Since I am doing Buuklvr’s Bookin Holidays all this month and next, I thought I would REpost this since it is a christmas read….and an AMAZING one at that.

About the Book:
Rising newspaper reporter Hope Jensen uncovers the secret behind the “Christmas Jars”–glass jars filled with coins and bills anonymously given to people in need. But Hope discovers much more than she bargained for when some unexpected news sets off a chain reaction of kindness and brings about a Christmas Eve wish come true.

My Review:
Jason’s story, Christmas Jars, is so well written that you would feel it was a true story. Jason sets a powerful message within the pages of this book. It is a story that will make you laugh,cry, and wish you could be right there with the characters! It is definitely a “10 box of tissues” novella!

The story tells of hope, love, friendship, faith, and trusting in one another. It brings out the feeling and meaning of Christmas through this powerful message. One family’s blessings are another family’s hope in their time of need. It brings families together through one simple lesson: THE GIFT OF GIVING.

Praises to Jason Wright for making this a story that will make you want to start your own tradition of giving a Christmas Jar. I know it did that for my family! It is definitely the Christmas stories of past, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story and many more, here in the now with a new tradition sure to be contagious among all readers!
