Nativity, Missouri, is in trouble.

Outside consultant Jake Brisco threatens everything the community loves about Christmas with his budget-slashing solutions.

Overview

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 town’s 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 can’t 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.

A good short book about the tradition associated with some of our holidays. The male/female characters were attracted to each other without any smut or sexual overtones. Nicely written and a good read.

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 town's 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 can't 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. My Review - This book was very predictable and just okay. I knew from the get go who was going to fall in love with who. And how the town was going to act toward Jake Brisco. Overall this book was just okay. I gave it two stars.
