The novel is written by Richard Paul Evans who is an American author and the publication date was on October 7, 2008. In 1993, he couldn’t find himself a agent to publish , he published the book himself as a paperback novella entitled The Christmas Box and also distributed it to book stores in his community.The book became a local bestseller, prompting Evans to publish the book nationally. The next year The Christmas Box hit #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, inciting an auction for the publishing rights among the world’s top publishing houses.

The novel is about she was my first kiss and my first love. The girl was a runaway who taught him more about life than anyone has before or since. And when she was gone my innocence left with her. As I begin to write, a part of me feels as if I am awakening something best left dead and buried, or at least buried. We can bury the past, but it never really dies. The experience of that winter has grown on my soul like ivy climbing the outside of a home, growing until it begins to tear and tug at the brick and mortar. I pray I can still get the story right. My memory, like my eyesight, has waned with age. Still, there are things that become clearer to me as I grow older.
