Found this inspiring and thought provoking as all his books are. Really enjoying catching up with all his stories - so filled with lessons to learn about life and how to live it. Have loved all of them.

Love, love, love Evans' books, especially the holiday themed books he writes. This one was no different, actually one of the best I've read! There's always a lesson learned in his books and they inspire hope, faith, and goodwill. If you want a feel-good read for the holidays, you can't go wrong with Richard Paul Evans!

I love stories of redemption and self awareness and growth.

Evans does it again with yet another masterful plot full of delightful twists and turns. There are spots with exposition but they do not harm the story. It still manages to plow forward regardless. Some parts are somewhat unbelieveable but even so, the story still manages to entertain and instill a sense of humbleness in spit of it all. A very enjoyable read.

I really enjoyed this one. The story takes the story of the prodigal son and gives it a modern twist. I found it to be a little too simplistic and a little too straightforward, but I guess if somebody is basing a fictional story on a biblical tale, it usually is a little more straightforward than if one is developing one's own storyline, but for some reason I never found East of Eden to be that straightforward, even though it is also based on the biblical story of Cain and Able. But I digress.

One thing that I thought that could have been improved upon was that there could have been a little more conflict between Luke and Rachael and more time spent on it; felt that it was rather rushed and it felt as though they resolved whatever issues they had rather quickly and probably a little too quickly for my liking. I realize that its supposed to be a book that is meant to be read fairly quickly and therefore doesn't go into much depth, but I felt that issues that they had was dealt with fairly quickly, even though it felt like it was a huge betrayal for Rachael to discover; just felt that he could have added a few more pages and dealt with the conflict in regards to the text message a little more and have them discuss it a little more than they did at the end, not that I didn't understand where the author was coming from.
