LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Warm Fuzzy FeelingMarch 10, 2020LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am way behind on reading this one due to the passing of my dad in November. That being said I enjoyed reading about the Christmas season just as much in March therefore do not let that deter you from reading anytime. This is one of my favorite Amish Collections as the stories each pulled on my heartstrings and at times had me tear up over the circumstances. The characters are tangible and you wish you could sit and have coffee and pastries with them. An added bonus is each story shares a recipe at the end which I plan on trying. This collection celebrates the season with good food, family camaraderie, and a shared Faith that combines into an all over good feeling. All three authors are great storytellers and leave you wanting more at the end. Give this one a chance and you will find it on your keeper shelf to read again each Christmas.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Heartwarming Christmas CollectionFebruary 9, 2020KavRCanadaGender: femaleA lovely Christmas collection by some much loved authors. I love the way each novella showcases the warmth and love of family at Christmas. Life isn't simple but faith can be and these authors have illustrated that with heartwarming stories that set a gentle holiday mood.
An Amish Family Christmas by Leslie Gould -- Has all the feels I need in a Christmas story. A young woman struggling with meeting the expectations of her large extended family while nursing a wounded heart. Plenty of characters to love on and a few to hold grudges against just to spice things up. And a betrayed love that might have a chance at mending. Love the way the author weaves in the advent tradition of counting down to Christmas.
An Amish Christmas Recipe Box by Jan Drexler -- Christmas baking is definitely the way to a man's heart...at least that's what Ada is hoping. Only what if her culinary magic strikes the wrong man? A heart-tugging romance about mistaken expectations and the wisdom of looking beyond the surface to assess the measure of a man...or woman.
An Unexpected Christmas Gift by Kate Lloyd -- An unexpected plot tugged at my heartstrings. Maria's world has been shattered and an impulsive journey into Amish country has her poised on the brink of self-discovery...and the possibility of romance. The first person narrative brought a sense of urgency to her story and kept me on edge right to the very end.

"An Unexpected Christmas Gift" by Kate Lloyd
After taking one of those on-line DNA tests to trace your heritage, Maria is shocked to discover she was adopted. Even more surprising, she is related to an Amish Family! She sets out in blizzard conditions to find her "roots", only to end up crashing her car and going into a ditch. Taken in by the Amish family she targeted as a possible relative, will they open up to a stranger, an Englischer, about family secrets? Will knowing the truth make her happy?
All these mouth-watering stories are written from a Christian point of view, and each will draw you in to find out what will happen. As a bonus, recipes are including for a yummy item from each tale (see them on the bookreadingtic blog). I recommend this 5-star book who enjoy Amish stories that will touch your heart.
