Lost December Author:Richard Paul Evans From one of America’s most beloved storytellers comes his most spiritual book since The Christmas Box. “It has been said that sometimes the greatest hope in our lives is just a second chance to do what we should have done right in the first place. This is the story of my second chance.” -- Prologue of Lost December — When ... more »Luke Crisp graduates from business school, 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 fund, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of reckless indulgence.
But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled, alone, and too ashamed to ask his father for help, Luke secretly takes a lowly job at one of his father’s copy centers. There he falls in love with a struggling single mother and begins to understand the greatest source of personal joy.

Let me start by saying that I consider myself to be one of Richard Paul Evans's greatest fans. I've read everything he's written (except children's stories) and have loved them all!This book was a real departure from his usual Christmas season books.
Many people I know either hate or don't understand the Parable of the Prodigal Son. If they truly want to understand it, they should read this book. It is disturbing, upsetting, not-RPE type stuff and spot on!
When I started LOST DECEMBER, I was confused. Where was the sweet Evans's love story? What was this strangely disturbing book going to turn into? What it turned into was an exceptionally good parable of its own.
Read this one. I think you'll really find it wonderful!
