Publisher's Description

From one of America’s most beloved storytellers comes his most spiritual book since The Christmas Box. The New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box and The Walk series returns with a modern-day, Christmas-themed retelling of the story of the prodigal son.

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.

When Luke Crisp graduates from business school, his father, CEO and cofounder 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.

Lost December is New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans’s modern-day holiday version of the biblical story of the prodigal son, a powerful tale of redemption, hope, and the true meaning of love.

    This book brings the prodigal son's story to the present day. A great way to share God's redemptive love with someone who needs the story but doesn't feel the Bible is for them.

    Lost December is a powerful, age old tale, set in modern times. It will open your eyes to the stark realities of life. An account of love, life, loss and love again, full of passion and the struggles of the rich and the poor. This story is fictional, but there is deep truth in its telling.

    Richard has again created an exceptional work with characters you will learn to love and others to despise. Full of desperate situations, the realities of the lost and forgotten, and the redeeming glimmer of hope it is truly a tale lived by many.

    Lost December is a perfect read to awaken our sense of caring in a world full of lost souls.

    Lost December is a good book it is a modern telling of the prodigal Son. This book is so much better then Promise Me. Yes up there with the impact of The Christmas Box. The Thing that does bother me is this For all who know the story of the prodigal son know that it includes a Brother. Why did he leave the brother out of the story. It also show why we should not cut ourselves off for those who care and are only tring to protect you. I was able to get this from my local public library . It is a quick read The story moves along and keep you turning pages I read it in about 3 and 1/2 hours.Glad he returned to the kind of very good writing I have enjoyed from him in the past.
