    Newly married Herman and Susanna Wagler face adjustments as they learn to know each other better and to trust and accept each other, despite intrusion from the past that threatens their love and happy home. Why would Susanna's former beau, Matthew Yoder, return to the Amish community he left and cast aspersions on her with his confessions? Will her future be ruined because of the doubts planted in people's minds?

    This moving novella is a swift read that tugs at the heart. Set around Thanksgiving time and leading up to Christmas, now is the perfect season to read the touching tale. The slice of Amish life in Iowa offers well-developed characters the reader can't help but care about. Their growth brings hope and expectation for Herman and Susanna as well as all who read the story.

    Great story! Susanna was dating a guy before he left Amish community, and only few weeks after her marriage to another - who truly loves her, does this guy come back and wants to win her for himself. I really like how she battles with herself for what is right and ends up truly loving the man she married!! loved this book.

    Young newlyweds, Susanna and Herman Wagler are adjusting to their new life together. Susanna still holds onto memories of her past love, Matthew Yoder, who left the Amish community during his rumspringa. As preparations for Thanksgiving Day were being made at Susanna's sister's home Matthew suddenly shows up. Matthew's presence threatens Susanna's relationship with Herman, and places Herman in a depressed state, worried that his wife doesn't truly love him. To complicate matters Susanna is heartbroken that Herman refuses to celebrate Christmas with her family. Is Susanna strong enough to conquer the obstacles set before her by her old boyfriend, and the strict beliefs of her husband?

    This story of young Amish love is poignant and emotional. Formerly Amish, Jerry Eicher is very familiar with the Amish culture and their practices. He pens a well defined portrayal of the community and activities common to the Amish. His characters are realistic and true to their identities. The locale is well described with accuracy and familiarity. His personal insights into Amish tradition enhance this story of struggle in the young lives of Herman and Susanna. Although a novella, much transpires throughout this story of past love, new commitments and adjustment.

    What a wonderful Christmas book, it was hard to put down. Well worth the read. The way that Jerry writes you can picture yourself right in the story along side the characters.

    Susanna and Herman are newly weds and Susanna's ex beau Matthew who left the Amish to become English arrives just before Thanksgiving. He wants to get back together with Susanna not knowing that she is married. Matthew goes and talks with the bishop and that in turns brings the Deacon to Susanna and Herman's door to find out some of the details of Matthew and Susanna's relationship.

    Susanna has to learn how to get along with her mother-in-law and also how to take care of Herman when he gets sick. When they first got married Herman said that will would not be spending Christmas morning with Susanna's family since he grew up doing something in January. But through all that happened between Thanksgiving and Christmas he changed his mind and they had a wonderful time with Susanna's family on Christmas morning

    This review was written for Susanna's Christmas Wish - eBook.
    Susanna's Christmas Wish is an interesting book which keeps you reading to find out how it ends. Susanna's Amish boyfriend,Matthew, leaves her after many years of being in love, and becomes an English person. Her heart is broken, but she eventually marries Herman, a kind Amish man. Then her former boyfriend returns to see if he can make peace about certain things. This brings a lot of suspense...
