7 boxes of roughly 50 books have gone out to 7 local SWAP20 schools this week. I have been able to increase the number of books going to each school using the growing Little Library collection and ABC Bookstore books. The boxes are now full of fantastic books! All made possible by the recent donations and continued support from mericanbookcenter and ittleenglishlibrary. Little English Town Library Utrechtse Heuvelrug.

I just finished reading this book, and it gave me a feeling of hope that I haven't felt a long time.
It's written by Don Reid, who is a member of the Statler Brothers singing group. It's labeled as "religious" but I never felt like it was preaching to me, but rather encouraging me instead.. not to be a Christian, but to be a compassionate human being. I try very hard to do that.
This book shows the inter-connectedness we have with other people; our families, our friends, our neighbors, even with people we've never met. Our lives are interwoven with one another and we are each more than just a name on a page.
It takes place in a time when people lived their faith, no matter what that faith was, and didn't demand that everyone agree with them and that religion was "my way or the highway". Their faith was strong and personal and didn't need to try to make others agree with them.
It's almost 60 years since this story takes place, and I find it sad that people are becoming more selfish, narrow minded and intolerant of differences instead of more enlightened.
This book showed that people can make mistakes and learn from them and thrive. It seems like these days, it's just the opposite. To make a mistake is wrong and to admit to making a mistake is a sign of failure. When in reality, mistakes are the best lesson we can ever have.
I loved how the book included multiple generations and time frames to show much each event affects the next. That the past matters. That memories matter.
I hope you will treat yourself to reading this book during the holidays.
"Christmas, 1958
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."

O LITTLE TOWN is set in Mt. Jefferson, Virginia in the 1950's. It was your typical small town where everyone "knows your name" as the song goes and their lives are intertwined.

The story opens at Christmas time in the year 1958. The local pastor's daughter, Millie Franklin, was just caught shoplifting in Macalbee's department store. Milton Sandridge, the manager, doesn't want to raise too much of a scene and tries to keep the news from getting out. But he still has to call Buddy Briggs, the Chief of Police. Sadly, Buddy is having his own problems. When Buddy brings Millie home, Rev. Paul Franklin and his wife Dove are both disappointed in their daughter's behavior. She seems to have no remorse for what she has done. Then Dove decides to march up to the store and defend her daughter, which is exactly what Milton had wanted to avoid. Dove has been wanting to move from Mt. Jefferson for a long time. There is one temptation that she wants to flee.

Seventy year old Walter Selman is in Lenity General hospital with complications from the flu. At least that is what everyone thought. His daughters Doris and Colleen are waiting for him to wake up so they can visit him. Doris Sterrett is married to a Dr. Campbell Sterrett, who works in Lenity General. Colleen Sandridge is married to Milton, the manager of Macalbee's. Something is bothering Colleen that she cannot figure out. Things just don't seem right between her husband Milton and herself.

They all gather on Christmas eve for service at Pastor Franklin's church. He delivers a message on forgiveness. Everyone's lives are interwoven together. Will the message of forgiveness shine through the people of Mt. Jefferson?

Sometimes it is nice to read a story of forgiveness and hope. Even if the story is centered during Christmas time and you read it when it is not Christmas. Forgiveness and hope is welcome at any time of year, right? A nice feel good story worthy of 5+ stars.

It's not groundbreaking or surprising, but it's sweet and warm and in the end it leaves you feeling good. I'm ok with that - the writing style flows well and the characters are likeable so it's an enjoyable read. It's a nice change of pace from forced conflict and immorality left unchecked that many current novels employ.

O Little Town is set in 1958. It shares the tale of its prominent citizens and the birth of their familial ties. This is all done over a period of a few short days and a number of flashbacks. Even with the compressed timeline, we come to know the characters like they are old friends, and to care for them too. There's a message here, but it's not too preachy and is very appropriate.
