The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans

“Richard Paul Evans originally wrote The Christmas Box as an expression of love for his two daughters, never intending for it to be published.  Many Christmas seasons later, this touching tale relates the meaning of Christmas in a profound but simple way.  Rick, Keri, and their 4-year-old daughter, Jenna, are hired as caretakers and are welcomed into the home of Mary, an ailing widow, just in time for the holidays.  Before long, it becomes apparent that Mary cherishes the companionship of this young family.  As Christmas draws near, Mary becomes anxious about Richard’s obsession with success and his failure to make time for his family.  These tender relationships, fraught with real-life struggles, are the backdrop for unraveling a mysterious secret that gently propels the reader through this short story.  This tiny treasure will cause you to rejoice in the blessings of the season while stirring up a childlike vigor as old profundity is revealed anew.”

The Violets of March by Sarah Jio

In her twenties, Emily Wilson was on top of the world: She had a bestselling novel, a husband plucked from the pages of GQ, and a one-way ticket to happily ever after. Ten years later, the tide has turned on Emily’s good fortune.  So when her great-aunt Bee invites her to spend the month of March on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, Emily accepts, longing to be healed by the sea.  Researching her next book, Emily discovers a red velvet diary, dated 1943, whose contents reveal startling connections to her own life.  A mesmerizing debut with an idyllic setting and intriguing dual story line.
