... more », Lizzy and Collin. Collin, who has leukemia, cures Nathan's Tourette's with his gift of healing touch. Exercising his secret gift makes Collin sicker, though, and as news of his healing powers eventually leaks out, leading to a demand for his services, his condition worsens. Nathan, meanwhile, feels emboldedened by his cure, and moves to address childhood woes when visiting his nursing home-bound mother. The tightly honed narrative, brimming with good intention to find courage in shared suffering, soon brings everyone together.« less

This was possibly the best book I've read! Richard Paul Evans writes with emotion that I can't describe. I read this book in three days! Very hard to put down! It's wonderfully written and I recommend it highly!
what an absolutely beautiful story. Evans did it again. I sat down and wanted to listen to this in one sitting, but didn't get the chance. I just wanted to reach out and hug Collin. Evans has a beautiful gift of writing about the human spirit. He does not disappoint.
