Book Review - An Amish Christmas

About the Book
Enjoy this Amish Christmas bestseller with an additional new novella from romance author Kelly Long.

"Christmas Cradles" by Kelly Long -- When Anna Stolis takes over for her aunt, the local Amish midwife in Paradise, Christmas night heats up with multiple deliveries, three strangers' quilts, and the help from resourceful and strong Asa Lapp, whose job it is to get Anna through a dangerous blizzard to complete her midwifery rounds.

“A Miracle for Miriam” by Kathleen Fuller: This Christmas, Miriam must decide whether to guard herself or accept the love of a man who once broke her heart.

“A Choice to Forgive” by Beth Wiseman: Lydia, a widow who has given up on love, is shocked when Daniel-- a past love-- returns to the Order, and her life.

“One Child” by Barbara Cameron: This snowy Lancaster Christmas Eve will see two couples’ lives changed by the birth of one child.

Contributer Barbara Cameron is the author of fifteen novels and three nationally televised movies (HBO), as well as a recipient of the first Romance Writers of America Golden Heart.


My Take on the Book
What I found interesting about these stories was that they were loosely connected, but they they could easily be read by themselves. Each of the stories give you a glimpse into the Amish culture and values as well as they provide the reader stories that are timeless Christmas classics. Many remind me of stories you would find in Hallmark Movies. I am not saying this in a negative fashion, but they read much like the way that Hallmark Movies do, and in the end there is redemption in most cases.

Each of the stores show strong female characters that are on very different journeys. Each has struggles, but each also finds resolution in the end. 

All three of the books are inspirational Christmas stories and quick reads. You will truly find these books to be ones that you will want to share with others in the future!
