The author of the bestselling phenomenon The Christmas Box presents a new holiday novel about family, fate, and forgiveness.

Joseph Jacobson is the twelfth of thirteen siblings, all of whom are employed by their father’s successful Colorado advertising company. But underneath the success runs a poisonous undercurrent of jealousy; Joseph is his father’s favorite and the focus of his brothers’ envy and hatred. When the father seems ready to anoint Joseph as his heir, the brothers make their move, forcing Joseph from the company and his Denver home, severing his ties to his parents and ending his relationship with his soon-to-be fianceé. Left all alone, Joseph must start a new life.

Joseph joins a Chicago advertising agency where his creativity helps him swiftly climb the corporate ladder. He also finds hope for a lasting love with April, a kind woman with a secret. However, all secrets have consequences, and when Joseph learns the truth about April’s past, his world is again turned upside down. Finally, Joseph must confront his own difficult past in order to make his dreams for the future come true.

A Winter Dream is an ingenious modern retelling of the Old Testament story of Joseph and the coat of many colors by the master of the holiday novel.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Judy Collins | 2/18/2014

    " Richard Evans is a great storyteller and this was a modern version of Joseph and coat along with the brothers from the Bible returning home. (Liked the jealous step brother part as it is very realistic). The story was about overcoming obstacles and everything is not as it appears. We learn from our mistakes and the gift of forgiveness. Not crazy about the girlfriend who was running away from polygamist tie in and would have preferred a different take; however, all in all was a good read. "
