"In this new holiday-themed novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Mistletoe Promise and The Walk, a man receives the best Christmas present he could ask for: the chance to re-write the past. Jason Chercher is not doing well in love or life. Just two weeks after his wife leaves him he receives a phone call that his estranged mother has passed away, days before Christmas--leaving her home and all her belongings to him. Frankly, he would like to see everything just burned. But curiosity about his past and anxiety about his future fuels him to make the drive from Salt Lake City to her home in Medford, Oregon. Maybe cleaning out her house will be slightly less depressing than spending the holidays, alone, watching re-runs of Christmas classics. While going through her things he comes upon her diary and the record of his childhood. He learns that his mother suffered from severe depression and during that difficult time he was taken care of by a young, unwed mother who was living with his family. The only clue he has to the woman's identity is her name: Noel, which is an eerily fitting discovery on Christmas Eve. As Jason reads the diary he begins to uncover the source of his pain in relationships and understand that what he believed to be the truth of his past was actually a lie. That's when he begins a journey to find Noel, wondering if she might hold the truth he needs to bring him peace and love"--Provided by publisher.

I read RPE's annual holiday novel every year. This is a simple, quick, feel-good story that can be read in few hours. The themes include overcoming painful childhoods, forgiveness, grace, and love. This could be read any time of year. It takes place in the winter but doesn't really focus on the holidays.

This was as good as the Mistletoe Series and unfortunately we have to wait a year for the next installment. Enjoy these books and they are always a one sitting read as you want to find out the ending of the story once you open the book and start reading. He draws you into the stories and the characters of his books and always leaves you wanting more.
