Publisher's Description

A Mother's HelperMercy Lapp is ready for a fresh start. Having lost her beloved fiance in a fishing accident during his rumschpringe, she escapes the painful memories by moving from her community in Shipshewana, Indiana, to Seymour, Missouri, where she takes a job as a mother's helper. She isn't exactly shy, but she's hesitant to get involved with the youth in the community because she isn't going to stay. She especially doesn't want a new romance. An Adventurous HeroAbner Hilty is excited to see his twin brother, Abram, for the first time in years. The two fled their hometown of Shipshewana when their witness of a murder put their lives in danger, Abner heading to Montana to work on a ranch and hunt big game, Abram meeting a girl in Missouri, marrying, and settling down there. Abner decides to spend the holidays with them in Seymour, but he has every intention of returning to Montana, maybe even for good. An Unexpected SnowstormAt a chance encounter, Abner is immediately drawn to Mercy, and even more so when he realizes that they've met before, back in Shipshewana. Initially alarmed, Mercy soon warms to his attentions, even though she keeps him at arm's length. She also branches out and begins attending youth functions, forming new friendships that are solidified during a rare snowstorm. Just when Mercy and Abner are beginning to think about a long-term relationship, Mercy gets a phone call that changes everything. The information would have been welcome months ago, but now that she knows Abner, she's torn, and she will have to do some serious soul-searching to decide how to act on it.

    A White Christmas in Webster County had me hooked from the very first page. Mercy Lapp was taken back when she met Abner Hilty in the store and his forwardness toward her. Only to discover they both were from Shipshewana, IN. Mercy had gone to Seymour, MO to be a mothers helper, a year after her boyfriend Paul had drowned. Abner was in Seymour to visit his twin brother, Abram Hilty.

    It was a treat to see characters from Hiltons Amish of Seymour County and Amish of Webster County return in this charming story. The characters were well developed with enough information shared about previous characters, where A White Christmas in Webster County could be read as a standalone book. However, I would highly recommend reading all the previous books first.

    My emotions and senses had a workout as I read this top notch story about Mercy and Abner. This story was filled with plenty of dialogue that was not empty words but added to the story, as well as romantic moments along with action packed scenes. I was surprised by all the unpredictable twists and turns especially when Mercys dad called and shared the news that Paul was alive and had come back to Shipshewana to claim Mercy as his intended wife. Will Mercy return back to Shipshewana as her dad insisted or will she fulfill her obligation as a mothers help to Shanna and Matthew?

    There were issues of deception, persistence, different views of love, determination, trust, heartbreak, beliefs even amongst the different Amish communities, along with one following their inner heart and Gods will for their lives. Hilton shares the gospel in bits and pieces throughout her stories which adds richness to her books.

    Readers who have never read books by Laura V. Hilton will be amazed at her talent. I look forward to more 5 star plus from her. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for my honest review, which I have given.

    This review was written for White Christmas In Webster County, A - eBook.
    A White Christmas in Webster County is a must read this Christmas season. OK for any time of the year you could read A White Christmas in Webster County. It is beautifully written that no reader could get lost at following along with the characters. Laura V. Hilton uses the right amount of descriptions, that you could almost feel like you are right there with the character experiencing what they are experiencing as it is happening.

    Have you ever been walked all over?

    Have you ever had someone tell you what you HAD to do?

    Have you ever been lied to?

    These questions are themed in A White Christmas in Webster County. One or more characters will have had to experience these questions by the end of the book. Also themed into the book is trust and faith. Do you trust? Do you have faith?

    I loved it. I was on the edge of seat to know what was going to happen next. I loved all of the characters. The book was easy to follow. I did not feel lost in what I was reading. A White Christmas in Webster County is a very clean fictional book based around the Amish.

    An Amish Christmas story with more romance than I expected. At times, it was too intimate for my taste. I think readers expect a more chaste read from an Amish story. The characters and scenes were realistic in this story about a grieving girl who thinks she never wants to love again because losing hurts too much. An unexpected plot twist adds more drama and tension.

    Another wonderful book by Laura V. Hilton. This book took me a little bit to get started but once I did I did not want to put it down. Poor Mercy is a mother's helper and she just really needs a break and a miracle of love to happen for her. Great book
