About The Book
Fresh out of college and about to start her dream job as a photographer in New York, Aubrey is sure her life is picture perfect. From the moment she sets foot in the city, though, everything starts to crumble around her. With family problems back home, a complicated relationship, and an unforgiving city all around her, this Christmas, all Aubrey really wants is to find the real meaning of the holiday.
As a long time fan of both Christmas, and Jason F. Wright, I get excited when I see he has a new book releasing. So, when I saw Picturing Christmas making it’s rounds on the blogosphere, I felt like a kid in a candy story. I couldn’t wait to get my grabby hands on it. When I got the chance to, I devoured it. In one sitting. Literally. It was 183 pages of Jason Wright awesomeness.
With Jason’s books, he writes real life. He takes real situations-divorce, false illusions,hope- things that we deal with on a daily basis, and incorporates them into his character’s and his plots. He shows us through beautifully chiseled characters that relying on God is ok. It is ok to live a Christian life, no matter what. Aubrey has an illusion that most of us have: perfection. Through the talented hands of Mr. Wright, Aubrey’s story comes to life and plays out like something on the big screen. I fell in love with Aubrey’s character on her search for the meaning of Christmas. I found myself cheering her on, sharing her smiles and her heartaches. I loved that!
This is definitely worthy of beyond 5 stars. Mr. Wright is a fantabulous author and one who will steal you away and put you right in the heart of his stories. Two thumbs up to an author who has a forever space on my bookshelves. Hats off to an author who never fails to bring to life, beautiful characters and breathtaking plot lines! Grab your copy now!
