A heartwarming and inspirational Christmas novel in the tradition of The Christmas Box and Finding Noel from New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans. Sure to be a classic, this new tale brings to life the joy of the season and demonstrates the redemptive power of love: there is no hurt so great that love cannot heal it.
Nathan Hurst hated Christmas. For the rest of the world it was a day of joy and celebration; for Nathan it was simply a reminder of the event that destroyed his childhood until a snowstorm, a cancelled flight, and an unexpected meeting with a young mother and her very special son would show him that Christmas is indeed the season of miracles.
From the beloved author of the international bestseller The Christmas Box comes another timeless story of faith, hope, and healing.
The Gift is a sweet story to be read at Christmas. Nathan Hurst does not celebrate Christmas for very personal reasons. Then one day his flight is delayed and he meets single mom Addison, her children Colin and Elizabeth and all of their lives are changed forever.
The Gift shows what happens when a very unique ability (with consequences) becomes a news story and life gets out of hand. This story shows how greedy we can be as humans without regard for others. On the flip side, this novel also shows how love can and will overcome the greed.
If only more of us were like Colin, the world would be a better place. This is a novel that will touch your heart and you may possibly shed a tear or two. You will definitely feel better emotionally when you finish The Gift.
