It’s that time of year when scores of Christmas novels and short books come on the market to warm our hearts. I have read quite a few in my day and they are generally enjoyable and often uplifting. I found The Christmas Bus at a favorite charity discount book sale. The name alone was intriguing…The Christmas Bus!
Set in Christmas Valley, Oregon, a town struggling to survive the loss of its primary industry reinvents itself to capitalize on its unique name (yes there is actually such a place). The main characters are an older couple where the husband is a minister in the town and his wife runs a bed-and-breakfast. The best laid plans seem to come apart and their Christmas is not typical.
