Editorial Reviews

Review

"Readers will relate to these characters, be moved to tears and laughter by them, and most importantly, be inspired by them . . . a journey you should definitely take." (Kirkus Reviews)

“The parallels to the biblical Joseph are easily recognizable and fit organically with the flow of the contemporary story. Evans has done his homework to realistically portray the ad agency world. The dialogue flows well and the main characters feel honest and likable.” (Deseret News)

He is the winner of the American Mothers Book Award, two first place Storytelling World Awards for his children’s books, and the Romantic Times Best Women’s Novel of the Year Award.

More About the Author

Richard Paul Evans
When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author.

Officially, he was an advertising executive, an award-winning clay animator for the American and Japanese markets, candidate for state legislature and most importantly, husband and father. The Christmas Box was written as an expression of love for his (then) two daughters. Though he often told them how much he loved them, he wanted to express his love in a way that would be timeless. In 1993, Evans reproduced 20 copies of the final story and gave them to his closest relatives and friends as Christmas presents. In the month following, those 20 copies were passed around more than 160 times, and soon word spread so widely that bookstores began calling his home with orders for it.

His quiet story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. The Emmy award-winning CBS television movie based on The Christmas Box starred Maureen O'Hara and Richard Thomas. Two more of Evans's books were produced by Hallmark and starred such well-known actors as James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave, Naomi Watts, Mary McDonough and Academy award winner Ellen Burstyn. He has since written 10 consecutive New York Times bestsellers and is one of the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists. He has won three awards for his children's books including the 1998 American Mothers book award and two first place Storytelling World awards. Evans's latest book, The 5 Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth, is now available.

Of his success, Evans says: "The material achievements of The Christmas Box will never convey its true success, the lives it has changed, the families brought closer together, the mothers and fathers who suddenly understand the pricelessness of their children's fleeting childhood. I share the message of this book with you in hopes that in some way, you might be, as I was, enlightened."

During the Spring of 1997, Evans founded The Christmas Box House International, an organization devoted to building shelters and providing services for abused and neglected children. Such shelters are operational in Moab, Vernal, Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah and Lucre, Peru. To date, more than 16,000 children have been housed in Christmas Box House facilities.

As an acclaimed speaker, Evans has shared the podium with such notable personalities as President George W. Bush, President George and Barbara Bush, former British Prime Minister John Majors, Ron Howard, Elizabeth Dole, Deepak Chopra, Steve Allen, and Bob Hope. Evans has been featured on the Today show and Entertainment Tonight, as well as in Time, Newsweek, People, The New York Times, Washington Post, Good Housekeeping, USA Today, TV Guide, Reader's Digest, and Family Circle. Evans lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife, Keri, and their five children.

Customer Reviews

Richard Paul Evans is one of my favorite authors.
Deb Thornton
This drew unexpected emotions out in me for the characters that were rewarded with the plot development at the end of the story!
Amazon Customer
This modern version of the Bible story of Joseph and the coat of many colors correlates very closely to the Bible account.

I just finished reading Richard Paul Evan's latest holiday creation "A Winter Dream". Although my Hardback book is due to arrive this afternoon, I just couldn't wait and began reading it on my Kindle app. I finished it in 4 hours. It was impossible to put down.

This story is a retelling of the story of Joseph from the book of Genesis in the Bible. Mr. Evans did an amazing job of capturing all the detail and meaning of the original story by weaving it through modern day events.

Your heart will be moved from the first page to the last.

I heartily recommend this book and all of Richard Paul Evans books. You will not be disappointed!!!

I got a special surprise yesterday when my book was delivered a day early. I had it finished in about 5 hours. Like all of RPE's books, it was amazing. I love that it is a modern day telling of a bible story. He did a fantastic job on this book. Richard definitely has a way with words and I just love all of the "diary" quotes in all of his books. This book is uplifting and inspiring. Read it, it won't disappoint. :)

A Winter Dream: A Novel by Richard Paul Evans is a BRILLIANT work of art! Once I began reading today, I could not put the book down. Finishing the book minutes ago, I am currently overwhelmed with all kinds of emotions. To say it is well-written and easy to read is an understatement! The message in this novel is as pertinent to our society as it was in Bible days. I would label this novel a classic for all time. This may well be Richard's greatest novel - yes, even above The Christmas Box. This modern version of the Bible story of Joseph and the coat of many colors correlates very closely to the Bible account. Richard took risks in making the story so close to the actual account, but his risks paid off. It took nothing away from the Bible account. My best description is BRILLIANT! I recommend A Winter Dream to young people, churches, families, and schools! What a tool for teaching character! Thank you for another excellent book, Richard.

Great read! I could not put this book down as well as all Richard Paul Evan's books. It keeps you interested. I of course fell in love with the character. I'll keep her name to myself until you read it. The sad part is, I finished the book in less than a day. I'm out of reading material. Again.

This is the story of Joseph from the Bible retold in modern days. Helps understanding of the Bible story and also has a nice little romance wound in as well.

I began reading Richard Paul Evans' books recently. Each one is so impressive. A Winter Dream is another one of his books I just can't put down. I read it in one day which says a lot, given the busy life that all of us can relate to! I have never had a writer make such an impact on me as a reader.

Just finished reading A Winter Dream by Richard Paul Evans. He is one of those authors that once you read one of his books you look for his name on the shelf to find his next book. He is a very gifted author and this book is no exception. Wonderful family story; I think this book would be a great Christmas gift. Kudos to Mr. Evans for another excellent book!
