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").
""Whatever the reason, I find that with each passing Christmas the story of the Christmas Box is told less and needed more. So I recorded it now for all future generations to accept or dismiss as seems them good. As for me, I believe. And it is, after all, my story."
"So begins "The Christmas Box," the touching story of a widow and the young family who moves in with her. Together they discover the magic of the Christmas holiday.
It 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.
