The Christmas Lamp

Zondervan (October 1, 2009)

My Thoughts:
As much as I enjoy getting into a thick book, sometimes I really enjoy a novella for the ease of the read. And in my opinion, Christmas time is the perfect time of year to read a novella. I can get into a story without a huge investment of time and still enjoy something very worthwhile. That's how I felt about The Christmas Lamp. It is an uplifting story filled with Christmas goodness. I really enjoyed getting to know the main characters and spending some time in the town of Nativity!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Lori Copeland has been writing for twenty-five years and has over three million copies of her books in print. She began her writing career in 1982, writing for the secular book market. In 1995, after many years of writing, Lori sensed that God was calling her to use her gift of writing to honor Him. It was at that time that she began writing for the Christian book market.

To date, she has more than 95 books published, including Now and Always, Simple Gifts, Unwrapping Christmas, and Monday Morning Faith, which was a finalist for the 2007 Christy Awards. Lori was inducted into the Springfield Writers Hall of Fame in 2000.

Lori lives in the beautiful Ozarks with her husband Lance. They have three sons, two daughter-in-laws, and five wonderful grandchildren. Lori and Lance are very involved in their church, and active in supporting mission work in Mali, West Africa.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Christmas trees, twinkling lights, skating in the park, and holiday displays are the hallmark elements for celebrating Jesus birth for the sentimental residents of Nativity, Missouri. Will fiscal responsibility replace Christmas their traditions when times are tough? Though their priorities and methods clash, Roni Elliot and Jake Brisco want the same thing, for the town to prosper. As the two get to know each other better, each begins to gain a new perspective on what the real wealth of Nativity and the season might be.

OOH! Another one I have an opinion on! Hehe.

I am not real into novellas, but you're right--Christmas and novellas are just a great combination. I really enjoyed this one as well. Very sweet story. Here's my review: http://bookloons.com/cgi-bin/Review.asp?bookid=11694

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
