Reviews - What do customers think about Christmas Bus?

angel in disguise  Jan 11, 2007
This is definitely a Hallmark movie to be made. The characters are so delightfully described that you immediately form an image of them in your mind. The slow conversion of the community is as magnetic as the coming together of the guests at the bed & breakfast. I am so glad I read this before Christmas because it opened up whole new feelings as well as observations of God working in my life and the lives of others. We all have poeple like these in our midst.
The Christmas Bus  Jan 4, 2007
Iloved the book and it has been read by at least 18 people and they all loved it also. Good for the Christmas Spirit and teaching children to share with others.It was simple and easy for youngsters to understand.
A Delightful Holiday Find  Jan 4, 2007
I was seeking some Christmas stories, and I love this. In fact I purchased 3 of her books and each one was as good as the other. Each year it is nice when I have some down time to read books that remind us what this season really represents. This story of B and B owners and the story of why they opened up their home over the holidays will be one I will remember for some time. The kindness of strangers is always a gracious gift. This author understands heart, she writes with one.
Delightful Holiday Fare  Nov 28, 2006
During the holidays this voracious reader likes to find special holiday reads to make the season brighter. I took a gamble on Ms. Carlson's book as I had not read her before, but the cover art caught my eye and I took a leap of faith. Imagine my happiness when the book turned out to be a wonderful story of a minister and his wife taking in strangers to their bed and breakfast when their children cannot come home for the holidays. An eclectic bunch convene upon Pastor Charles and Edith ready or not, making the story so funny, yet touching. I will now have this book as a yearly read along with Capote's "Christmas Memory" Karon's "Shepard's Abiding," Gulley's "Christmas in Harmony" and many others that I treasure and love.
I highly recommend this uplifting read.
Entertaining read  Nov 28, 2006
Edith Ryan (wife of local pastor Charles) is disappointed because none of her children will be returning home for Christmas this year. Determined to have a full and joyous home, she decides to keep The Shepherd's Inn (her bed and breakfast) open during the holidays. She believes that God will send people (especially children) that need just what she and Christmas Valley (where Christmas is a year-round experience) can provide.

What Edith gets is cranky church members and townspeople who think they know what is best for Christmas Valley. Then there's Myrtle, a bossy know-it-all; a young mother and daughter who are alone; an older man who wants to be left alone; a squabbling husband and wife; and a multi-colored bus that breaks down in front of The Shepherd's Inn--complete with a very pregnant woman. Amy and Colin, owners of the bus, are struggling to make it to San Diego before the baby is born. But without funds, it looks like they're stuck in Christmas Valley.

The old saying is: Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. Edith's house is full, but it's not going as she thought it would. Perhaps there's something bigger and better going on in the background. Time will tell.

The Christmas Bus is a lovely Christmas story of the wonderful way in which God works in our lives, if we step out of the way. It's a reminder that appearances are deceiving and one never knows if and when they are entertaining a soul in need, the angels or the Lord Himself.

Armchair Interviews says: The Christmas Bus entertains, while reminding us all of the true spirit of Christmas.
