The Christmas Lamp by Lori Copeland

It just isn't Christmas without a novella by one of my favorite authors. Lori Copeland has been a favorite of mine for a long time, and she's back with a delightful tale about what is most important at Christmastime.

"The Christmas Lamp" tells the story of a tiny town called Nativity, a small town that is dying. If someone doesn't help them with their financial issues, Nativity could be no more.

That someone is town matriarch's nephew Jake Brisco...aka Scrooge, Public Enemy #1, and 'that man'. He sets out to help the town cut corners and save money, but gets accused of trying to steal Christmas.

Like saying that the town Christmas tree needs to go...especially since it gets knocked down at least four times each Christmas season. Of course, that could be because it's in the middle of the street!

Does that give you an idea of what Nativity might be like? Enter Roni Elliot, City Administration Manager. She clashes heads with Jake on the finances of the town...but how will that affect the management of her heart?

As for the lamp...well, you'll have to read it to believe it! Overall, this is a fun read for the Christmas season. Perfect length to squeeze in between wrapping, baking and shopping, or decorating, cleaning and addressing (depends on which end of the holiday you're on, I suppose).

I'm giving "The Christmas Lamp" four out of five bookmarks, with a dvd of a well-loved Christmas movie as a charm. As for which movie, you'll have to read the book. Note, I personally don't get the movie, but I'm only me!

Thanks to my friends at Zondervan for my copy!

Happy Reading!
