Review: "Quickly becoming known for his easy sentimentality and maudlin tone, Evans, best-selling author of The Christmas Box and Timepiece, usually deals with the death of children or parents, old or sick people, or the down-and-out. His latest novel tells the story of Michael, a young man from a poor family who is dating a beautiful society girl, Faye, and working the graveyard shift at the local old folk's home. Things get pretty bleak for Michael when his mother dies and he is left alone in the world. He is arrested for a crime he didn't commit and loses his college scholarship; worse yet, Faye's father contrives to break up the couple. Michael learns a valuable lesson about unfulfilled dreams, lifelong regret, and lost love from a dying patient at the nursing home, which serves as the impetus for him to get on the ball. Evans' fans are numerous, and although there are many who may scoff at his work as overwritten and simplistic, Evans is laughing all the way to the bank. Kathleen Hughes": 5.25 x 7.25 in.: 361 pages
