Publisher's Description

From the author of An Amish Christmas and A Plain & Fancy Christmas comes a heartwarming novel of marriage and family, new beginnings and poignant homecomings—just in time for the holidays.
After her husband, Shep, loses his latest job, Jennie Davis is grateful to be in a car en route to beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Shep has inherited a house from a distant cousin, along with the cousin’s long-established bicycle shop. The move gives Jennie, Shep, and their two children a welcome chance for a fresh start.
While Shep dives into his new venture at the bike shop, Jennie carefully restores their broken-down house. She loves being a stay-at-home mom but yearns to find some fulfillment outside of her family—particularly as they struggle financially. On morning walks, she forges a friendship with her Amish neighbor, Mattie Fisher, who opens up about her modest way of life. Mattie’s unswerving good character in the face of adversity encourages Jennie to seek practical solutions to her own difficulties. A passing remark by Jennie’s son transforms desperation about their finances into inspiration, leading her to embark upon a candy-making enterprise.
Soon, Jennie’s newfound purpose collides with Shep’s growing stress at work and long-simmering tensions between husband and wife rise to the surface. As the holiday season approaches, their family is challenged as never before—until an unexpected visitor arrives to give Jennie the greatest gift of all.

    An Amish Gift
    October 15, 2013
    This review was written for An Amish Gift.
    Jennie Davis looked forward to her family getting a fresh start. They were moving to a house, sight unseen, that her husband Shep inherited. When they arrived in Lancaster County, they discovered the house was in shambles, much like their family.

    Jennie soon met Mattie Fisher. Mattie was an Amish neighbor. She had a solid family and life.

    Jennie was desperately trying to keep her family together. Her husband was distant, her son was angry and her daughter was keeping everything bottled up. Money was tight so Jennie started making candy as a second income. The candy business took her family in a direction that really surprised her.

    The main story is of Jennie and her family's relationship and monetary struggles. The secondary story is about Mattie and her family's struggles. A smaller story line is of Jennie and Shep's siblings.

    One aspect I enjoyed about the story was how Jennie talked to her dog Scout - a lot. Anyone who has conversations with their pets will enjoy reading about Jennie and Scout.

    There was a message conveyed that some family members were much better people and happier after there was a divorce in the family. This could give the wrong message to some people, whether intentional or not.

    I wouldn't call this Christian Fiction. It is definitely an uplifting story of families overcoming obstacles. There was only one mention of faith in the whole book. This was a quick, enjoyable read. Jennie knew nothing about the Amish before their move to Lancaster County. If you don't know much about the Amish, you'll enjoy learning about them through Jennie's eyes. So many families today are dysfunctional and An Amish Gift touches on this. One thing that was missing for me was the mention of God, who really was the one who helped them through their struggles. This story is centered more on Jennie's family, who is English. I think fans of Amish fiction will still enjoy An Amish Gift, I know I did.

    I received a free copy of this book from The Christian Manifesto And Ballantine Books in exchange for my honest review.

    I read this book in one sitting. It just sucked me in, lol... It really deals with alot of real time problems our familys face in todays economy and envirionment. I could relate to the teenage problems and the money problems. She dealt with them so deftly and the interwining of the amish beliefs into their beliefs was lovely. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good interesting book. They all learned good lessons from their amish neighbors and it was so heartlifting to see how it all worked out. You wont be disappointed with this book.

    What an entertaining book...I read it in one afternoon. The story begins with what is a new beginning for the Davis familly..Jennie, Shep, Tim, Willa and their dog Scout. Can you imagine a relative you have never heard of leaving you their home, and business?

    What we soon discover is that both the house and business need a lot of TLC. On several walks with Scout, Jennie meets an Amish family, first Mattie Fisher, and then the whole family and extended.

    We travel through two Christmas's with the Davis Family, on the first there is so much anger and bitterness. As we travel along the next year, something changes.

    What an enjoyable read between the two cultures. Yes there are differences, but there are also many of the same problems. We see how things are handled within each family, and we come to love them all.

    A really different story of Amish books...I for one Loved it, and didn't want it to end!

    I was provided with a copy of this book through the Publisher Random House, and Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review.
