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.
