Holiday Reading Challenge Book 1(Nice): The Christmas Lamp by Lori Copeland

Posted November 16, 2010 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


Nativity, Missouri, is in trouble.

When the small town is bypassed by the newly constructed highway, it loses its much-needed holiday traffic threatening not only the towns financial survival, but its very heart and soul.

Outside consultant Jake Brisco threatens everything the community loves about Christmas with his budget-slashing solutions. Nothing is sacred not even the traditional town Christmas tree. Long-time resident Roni Elliot knows some sacrifices have to be made, but cant let go of the customs and traditions that have marked her holidays since childhood. The decorations and customary activities have always generated vitality and joy throughout the whole season in Nativity.

Though their priorities and methods clash, Roni and Jake want the same thing prosperity for the town. As the two get to know each other and become close, each begins to gain a new perspective on what the real wealth of Nativity and the season might be.

The Christmas Lamp takes an honest look into the issues and concerns we all face and sheds light on the real origins of Christmas spirit

What I Loved:  This was such a short, sweet, uplifting Christmas story about a town finding their Holiday Spirit in spite of some major obstacles. The town was full of people, each with their own personalities that really showed through.

What I Liked:  The quirky traditions of the town that all found a way to exist in spite of the odds.

Why this is a great little holiday read: This was free on Kindle so it didn’t cost a thing.  It is quick read and will make you smile.  It will put you in the holiday mood!
