Overview

The Sunflower by Richard Paul Evans

“It has been said, ‘Seek not your destiny for it is seeking you.’” So begins this new and powerful novel from Richard Paul Evans, #1 bestselling author of The Christmas Box, The Walk series, and more.

In the wake of personal tragedy, two people meet on a humanitarian mission in Peru. Christine is a shy, unadventurous woman whose fiancé broke off the engagement only a week before the wedding, and Paul is a former emergency room doctor whose glamorous lifestyle, stellar reputation, and beautiful fiancée are cruelly snatched from him one fateful, snowy Christmas Eve. Deep in the Amazon jungle, against a backdrop of poverty and heartbreak, they must confront their deepest fears and, together, learn to trust and love again.

I was so excited when I heard The Sunflower was in the book stores. I went immediately and bought it and immediately read it. Then I was sorry it was over. I wanted the story to continue. So I purchased A Perfect Day. Also a great book, and so timely at Holiday time. Richard, you touch so many lives. Your words are so endearing and go deep into our hearts and minds. I guess I will have to start over with The Christmas Box and re-read all your books as I wait for the next new one. This is going to be a great literary year!! And I love your childrens books as well. I have bought The Light of Christmas for my 5 nieces for Christmas.

This book was amazing... What a feel good story! I couldn't put it down, I read it in one night (of course I was up until 2 am) but it was so worth it!

Richard Paul Evans¿ new book The Sunflower is one of my top favorites. I personally have traveled to Peru and the description and imagery are right on. The story takes place in the Amazon jungle which makes the story incredibly romantic. It also helps that one of the main characters, Paul Cook, is a rugged humanitarian and exceptionally good looking. You know, the kind of man all of us women would like to meet in the jungle. I enjoyed the love story but it is not the reason why I liked the book. The Sunflower has a deeper side to it, like all of Evans¿ books. It is that of thousands of hopeless street children that don¿t know anything better than sleeping on a cold door step or eating scraps at every meal. This book inspired me to reach out and help. I recommend it to all!!!

Since I've recently returned from a village where our group helped set up a medical clinic, I enjoyed the humanitarian setting as compassion meets romance in the lush, Amazon jungle. In 'The Sunflower,' Evans again weaves some wonderfully insightful journal entries from our hero into the story, so his dedication to the children is as vivid as it is to getting the girl.

I was fortunate enough to read ¿The Sunflower¿ by Richard Paul Evans and let me tell you that you will not want to miss out on reading Evans new book! I actually felt as though I was on the Peru expedition with Christine and Paul. Evans took me on a journey of love, love that captures your soul. Just be sure to have a box of tissues nearby as you read this novel! This is a book that you will want to pass on to all your friends.
