Just before Christmas, Evie finds herself with no job and no boyfriend. She meets Greg who invites her to do a charity job for Christmas and serve in the homeless shelter. There she meets Yves, a homeless guy whose birthday is around Christmas. Yves might be homeless, but he has the richest soul in the world. He takes Evie on a journey that will bring back her faith in people and in love.
I absolutely adored the characters. There is Evie who has yet to learn how to love herself and how to face her biggest fears. And of course, there’s Yves who takes her on a great spiritual journey, showing her the most magnificient places in London, in order to teach her a lesson.
Christmas Yves is a not only a beautiful festive novella but also a very deep and moving story with wonderful spiritual elements. It’s not just about Christmas and sharing. It’s about believing in yourself and others, and about all the important things in life. It’s an inspirational story that reminded me of ‘The Alchemist’. And I loved that book.
‘Christmas Yves’ is a mesmerizing tale everyone needs to read. You’ll learn lots of great lessons along the way, many lessons you might already know but somehow forget to live according to them. I absolutely loved this novella, it’s short yet straight to the point and I’m absoloutely recommending it to anyone.
My rating: 5/5
