Learn inspiring life-lessons from the lives of Jacob and Rachel in their quest to search for Noel, in Richard Paul Evans’ The Noel Diary: A Novel (The Noel Collection). It is a story of Jacob Churcher, who hasn't been home for almost twenty years as his mentally-ill mother kicked him out of the house when he was sixteen.
Days before Christmas, a lawyer calls to inform him that his estranged mother has passed away, and left her house to him. He returns to the house not only to settle but to try and reconcile with the past, pain, and abuse he experienced as a child. As he planned to clean his mother's abandoned house, he discovered that the house carries more than painful memories. He excavates and uncovers two decades worth of clutter, including a diary left by someone named Noel, an unfamiliar woman who stayed with Jacob's family during her pregnancy.
And an unexpected visitor, Rachel, a woman looking for her mother who put her up for adoption thirty years before. United by their desire to understand their past and rewrite their futures, both of them begin to search for Noel. Along the way, they find answers more than they possibly imagined, grace and forgiveness. And also, a chance at love.
This holiday-themed novel is perfect to make your Christmas worth remembering.
