  • About the Edition

    Like most things in Ellery, Tennessee, this year"s Drive Thru Nativity is a little unconventional. The Dollar General parking lot doubles as a Bethlehem stable, and widowed writer Ivy Long, who"s been roped into playing Mary, sure as heck isn"t a virgin. But then comes an unexpected development: a genuine, real-life baby left in the manger, with only a brief note. And somehow, in the kerfluffle that follows, Ivy finds her life is about to change. The holidays are a bittersweet time for Ivy filled with memories of her beloved late husband and reminders that life doesn"t always offer the happily-ever-afters her readers expect. So when Ivy ends up with custody of the baby, she can only chalk it up to a Christmas miracle. She doesn"t know if it will be forever, but with help from family, she"ll make little Zuzu"s first Christmas a good one. The nativity"s Joseph, aka Gabe Ledbetter, has a pediatrics background that"s coming in mighty handy. In turn, Ivy is helping Gabe find his place in the quirky community. If that place turns out to be somewhere near Ivy, well, maybe this particular Christmas story will turn out to be merry and bright after all.

    Oh My Stars. Written by Lorna Landvik Review by Wendy Zollo. The time is the Depression. Violet Mathers is eighteen years old, creatively accomplished yet a cacophony of ugliness: the product of an absent mother and a cruel father, the casualty of a factory accident that robs her of her talents and sets her on a suicide mission to the Golden Gate Bridge. Oh My Stars is Lorna Landvik's most ambitious novel yet, with a cast of characters whose travails and triumphs you'll long remember. It is a tale of love and hope, bigotry and betrayal, loss and discovery–as Violet, who's always considered herself a minor character in her own life story, emerges as a heroine you'll laugh with, cry with, and.

Oh My Stars A heart warming, hilarious story with a Southern twist Like most things in Ellery, Tennessee, this year’s Drive-Thur Nativity is a little unconventional. Lorna Landvik is a name that always catches this reader's attention. Whenever she has a new book out, it automatically is on the must-read list.

While OH MY STARS is quite different from PATTY JANE'S HOUSE OF CURL and her more recent ANGRY HOUSEWIVES EATING BON BONS, Landvik's latest does not disappoint./p>.

Violet begins each chapter in the present, then goes back in time when she is so happy, eating at diners, fixing picnic lunches, sleeping under the stars, meeting characters who are in entertainment, music plays a large part in this book, music could be another character/5.

Oh My Stars is not a bright and funny kind of story like Lorna Landvik has written in the past but it sure is worth the time it takes to read it. This story deals with some serious issues such as abuse and racism but it also has love and hope and shows that miracles can happen.

You can't help cheering on Violet as she makes her way through this book.5/5(5). “Oh My Stars” is the first of Landvik’s books taking steps from the page to the screen.
