Series: Pebble Creek Amish
This free short story e-romance is an exclusive bonus from The Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman. Fans of the series will enjoy this chance to briefly revisit Pebble Creek, and new readers will be introduced to an Amish community that is more deeply explored in the three full novels, A Promise for Miriam, A Home for Lydia, and A Wedding for Julia. As a bonus, this free eBook also includes Amish homestyle recipes for chicken and dumplings, green beans, and fresh bread.
Heavy snow blankets the southwestern Wisconsin Amish community as nineteen-year-old Grace Miller closes the schoolhouse for Christmas break. She’s looking forward to having extra time to help the family prepare for the holiday, and she is hoping to get a few more drawings in of the beautiful, snowy Pebble Creek landscape. Her courtship with Adam Lapp is going on six months, and Grace can’t wait to give him his present: a blue-and-brown buggy blanket she crocheted for him. Yes, this Christmas is going to be especially joyful.
Yet, amid the cheer of snowshoe outings, church potlucks, and holiday festivities, Grace is given a bittersweet reminder of the Christmas story. Grief is present with celebration, and though the future is rarely certain, she is given a heartwarming glimpse that God knows our needs before we do and will provide.

Ms. Chapman mentions on her blog today that after writing the three books, she loved the Pebble Creek stories and they did so well that Harvest House agreed to let her write two FREE short stories (one to introduce the series and one to wrap it up).

What a fine ending
Vannetta does an excellent job ending the series. This short story begins with Grace, daughter to Gabe and Miriam, who is all grown up and in a courtship with Adam Lapp.
Christmas is coming how will Grace and Adam celebrate? When they meet an Englisch lady who has been searching for Grace, what surprises will the future hold? Will Grace be tempted away from the Amish way of life? Will she leave Adam to pursue a career in the Englisch world?
Many new exciting events take place in this story, but rest assured everyone ends up having a Happy Christmas.
To quote Vannetta
Its the Christmas story, isnt it? And the ending is always one of grace.
Read it just read it. Youll be blessed, just as I was blessed.

Here we see Grace all grown up. We see her future unfold with happiness and sadness, just as the events of our own lives. The little novella was a feel good ending and you wanted it to continue and leaves you wanting to read more. I picked this up free and was really glad I did!

Though not a main character, she is woven importantly throughout. In Christmas at Pebble Creek little Grace is grown up and in love with her nemesis, Adam, from childhood. She also still is gifted with her drawing/sketching. This was quite a sweet little read and one well worth downloading and spending a few moments enjoying.

She is now a grown woman, instead of the sweet little girl growing up in the Pebble Creek series. I really enjoyed this quick read that provided a window into her adult life and a little glimpse at the lives of her parents and siblings.
This Pebble Creek series consists of three full length books and two free novellas. All are extremely well-written and I highly recommend them all.
