Finding Noel by Richard Paul Evans

Finding Noel by Richard Paul Evans (2006)
This book touched my heart and soul in so many ways. The characters were so believable and relatable. I couldn’t put it down, despite that fact that I was overcome with emotion at various times throughout the book. It was one of those books that kept me thinking about the characters long after I finished it. The book is narrated by a young man. Each chapter opens with a brief entry from his diary. A few of my favorite entries are:
  • “My mother used to tell me that angels walk the earth disguised as people. Tonight I’m a believer.”
  • “Sometimes you can’t go home again.”
  • “I have learned firsthand that one well-placed truth can counter a lifetime of ignorance.”
  • “Usually life’s greatest gifts come wrapped in adversity.”
Although this is considered a Christmas book, it certainly can be read at any time of the year.
