    Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert

    Curiosity gets the best of Englischer Chase Wellington when he investigates the twenty-five-year-old disappearance of an Amish baby. When he finds adventurous Elle McAllister in Iowa will his discoveries upend her world?

    My thoughts: This was a very sweet romance. I loved Chase. He was a dear, kind, considerate, and smart. Elle was a dear, and as much as she and her adoptive mother imagined where she came from she had never guessed the truth. Beautiful story. Unfinished- but maybe it will be wrapped up at the end of the book...

    Mourning Star by Amanda Flower

    Eden Hochstetler slips from her parents fudge shop to investigate the death of her friend Isaac. Who is guilty? Isaacs handsome great nephew Jesse, an angry Englischer, or someone else?

    My thoughts: This is the first story I ever read by Ms. Flower's. It is a cozy mystery, where Eden and her friend Gina investigates a murder of an Amish man - the story was good. Not what I expected, but very good. I suspected who-dun-it, but hadn't made the connection between suspect to yeah, "he" did it by the time the story ended so it was a bit of surprise to me.

    In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall

    Heartbroken Kore Detweiler avoids North Star after Savilla Beiler rejects his love. But when he is unexpectedly called to return home, he and Savilla must join forces to keep a family together.

    My thoughts: It was interesting reading Kore and Savilla's story. While a romance it took some cunexpected twists and a lot of anger for these characters to find themselves. I did skim this story a lot, but enjoyed getting reacquainted with characters from another one of Ms. Woodsmall's books.

    Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark

    Andy Danner left North Star to join a new Amish settlement in Mississippi. His little brother devises a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas and unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in a reclusive widowers life.

    My thoughts: This was my favorite story in the collection. I loved Sam and how dedicated he was to t he family and people he loved and how determined he was to reach his goals. And how unselfishly he gave when the need arose. A very sweet story, the best one in this collection. Loved it.

    My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was bought this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I enjoyed this collection of four Amish stories centered around one birthing center and four babies born the same day, twenty-five years prior. I liked find out how all those babies turned out -- and the first story's strings that were left untied were neatly tied and trimmed by the end of the book.

    Andy Danner left North Star to join a new Amish settlement in Mississippi. His little brother devises a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas and unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in a reclusive widowers life.

    Whoever came up with the concept of this book was totally imaginative. I think if you were not in the Christmas spirit before reading this book each one of these stories, individually, will put you there. There is a town called North Star, Pennsylvania and one precious night Rebekah, a midwife, helps deliver four babies into the world. Fast forward until now and these four children, three girls and one boy, are each involved in a romance and some sort of healing. This is riveting stuff. Each one, by itself, is really a deep story that is full of tender drama. Each author gives us great characters that we can really identify with and care for and root for their respective romances to succeed. Dont start this book late at night because you are going to want to finish it before you go to bed. I think everyone should read this book, not only for the fun of it, but for the healing that the various characters have to deal with. I think that this book would make an excellent gift to give to friends and family.

    This is a book of 4 wonderful Christmas novellas. These are all Amish stories that are connected by a single night in December. The main characters of each story were born on December 1 in an Amush birthing clinic in the town of North Star.

    I loved every story and they were all wonderful. The four stories are Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert, Mourning Star by Amanda Flower, In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall and Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark.

    I did not want to put any of the stories down. This is such an uplifting set of Christmas novellas.

    I received this book from Bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion.
