    December 19, 2013
    Britney Adams
    A Christmas Promise is a novella that is sure to delight readers this holiday season! This colonial Christmas story, set in Schoenbrunn Village, Ohio, is a warmhearted tale of love and faith. Tamera Kraft's descriptive writing of the Moravian missionaries and the Lenape Indians brings these characters to life. I enjoyed this meaningful story and look forward to reading more from Tamera Lynn Kraft!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All thoughts expressed are my own.

    I'm always on the lookout for a unique Christmas story and this one made the search worth it. This is about Moravian missionaries to the Lenape native Americans. It is a beautiful story of faith and courage at Christmas. A quick read that kept me riveted in one sitting. Loved its sweetness and important message. I also love that it's a very accurate historical look at this culture and time. As an amateur historian I appreciated all the little details that revealed a genuine view of the life of the Moravians. Very well researched and written. You won't be disappointed!

    "A Christmas Promise," by Tamara Lynn Kraft, is set in colonial America. A few years before December 23, 1773, John Brunner and his wife Anna move from their familiar hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to Schoenbrunn Village, Ohio as Moravian missionaries to the Lenape native tribes.

    Two days before Christmas, converted Lenape, Paul, and the elders call John away from the safety of their village to another settlement where they meet with the chief of a war-like Lenape band. Both John and Anna hide something from each other. John promises Anna he'll return no later than Christmas Day, but hides the danger he is sure to be in. Likewise, Anna has her own secret that she hides from John. What isn't hidden is her growing fear for their safety. When Paul is delayed, Anna frets, but God provides a traditional Moravian Christmas for her and the children through the aid of their Moravian church. Throughout this stressful time apart, God deals with John and Anna concerning their own failures to trust Him and each other. When God humbles them, they discover His Christmas promise of peace.

    I can truly say I enjoyed reading this little story and devoured it in one night. It captivates the reader quickly within the first five pages. The plot is tight, and the writing good. The story line uplifts, and the dialog moves the story forward. Personally, I would have liked a glossary at the back for the various words specific to the Moravians and the Lenape, but the context did provide some sense of meaning. I give it four and one half out of five stars.

    I read this book when the author, Tamara Lynn Kraft sent the back cover copy through the ACFW Historical loop and asked for additional reader reviews. She provided this story free of charge for that purpose and I am under no obligation to provide a positive review.
