When Luke Crisp graduates from business school, his father, CEO and co-founder of Fortune 500 Crisps Copy Centers, is ready to share some good news: he wants to turn the family business over to his son. But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust fund, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of reckless indulgence.
But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled, alone, and too ashamed to ask his father for help, Luke secretly takes a lowly job at one of his father's copy centers. There he falls in love with a struggling single mother and begins to understand the greatest source of joy.

So thankful for a public library that provides me with all kinds of wonderful retro reads like this one!
Heart-tugging, Kleenex-inducing modern twist on the Prodigal Son. Fabulous retelling, though I'll admit that Luke is hard to take in the first half of the book. What a wretchedly lost soul and some of his so-called 'friends' had me fuming! But, as in the biblical story, Luke finally reaches rock bottom and there's nowhere to go but up from there!
The second half of the book is a powerful testimony of so many gospel truths -- gratitude, redemption, the hope of second chances and the secret to true happiness. And all wrapped up with a Christmas bow! Richard Paul Evans delivers another heartwarming holiday story destined to be enjoyed year after year.
