The Letter by Richard Paul Evans is a beautiful historical novel about love. It is the third book in the Christmas Box trilogy.
There are many types of love as seen within the novel. We see the love of one man for a race who were shunned and discriminated against in the first half of the twentieth century. The Negroes faced hatred and prejudice, those who treated them equally and as friends also faced this hatred.
We witness a beautiful friendship within the novel where skin colour does not matter, it is a heart connection.
There is the theme of separation of parents and children – some is enforced through death, others through choice. Some of these choices are selfish, others are sacrificial.
The Giver Of The Gift
Timepiece by Richard Paul Evans is a beautiful Christian historical tale and the second book in the Christmas Box trilogy.
This story provides the background to a character we met in book one. We witness the events that shaped a character – the loves and losses.
Life presents us with choices. We always have the choice to choose correctly. Bitterness will corrupt and drag us down to the mire. We need to exchange hearts of stone for hearts of flesh.
Within the story we see pure hearts in those who are viewed as the least in society. Their hearts are inversely proportional to their social standing.
Hope In Jesus Alone
The Gold Digger by Liz Tolsma is a mesmerising and horrific Christian historical novel. It is part of the True Colors series.
The novel is set in 1907-1908 and based on actual events. This makes it all the more horrific. An air of mystery still surrounds the case today.
There is the issue of trust. We do not always know whom we can trust or who is telling the truth. We need to press into God, lean on Him and pray for discernment and clarity within our situations.
The Bible tells us to take care of widows and orphans. We witness this within the novel.
The First Gift
The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans is a beautiful Christian Christmas novella that will warm your heart. It is the first book in the Christmas Box Trilogy.
Sometimes you start a book and you just know you are going to sink into it and enjoy it. This is one such book. It is a hug and love in a book.
The novella explores love and family. Warmth just oozes from the pages. We witness the power of love to remain even when all else is gone. We see the great love that God had for us as He sent Jesus to live and to die for us.
