'A Winter Dream' by Richard Paul Evans


Joseph Jacobson’s life is going to change when his younger brother embezzles from the family company and his ten other brothers who are poisonously jealous of Joseph plot to get rid of him because he is his father’s favorite of the bunch. Joseph or JJ has a good life in Colorado where he is a copywriter and has a pretty girlfriend named Ashley who Joseph is looking at rings to marry this girl. But she may not be the right one for him since she does not want to be contractually tied down to anyone.

One night Joseph has this prophetic dream where he is walking through a dark, snow-blanketed forest, and he comes across a tree covered with brilliant and colorful lights---just like a Christmas tree with other trees surrounding this tree in a perfect circle. When an epic storm arose whiting out the forest with snow except for that one tree, which was illuminated, and when morning came, the 11 trees were bent toward the tree of light.

With his younger brother Ben’s indiscretion gambling debt, Joseph is banished from Colorado and his family to Chicago to a large advertising company where he meets the love of his life April, but she too has her demons to rectify in her life, which is preventing a relationship with Joseph. In Chicago, Joseph has a tyrant for a boss where a misunderstanding leaves him banished once more in an undesirable, invisible job in New York without any promise where Joseph learns his banishment from Colorado is his lesson when he chose to pay for someone else’s sin, but in Chicago the sin was his own.

A Winter Dream by Richard Paul Evans will leave you racing through the book to see what happens next. It is about the mistakes people make, it is inspiring, and about family forgiveness and how good can come from evil.
