The Christmas Promise by Richard Paul Evans

 

THE CHRISTMAS PROMISE
By Richard Paul Evans

On the night of her high school graduation, Richelle Bach’s father gives her and her identical twin sister, Michelle, matching opal necklaces. “These opals look identical,” he tells them, “but the fire inside each is completely unique—just like the two of you.” Years pass, until they both come home for Christmas. What happens then forever damages their relationship and Richelle vows never to see or speak to her sister again. In their father’s last days, he asks Richelle to forgive Michelle, a deathbed promise she never fulfills as her twin is killed in an accident. Now, painfully alone and broken, caring for the sickest of children in a hospital PICU, Richelle has one last dream: to be an author.

Library: DoD Civilian Retiree Card

Are you a retired DoD civilian?  
For information on how to receive your DoD Civilian Retiree Card, visit Uniformed Serviced ID Card.

What is the purpose of the card?
Since many retired DoD civilians have no way of identifying their association with the Department of Defense, this card provides them with a trusted credential to establish their identity and affiliation. Some, but not all, military installations allow retired civilians access to MWR facilities with proper identification.
