A Winter Dream

Joseph Jacobson loves everything about his life. He has amazing parents, 12 brothers and sisters, and a great job at the family advertising company. He's also obviously the favorite child of his very successful father. Little does he know that that's all about to change! One day, his brothers call him into a meeting, they've planned this meeting for when their parents are out of town. They tell Joseph that his little brother, Benjamin, has been embezzling from the company and that unless Joseph gives into their demands they will prosecute Benjamin and he will be going to jail. The demands: Joseph will leave the very next day for Chicago, he will not contact their parents, and he will leave the jacket that his father had given him. Joseph doesn't want to go, but he doesn't want Benjamin to go to jail either. So he packs his bags and is on the flight that his brothers graciously booked for him. They also got him a job and an apartment in Chicago, but Joseph knows no one in the city. He also doesn't know the joy or the adversity that's waiting for him on his journey. 

This book was a really neat retelling of the Old Testament story of Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors. I have never tried to think of that story in modern terms, but as I read this book I realized that it can fit into our modern life. I loved Joseph's character, and it seemed as though the awful things that happened to him really were happening. I really liked the ending too! This is a book that's well worth reading. I'd have to say that this is my favorite of Richard Paul Evans' books.
