My Review

Amish Christmas at North Star is four short stories; Guiding Star, by Katie Ganshert, Morning Star, by Amanda Flower, In the Stars, by Cindy Woodsmall and Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark  and Emily Clark. One snowy night in November 1990 was a night Rebekah Schlaback would never forget. Four young ladies gave birth that night, and Rebekah's only help were the nervous father's to be. Each of these four stories are about these babies that were born, 25 years ago. As you read these stories, you will find many twists and turns, secrets, disappointments and happiness in the lives of these four people and their parents. This is a great book, one that can be read around the Holiday's but can also be enjoyed at anytime during the year. My favorite time to read it was on a snowy night here where I live. It just made the story more interesting!

I received this book from Blogging for Books to read and review. I expressed my own opinion in this review. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
