    This review was written for O Little Town - eBook.
    If you like soap operas then this book is for you- or at least that's what it seemed like to me- but that's not a compliment. To me it was hard to follow and somewhat disjointed - jumping around from one scene to another with seemingly no connection between. Maybe the problem is with the reader and not the book so don't just take my word for it.

    By Don Reid of the Statler Brothers

    I think this book reads, like Don sings. If you like the energy and the tone of his Music, you must read this word composition by this Musician and tell me if you agree.

    Each chapter whisks you to another scenario of intertwined lives, although we may not realize it at first-the setting small town Pre-Christmas 1958.

    It has so much drama, it would win all the Soap Awards for the Year, and if you like fast moving dramatic Soaps, this book is for you.

    It couldnt be a better Christmas Book, for almost everybody even if Don Reid and his support group had tried.

    Its a book about good people in the fire and how they are finding the Angels walking in the Fiery Furnance with them, and each other, even when they arent feeling or acting, so good.

    Don as my Music Teacher Mrs. Miller said, Keep singing!, and keep singing those song-stories we call books! Nice job.

    A great book by Don Reid, this was his first book and it comes back around every year around Christmas. It is set in 1958 right at Christmas time and tells a story about different characters. I was a young teen about that time and knew all about a lot of the things that is talked about in this book just not the people. The story takes place in Mt. Jefferson, Va and it switches back and forth between the characters and lets each one talk about their life. There was Walter, he was a sick man and he kept remembering back when he was a young lad and worked in the Crown theater, and about some live actors before the movies came. He was 16 at the time and he really fell for the actress Adrienne. He was the most remarkable character to me. Then there was the police chief, alone with his wife and their pregnant 16 year old daughter and how they handled the teen pregnancy back in the 1950's.

    The pastor had a wife that was more interested in another man than her own family, so the teen daughter decided she would steal from the mercantile. Two of the wives were sisters and the daughters of Walter, one was married to the doctor and the other was married to Mercantile manager.

    As I would think like any small town there were tongues wagging telling this and that, and no always the truth. I don't know this for a fact if that is the way of small towns as I have never lived in town always in the country.

    This book is really a good book and Don did a fine job. Almost as good as his singing you heard I said ALMOST, I loved to hear the Statler Brothers and loved way back when they first got their start. My children grew up listening to the old 33 1/3 lps and me singing alone as I worked in the house.

    This book was sent to me by Jeane at wynnwynn media free for me to post my honest review.

    The author took a story with wonderful possibilities and totally came short of a satisfying ending. I never really did see how the "flashbacks" tied in with the story. Certainly didn't fit it with a story of forgiveness.
