Christmas 1958: Elvis is on the radio, Ike is in the White House, the Lord is in his holy temple ... but there is no peace in Mt. Jefferson.
In a small town where everybody seems to know everybody, there are still a few secrets. Three families find they are connected in ways they never suspected: an angry teen, a dying man, a lonely wife, a daughter in trouble ... just ordinary people, muddling their way through ordinary challenges. Illness. Marriage. Bad decisions. Friendship. Faith. Forgiveness.
Spanning three generations, O Little Town is a tender tale of love and redemption.
O Little Town is a nostalgic Christmas story set in a small town in an innocent era. It was inspired by a mysterious event of which I won't tell. You'll have to get the book and read it. Suffice it to say, I thoroughly enjoyed O Little Town, Reid's first novel. The characters are the same folks living in your town, just around the corner and next door. You'll recognize them and the trials they're going through.
A perfect Christmas gift for the readers in your life, Novel Reviews and I give O Little Town a high recommendation.
