    I heard the bells on Christmas dayTheir old familiar carols play In music sweet the tones repeat, There s peace on earth, good will to menLyrics by Henry Wadsworth LongfellowThere are stories, Christmas stories that are stored away like boxes of garlands and frosted glass ornaments, to be brought out and cherished each year I ve come to believe that my story is a Christmas story For it has forever changed the way I see Christmas Just like our story, the original Christmas taI heard the bells on Christmas dayTheir old familiar carols play In music sweet the tones repeat, There s peace on earth, good will to menLyrics by Henry Wadsworth LongfellowThere are stories, Christmas stories that are stored away like boxes of garlands and frosted glass ornaments, to be brought out and cherished each year I ve come to believe that my story is a Christmas story For it has forever changed the way I see Christmas Just like our story, the original Christmas tales were stories of searching, not so much for the lost, as for the familiar Mary and Joseph sought in Bethlehem the home of their familial ancestry a place to start their own family the three kings from the East journeyed beneath that sentinel star to find the King of Kings and the shepherds sought a child in a place most familiar to them a manger And perhaps after all the songs and poems and stories of the season, Christmas is really nothan that humanity s search for the familiar Every year we bring out the same songs, partake of the same foods and traditions, and share the things that make us feel that there s someplace we belong And in the end all any of us are looking for is home When Mark and Macy first meet, they are two very broken people In finding each other, it feels a little like finding a place where they are free to be themselves, share their personal stories of the emotional wounds they ve suffered, and feel accepted and understood This story is the story of how they met, how they opened their hearts to the possibility of love in all its forms, the overall theme is that people, circumstances present themselves to us for a reason This is a love story, yes, but it s also a story of learning to forgive yourself, and others, for real or imagined hurts inflicted, and a story of learning how to believe that you, or anyone else, is worthy to be loved

    WARNING THERE IS SOME INFORMATION GIVING WAY WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS BOOK Richard Paul Evans came from a loving family He writes many of the books for them Evans emphasizes that this book is about how people come into your life for a reason He wrote Finding Noel in honor of his mother who died in Febuary 2006.In the mist of the snowy night, Mark Smart feels like his life should come to an end Just days before, his mother had died and he missed her funeral His scholarship at the University WARNING THERE IS SOME INFORMATION GIVING WAY WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS BOOK Richard Paul Evans came from a loving family He writes many of the books for them Evans emphasizes that this book is about how people come into your life for a reason He wrote Finding Noel in honor of his mother who died in Febuary 2006.In the mist of the snowy night, Mark Smart feels like his life should come to an end Just days before, his mother had died and he missed her funeral His scholarship at the University of Utah had been canceled and he had lost his dorm room He also lost his job Little did he know, his car stopping by a coffee shop and meeting Macy Wood would change his and other s lives forever.I d like to start with the poorer parts of this book This book is almost impossible to find anything wrong with, but I did find something to argue with That is that Finding Noel is very predictable Even though it is predictable, it still makes you curious to see how it is all going to work out In the beginning of the book, I knew that Mark and Macy would fall in love Sure enough, three weeks later , Mark asks Macy to marry him Also, I would like to mention Macy Macy is very nice and thoughtful You could never tell what she had been through if she never told you about her past I think her character is almost unrealistic Her mother died before she was seven, leaving her to an unreliable dad She was adopted at the age of seven to the Hummels Joyfulness and Kindness wasn t even possible in the Hummel house No one ever cared for Macy, at least of what she could remember The worst of all was that her non biological mother hit her Yet after living in such bad conditions, Macy turned out not so bad after all.In spite of these things criticisms, the positives qualities make upthan 90 percent of the book Mark and Macy are the main characters of the book The book moves around them, but without all the other characters it could not be a book Richard Evans tells of these characters in a fascinating way Even reading for fifteen minutes there is a connection between the reader and characters.Also, with these characters, it makes a exciting and moving book I could never put the book down because I did not want to go on with my life until I knew how Mark s life would turn out I was literally always on the edge of my seat In essence, I think Evans couldn t have written a better book He teaches us that love and understanding is what we all need to give to each other for Christmas in to each other lives Even though Macy s previous families did not work out, she found a loving mother named Jo I recommend this book to everyone this Christmas season It is not a waste of time, or a book for the trash Consider this book for a gift

    I grabbed this audio book off the library shelf, to satisfy my summertime need for a Christmasy story I was halfway through the book, and becomingannoyed by the minute The reader added nothing to the telling, his voice flat and without emotion I finally was bothered enough by his lackadaisical rendition to look at the cover to see who the reader was Oops read by the author Even he sounded bored by his own novel I m sure I m in the minority, but I failed to find much inspiration fr I grabbed this audio book off the library shelf, to satisfy my summertime need for a Christmasy story I was halfway through the book, and becomingannoyed by the minute The reader added nothing to the telling, his voice flat and without emotion I finally was bothered enough by his lackadaisical rendition to look at the cover to see who the reader was Oops read by the author Even he sounded bored by his own novel I m sure I m in the minority, but I failed to find much inspiration from this tale Maybe it would be better in print, but the audio version seems to be filled with short, choppy sentences and sappy dialogue It failed to give me a warm, fuzzy feeling I wasreminded of a boring lecture You know the kind, where you are supposed to be taking notes, but you find yourself doodling and staring at your watch, willing it to move faster Obviously, I am not a fan of the author, and if you are, you may see something here that I have missed I think this story would have been better as a short story the author lost me long before the story ended

    I have never read a Richard Paul Evans book that let me down, and Finding Noel is just another example of this author s superb story telling I would highly recommend not listening to the final disk of this audio book on the way into work when you need to be upbeat and in an early meeting without tears running down your face I learned the hard way, so I thought I would share this nugget of wisdom with you Mr Evans has a way of making his characters feel like family I wanted to drive around I have never read a Richard Paul Evans book that let me down, and Finding Noel is just another example of this author s superb story telling I would highly recommend not listening to the final disk of this audio book on the way into work when you need to be upbeat and in an early meeting without tears running down your face I learned the hard way, so I thought I would share this nugget of wisdom with you Mr Evans has a way of making his characters feel like family I wanted to drive around the block time and time again just so I could find out what was going to happen Unfortunately, the earlier referenced meeting could not be put off, and I had to stop the car and go to work It gave me time to reflect, though, and savor the fantastic story the Richard Paul Evans has brilliantly put together
