A special anniversary edition of the unforgettable Christmas classic that has touched the hearts of millions of readers: “the most popular holiday tale since Tiny Tim” (Newsweek).

The Christmas Box, the touching story of a widow and the young family who moves in with her, was written in 1992 by Richard Paul Evans, then an unknown writer, who wrote the novella for his two young daughters, Jenna and Allyson. He completed it in less than six weeks and made twenty copies to give to friends and family as Christmas gifts. In the following weeks those twenty copies were passed from family member to family member, and from friend to friend. That heartwarming book—The Christmas Box—went on to become an international bestselling phenomenon, bringing hope and healing to everyone who reads it. Now, with more than 8 million copies in print in twenty-four languages, The Christmas Box 20th Anniversary Edition will introduce this holiday classic to a new generation of readers searching to connect with the meaning of the season.

    " I really enjoyed reading this series all together. It was such a good one to read during the Christmas season, but would be nice any time of the year. Be prepared to shed a tear or two, especially if you're a mom. "

    " This book is pretty depressing. It has a good message that we can change our lives no matter how terrible our choices may be. I don't want to cry for Christmas or the rest of the year so I would not suggest this story. "

    " This is a mildly entertaining book for the holidays. Not much substance and a bit melodramatic, but kind of nice to get into the Christmas spirit. "
