An Amish Christmas: December In Lancaster County

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.

Maybe I am developing a taste for Amish romance books, or it could be because it is a Christmas book, regardless why, I really enjoyed this book. Though the three stories are written by 3 different authors, Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Barbara Cameron; the stories are woven together with the same characters appearing in all three stories.

You have it all in these three stories: love, forgiveness, hope, and of course - Christmas. I have never read anything by any of these three authors, but if this book is an indication, all three are worth reading more of.

I have vacationed in Lancaster County, PA, and it was refreshing to visit it again through this book. If you enjoy Amish books, Christmas books, or both, you will enjoy An Amish Christmas. Check it out.

The book is available from Thomas Nelson Publishers.

Thanks to Thomas Nelson for the review copy.
