Review: Christmas Jars By: Jason F Wright

Christmas JarsChristmas Jars by Jason F. Wright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OK, I must admit I am a sucker for Holiday books, for the Hallmark commercials and movies, for the happy ending.
The Christmas Jar is one of those books that combine all the above and make a great afternoon read. It is a story of giving, forgiving, the human spirit, and the things that link us all together. It is one of those books that make you take a look around, be grateful, be humble, and set out to do something good.
Hope Jensen was left in a booth at the holidays with a letter, the woman who found her took her as her own and raised her. Hope became a reporter, worked her dues, and when her mother passes she experienced a burgulary and recieved a Christmas Jar filled with money mysteriously left in the doorway.
Uncovering the who, what, when, where, why and how is her job but the road that it leads her on teaches a life lesson that will change her and those around her.
A heartfelt, pay it forward mentality - this is not a book that you can simply put down, but one that if you let it will in fact change your life and people around it.
