The Noel Diary (Hardcover) *
Author: Richard Paul Evans
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 rewrite 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 and learns that his estranged mother has passed away, days before Christmas—leaving her home and all her belongings to him. Curiosity about his past and anxiety about his future fuel him to make the drive from Salt Lake City to her home in Oregon. While going through her things he comes upon her diary. 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. Jason begins to 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.
