My Review

If you enjoy Amish fiction, this book is a must for you! Written by four well known authors in Amish fiction, I thoroughly entertained in each of these stories. For me, the four short stories worked so well because it takes me so long to read a full size book, I enjoyed reading a story so fast!

Each of these stories have their own unique and difficult situations, and in each the characters were like real, and I felt like I was reading about real people! One of the fun parts of these stories was seeing how each family celebrated Christmas. Though the Amish all have the same tradition, each family's Christmas was unique and interesting. You can read above in the book description about each story, and I highly recommend that you try out this book. One of the best Christmas books so far this year that I have read!

This book was provided by BookLook Bloggers for me to read and review. I was not expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine!

  1. A very unique kind of blog providing information about Christianity to those who are seekers of this religion. assignment writing service can also prove helpful for making people aware of such books. This site is more interesting because it briefly describes the contents of each book. Also good and facilitating for parents as it also gives information about the books and gifts of children interest.
