The Letter, the final episode of Richard Paul Evans's Christmas Box trilogy (The Christmas Box, Timepiece), begins in the winter of 1933. A bent and bereft hag is spotted crouching over the snowy grave of Andrea Parkin, David Parkin's three-year-old daughter who died twenty years prior. When the night watchman approaches the figure and tells her the cemetery is closed, she mysteriously disappears, leaving behind one red rose and a letter. When the child's mother comes to pay respect the following day, she finds the letter and its shocking news. Could David's mother be alive? The search for the answer sends David on a cross-country journey and into the arms of another woman. But the knowledge he gains gives him the strength to make the ultimate sacrifice for his loved ones. The dialogue is at times overly portentous, such as: "'David, what your mother is, or was, has nothing to do with who you are.' David shook his head. 'It has everything to do with who I am. Especially now. My mother's leaving is the reason I cannot forgive myself for losing my daughter.'" And one tires of Evans's three favorite words--"ardent," "gasp," and "cacophony." But fans of his sentimental journeys will want to keep their hankies handy.
From Library Journal
The final chapter in the lives of David and Mary Anne Parkins, introduced in Evans's phenomenal best seller, The Christmas Box, delivers the same heartwarming message of faith and love found in that book. Over the 19 years following the death of their young daughter, a silent rift of grief has grown between the parents. Unable to bear the alienation and sadness, Mary Anne leaves David, whom she still loves, in the belief that he will be happier without her. The remainder of the story centers on David's search for himself and for the mother who abandoned him as a child. Engaging and inspirational, this story is perhaps too edifying for those with more corrupted tastes. Nevertheless, it is sure to have the same popular success as Evans's earlier novels, recommending it for all fiction collections.
