Review: The Christmas List By: Richard Paul Evans

The Christmas ListThe Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is nothing quite as uplifting as a book by Richard Paul Evans.
James Kier is a man driven by money, he never cared about who he had to step on to get it, never cared about people, and over the years lost himself int the business world neglecting his own family. What more could this man want when he could buy anything he ever wanted? James has also never had to look at himself and his deeds, never had a moment of self reflection, that is until he reads his own obituary (do to mistaken identity) and finds himself looking hard.
He read the comments people made about him, he read his soon to be ex defending him, he saw the empty man he had become. No time like now to change. He has his secretary make a list of the people that he has wronged. Every person brings to light something inside of him - from a gentle former friend wanting nothing from him to a man he stole an idea from becoming a "predator" in the business world owing his view and wealth to him.
James' growth unfolds with each meeting, and he learns the true meaning of a life lived.
A wonderful told tale with with a great spiritual message that is bound to melt even the hardest of hearts.
