In this new offering from "the king of Christmas fiction" ( The New York Times) , #1 bestselling author Richard Paul Evans shares a story of heart, loyalty, and hope as he explores the deeper meaning of the holiday season and asks what it truly means to love and forgive.

The year is 1975. Elle Sheen--a single mother who is supporting herself and her six-year-old, African-American son, Dylan, as a waitress at the Noel Street Diner--isn't sure what to make of William Smith when his appearance creates a stir in the small town of Mistletoe, Utah. As their lives unexpectedly entwine, Elle learns that William, a recently returned Vietnam POW, is not only fighting demons from his past, but may also have the answer to her own secret pain--a revelation that culminates in a remarkable act of love and forgiveness.

As with all Richard Paul Evans Christmas books, 'Noel Street' is a perfect, gentle read for a busy season.

Some of the details of the main characters that should have been explored more were glossed over a bit, but 'Noel Street' is an interesting an insight to the turbulence of war and race in the 70's.

The one thing RPE does so well is weave grace through his novels without being 'preachy'. The grace of understanding, of forgiveness, of simple kindness, and of course, of love of every kind.

I think the people and the town of Mistletoe Utah could easily become a series.

Heart-warming and inspirational story about the power of love and forgiveness.
Since it's such a tiny book, it is perfect for reading when you have a few quiet moments during the busy Christmas season.
