Item Description...
Every holiday season for ten years, Billy Romp, his wife, and their three young children have spent nearly a month living in a tiny camper and selling Christmas trees on Jane Street in New York City. They arrive from Vermont the day after Thanksgiving and leave just in time to make it home for Christmas morning-and for a few weeks they transform a corner of the Big Apple into a small village community. The French baker across the street keeps them supplied with fresh rolls and bread. The dry cleaner around the corner cleans their quilted vests and down jackets free of charge. A neighbor extends a power line from his basement, winding it through high tree limbs and into the camper, to keep their little heater humming. The local meter maid "forgets" to ticket the camper. And, in the ultimate statement of affection and trust, Jane Street neighbors deliver apartment keys to the Romps with open invitation to come by anytime for a hot shower, shave, and nap. For the Romps, the Christmas tree business is also a serious business. A good sales season can make the year for this frugal family. Under tremendous financial pressure this particular year, Billy is counting on his family to pitch in as they always do, when he faces an unexpected obstacle: His oldest child and best helper, Ellie, sets her sights on attending the extravagant Nutcracker ballet and testing her wings outside her close-knit family. How Billy reconciles Ellie's transformation from a tomboyish, female version of himself into a graceful, independent young lady is at first a struggle and later a revelation. Along the way, he must learn how to let his daughter dream her own dreams-even when they diverge from his own. In setting her free, Billy learns the ultimate lesson of Christmas. Christmas on Jane Street is about the transformative power of love-of parent and child, of merchant and customer, of stranger and neighbor. The ideal Christmas story, it is about the lasting and profound difference that one person can make to a family and one family can make to a community.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I was so disappointed  Sep 26, 2005
I was so looking forward to reading this book. Rather than describing in detail how they managed their family needs in an incredibly small space (and what about school for the kids?) it was a Hallmark version of a prepubescent daughter's first altercation with her dad. Yes, it's a quick read and could have been a fascinating story. Too bad it wasn't.
A must for December book clubs  Apr 13, 2004
When looking for a light book for my book club to read in Decemeber, this was recommended by three librarians and two book stores.One thought it was out of print, but hurrah--it's not. I ordered in through the used book section so all our members had little initial investment. A friend is now ordering it for her book club in Wisconsin.
i have met this family and visited them in greenwich village  Dec 13, 2003
i received this book a couple of years ago and was enchanted by it. i live in NJ so for the last 3 years have gone to "jane street" to see this wonderful family. the first year i brought my book with me and the entire family signed it and were absolutely lovely. the next two years i have welcomed them to nyc and brought them cookies, popcorn, etc. they are a joy to manhattan and all mankind. a marvelous family who arrive in their trailer on jane street the day after thanksgiving ever year since 1988 or 1989 (forgot which!)---if you are in new york during this period in time - go pay them a visit; fanatastic family!!!!!!
Good Christmas Read  Mar 23, 2003
I heard about this book in a Country Living magazine. I kept the title in my mind for a couple of years until I ran across it again and bought in on this It was worth the wait. The book is about a family who sells Christmas trees every year on Jane Street in NYC. It reminds you of the importance of family and confirms that everyone needs their family and even strangers can become your family. This book reconfirms the value of caring about others.
Okay  Jan 8, 2002
While I thought this would be a story about Christmas in New York I was wrong. The book was mostly about a father/daughter relationship gone sour, and then brought back together.

This was an enjoyable book about how the Christmas season can tear a family apart and bring them back together.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a somewhat touching story to read this holiday season. Although, this book can be read year round.
