An Amish Christmas - review

This is a lovely hardback anthology of 3 Christmas novellas with Amish settings. The stories are heart-warming and inspiring-- perfect reading for a cozy winter evening by the fire with a hot cup of tea. The book also includes several authentic Amish recipes. It would make a great gift for anyone on your list who appreciates simple, old-fashioned joys.

Here's the publisher's synopsis for each of the stories in this book:

An Amish Christmas: December in Lancaster County
By Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Barbara Cameron

Follow the lives of three Amish families through the Christmas season.

A Miracle for Miriam: Miriam fell for Seth, but he broke her heart. Years later, after he’s nearly killed in an accident, Miriam sees him at a Christmas party and notices something is different about him—not just how he looks, but how he acts. When Seth pursues her, she must decide whether to guard her heart or accept his love.

A Choice to Forgive: Lydia has loved two men in her life. Daniel disappeared one Christmas Eve long ago, leaving only a note saying he wanted to live in the Englisch world. And Elam, Daniel's brother, to whom she has been happily married for 15 years. When Elam dies, Lydia gives up on ever loving again. But she is shocked when Daniel wants to return to the Order and her life.

One Child: The birth of one child forever changed the world two thousand years ago. On this snowy Lancaster Christmas Eve, another child will change the world of two couples.
