The Christmas Box – Richard Paul Evans

This is one of those books that can be a timeless Christmas classic, published in 1993 The Christmas Box was a satisfying read during this Christmas season. Eye opening, slightly, but definitely emotional. It conveys a cheerful message that is something to be passed on in generations, despite this being a work of fiction. It is short and sweet, can be read in one sitting, which at this age of everyone moving quickly is more than ideal.

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.


“The human life cycle no less than evolves around the box; from the open topped box called a bassinet, to the pine box we call a coffin…” (34)
“The smells of Christmas are the smells of childhood.” (79)
