Naomi's Gift re-introduces twenty-four-year-old Naomi King, who has been burned twice by love and has all but given up on marriage and children. As Christmas approaches-a time of family, faith, and hope for many others-Naomi is more certain than ever her life will be spent as an old maid, helping with the family's quilting business and taking care of her eight siblings. Then she meets Caleb, a young widower with a 7-year-old daughter, and her world is once again turned upside-down.

Naomi's Gift is an easy book to read, with short chapters, and a good pace that leads the reader from start to finish in two or three hours. There are good descriptions of Amish life, such as church services and quilting, and between these descriptions are characters ranging from the "overly-critical mother" to the "meddlesome older sister." The climax comes during a Christmas party when Naomi misunderstands Calebs sentiments toward her and chooses to walk home in the middle of a blizzard.
Naomi King is the eldest of nine children and has had her heart broken twice. Now she rigidly guards her heart, so that she won't be seen as an easy-woman. Caleb Schmucker is a widower with an eight-year-old daughter, returning home for the holidays. Their paths cross when Naomi and the daughter, Susan, meet at the farmers' market and form a bond over quilts. Soon neither Caleb nor Naomi can stop thinking about the other. Forces, however, such as Caleb's older sister, their neighbor Irene Wagler, and Naomis mother, attempt to keep them apart.
Amy Clipston has written a story that will keep the reader occupied for a holiday evening of relaxing reading. However, for those who enjoy slower, more realistic character development, original plots, and more dramatic endings, this may not be the book to read. This is an excellent holiday book for any fan of romantic fiction. Demelza Ramirez, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
