The Christmas Lamp by Lori Copeland - REVIEWED

When your town bears the name Nativity, the Christmas season takes on a deeper meaning and a strong sense of tradition. When a new highway bypasses the town, the economic impact is devastating. The new financial consultant hired to save the town begins by taking out one of Nativity’s most festive landmarks. Does his destructive entrance into town foreshadow the end of other annual traditions?

Jake Brisco’s assignment in Nativity, Missouri is one centered on change. As manager of the city administrator’s office, Roni Elliot’s job is one intended to facilitate the recommended changes. When these two meet, so does financial responsibility and holiday tradition. The Christmas Lamp tells the story of a town’s struggle to preserve its heritage while embracing the true spirit of the Season. Along the way, lives are changed and everyone learns a important lesson.

The Christmas Lamp is a quick, sentimental read and will make a great stocking stuffer for the reader’s on your list. It’s really a bit nostalgic too, so it will appeal to many.
