The First Backwards Christmas by Brooke Williams – Review Sarah Oakes

The First Backwards ChristmasThe First Backwards Christmas by Brooke Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about reinvention. South Pole Alaska is slowly becoming a ghost town as residents leave. When the mayor resigns, local Jack Furst is volunteered into the role. Can he come up with a way to restore their town?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like the supportive Joyce living her dream or Jack wanting to help others. Extremely enjoyable as a prequel to learn how all the traditions came to be.
I loved the feel of a small town community working together to brainstorm ideas with the sense of a small town with little shops and friendly people.
I also loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the Christmas tree and decorations or the Santa costume full of vivid colours against the snow white landscape. Also the sense of the elements in the cold and the snow as if you could feel it And the unusual but refreshing take on Christmas. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
