Richard Paul Evans, author of Noel Street

The year is 1975. Elle Sheen --- a single mother who is supporting herself and her six-year-old African-American son, Dylan, as a waitress at the Noel Street Diner --- isn’t sure what to make of William Smith when his appearance creates a stir in the small town of Mistletoe, Utah. As their lives unexpectedly entwine, Elle learns that William, a recently returned Vietnam POW, not only is fighting demons from his past, but may also have the answer to her own secret pain --- a revelation that culminates in a remarkable act of love and forgiveness.
