Richard Paul Evans continues to delight readers with his latest inspiration called "Lost December". This book beginning with the original parable of "The Prodigal Son" takes the reader on an adventure in a modern retelling of the story. On this journey we meet Luke Crisp. Young, intelligent and next in line to take over the Crisp Corporation from his father. Carl Crisp is a loving father who raised Luke after his wife passed away. Teaching him to have a strong work ethic and showing him how to treat people with respect and dignity. When Luke goes to Wharton to get his MBA to prepare him for what his father hopes is his future with the company, he meets 5 people who challenge his thinking and his heart. When there is an unfortunate accident involving one of them, the rest decide to go on an extended vacation to Europe in an effort to enjoy the spoils of life while they can Luke knowing he has a trust fund at his disposal decides to join them and his Father is saddened to see his son go instead of taking over the business. There is a part of Luke that knows he has hurt his Father, but the lure of excitement entices him more. What follows is a series of greedy, self- serving events that turn into a life- altering spin steering Luke's path out of control. With all of his friends gone, he is left to try to pick up the pieces. Thanks to a couple of angels that God puts in his way, Luke is able to climb out of his despair and ultimately finds his way home to Love and Forgiveness. This book like all of Richard Paul Evans books is filled with inspiration and many points to ponder. I really enjoyed this book. Richard Paul Evans does not disappoint. A truly enjoyable read!
