Item description for What A Christmas! by B. R. Roberts...
There's a war going on, and Clementine Rose Miles has her eyes open. She's just ten, but nobody can size up the situation better than this future investigative reporter with her knack for vocabulary and fondness for coffee. Is the new hired hand a Nazi spy? Can the shootout with her twin cousins ground them for life? How long does the smell of strawberry Jell-O last on a wool skirt? Do mailboxes really talk? Will Christmas still come to the Miles family when there's a tragedy? Can anything else possibly go wrong? You bet Whether it's helping Grandma churn butter, understanding her teen-impaired sister, approaching the unapproachable Mrs. McPugh, or praying for her uncle's unredeemed soul, Clementine stays on the case until it's solved. She tells a very grownup story with a child's humor and candor. In spite of one disaster after another befalling the Miles family, tears, love and laughter anchor them to their faith. And when everything comes to a crashing climax at the Christmas pageant, the whole town is saying, "What a Christmas " B. R. Roberts is a grandmother of six who has been writing for her grandchildren since 1981. She recently compiled all her stories, poems and letters into a volume for them and this has fed her passion to write "What A Christmas " It's a story which has been patiently waiting in her mind and wanting to be told for the past ten years. B. R. Roberts lives in Lynchburg, Virginia with her husband and two cats, and conveniently near her children and grandchildren.

This is a heartwarming, nostalgic story that beautifully captures the rhythm of life and death, laughter and tears, yearning and fulfillment. Endearing and believable characters will leave you inspired and longing for more. Loved it!
Great Book!!! Aug 21, 2008
I really enjoyed this book, and it's not just for Christmas, either! I feel all soft inside after reading about this family and these characters. I was transported to a simpler time when faith, love and family ruled. I remembered how I was once really excited about the simple things in life before I got all jaded... Great for adolescents to read as well. There is no profanity or evil that detracts from the story. Our herione, Clemmie, has the most interesting addictions....
