Overview

The Locket by Richard Paul Evans

After the death of his mother, Michael Keddington finds employment at the Arcadia nursing home where he befriends Esther, a reclusive but beautiful elderly woman who lives in mourning for her youth and lost love.
Michael faces his own challenges when he loses his greatest love, Faye. When Michael is falsely accused of abusing one of the Arcadia's residents, he learns important lessons about faith and forgiveness from Ester — and her gift to him of a locket, once symbolic of one person's missed opportuninites, becomes another's second chance.
Richard Paul Evans, author of the beloved #1 bestselling classic The Christmas Box, begins a wonderful new series with this stunning New York Times bestseller — a bittersweet reminder of life's most precious gifts....

After reading 'The Christmas Box', I couldn't wait to get another book from Richard Paul Evans. I picked up 'The Locket'. I already knew how my life can be affected by the elderly, I was a caretaker for an eldely man who recently passed away. I learned so much from him and spent everday with him for the past couple of years, (but knew him all my life since I was a little girl.)I still don't know how to live life w/out him but my time spent w/him was unforgettable. He touched my heart and life so much. In 'The Locket', I feel like Michael felt the same way I did, and I know he made Esthers remaining days-happy ones, like I did.

After already reading 'The Christmas Box', I read 'The Locket' and was once again touched by Evans' heartfelt storytelling. This book is filled with characters I became friends with, places I wanted to go and situations I could identify with. The story line keeps you reading until the surprising ending. This book wraps suspense, romance and friendship neatly around a good lesson in life.

This is a story about how love prevails against all odds and the importance of second chances. It was a enjoyable read and would recommend to anyone looking for a good love story.

This book is the first book that I've read that actually projected the reality of the circumstances that surround love. The story carried me from one page to another, at times wanting to stop because I was afraid I'd start crying and other times wanting to continue for fear that I might miss something. Not a lot of books capture my interest so quickly but this love story full of truths and revelations took me by the hand and lead me through an adventurous trek in Michael Kendington's shoes. I will never forget about how throughout the whole book it gave incredible examples of the whole Macbeth theme of 'fair is foul and foul is fair'. I believe that it may not be the author's intention but it has given me great insight on how literature is at it's finest.

I bought this book looking for something to do while we drove across country on vacation. I had never heard of this author. I was pleasantly surprised at the treasure I had found. It is about listening to others experiences and learning from their mistakes. No matter what our age we have something to give to other generations. I can't wait to get another one of Richard Paul Evans books.

I discovered Richard Paul Evans' books late this year, this is the fifth book by him that I read, and it is just as touching as the rest have been. Michael is such a well textured character. He's inspirational, highly developed, true and one to which the reader can relate in some way no matter what. The story is deeply moving and romantic, but it never leaves the side of reality nor goes off in a tangent that leaves you thinking sappy thoughts or rolling your eyes. For anyone who has ever known a great love, wished for one or witnessed it, this is a book you should not miss. If for no other reason, the tale should be read in order to lift the heart.

I have never been a reader but had to go to the library to make copies...saw this book, checked it out and was absolutely amazed! I read it in 2 days (for a non reader- i think that's fast). I laughed, cried and just really connected with the story! I can't wait to read 'The Christmas Box'.
