The Christmas Lamp by Lori Copeland (Review)



Hardcover: 144 pages
Publisher: Zondervan (October 1, 2009)
ISBN-13: 978-0310272274

When the small town of Nativity, Missouri, loses its much-needed seasonal business, more than the economy suffers. Lifelong resident Roni Elliot clashes with the new outside consultant Jake Brisco, whose drastic budget-slashing threatens the traditions and spirit of Nativity. However, as forgotten joys rekindle and new traditions emerge, Christmas once again becomes a season of hope.

My Thoughts:
Overall it was an good read. I love Lori Copeland's books and have read most of her Christian fiction but this one was just okay. It was an enjoyable short book with interesting characters and bit predictable plot. It was so short it did not feel fully developed. I would have loved for it to be twice the length. It does put you in the Christmas spirit and remind us of what is important so the goal was achieved. :)

That is what I said. It was okay. Not nearly long enough. But it had great potential, so it was sadly short-circuited in my opinion because it was a novella.
