The Ornament Box tells a story of Michael who visits his mother on Christmas Even in orer to help her put up all Christmas decorations. And as they decorate a Christmas tree, they reminisce the stories connected to each ornament from the ornament box.
When I got this book for free on Amazon, I didn't know what to expect apart from a holiday themed read, but I was positively surprised. The main story, as well as the flashbacks to the little stories of each ornament were beautifully written, heart-warming and full of holiday spirit. I loved it that slowly, we got to know the whole family story, even of those characters not present in the main plot line. It has a few touching and sad moments, but it carries an important message, that family and our loved ones are the most important thing. Overall, it left me with a very warm feeling and I would definitely re-read it in the upcoming years.
I hate spoilers, so I don't want to go there. It's a story that goes into a family's past and present many times, woven artfully and seamlessly. Never are you in doubt as to the time frame and who it's talking about. It is not slow moving, yet spans five generations, but mostly three generational story. There is much heart and soul and a nostalgic remembrance of America's past and Christmas time nostalgia too. Do expect to have some tissues at hand. Also I am thankful to have somethings wrote that is a learning experience and may otherwise never have knowledge of. I'm both a travel and history buff, so I definitely loved that, plus it added much to the story. I would not be surprised to see this on the silver screen or on TV in the future.
