An Amish Family Christmas by Marta Perry, Patricia Davids


Celebrate the holidays in Amish Country

Heart of Christmas by Marta Perry

Amish teacher Susannah Miller suddenly has two new students: the children of her former love. Widowed father Toby Unger broke Susannah's heart ten years ago, but now the handsome Amish man desperately needs help with his troubled little ones. Can the joy of the season reunite two lonely hearts in time for Christmas?

A Plain Holiday by Patricia Davids

Outspoken nanny Sally Yoder left her Amish community for her rumspringa. Though her heart is back home, the Amish man she loves, Ben Lapp, will never love a bold woman like her. But when a snowstorm strands her, her young charges and Ben on a remote farm at Christmastime, they both might discover that love is the true holiday spirit.

My review: An Amish Family Christmas by Marta Perry, Patricia Davids


This book as two novellas about Christmas. An Amish Family Christmas is a good reminder what Christmas is about. Remembering our Saviors birth. Being close to our families. Thinking of others. Both Patricia and Marta both got me to feel like Christmas mood this hot August day, the way they describe the scenes with words. They both are not afraid to mention scriptures, prayers and leaving you feeling uplifted.

Heart of Christmas by Marta Perry

Susannah Miller is a Amish school teacher. Now close to Christmas Susannah has two new students. Their father is a widower Toby Unger. Ten years ago Susannah and Toby were to be married instead he ran off to another Amish community. William 8 and Anna 6.
Susannah and Toby must work together for the children's sake. William is acting out. Anna is really shy since their mothers death.

A Plain Holiday by Patricia Davids

Sally Yoder is a Amish nanny who is living with a Englisher family. She thinks she will leave the Amish.
When unexpected she is sent with the children back to Amish country with their grandma. She loved Ben but new they would not be together so she left to take a job in the city.

Ben Lapp is working on a farm with race horses. The owner had left the Amish faith. Sally chased Ben for two years telling everyone she was going to marry him. Now she is going to be on the same farm.

Kimi Higgins is spoiled. She does not want to spend a old fashion Christmas. She would rather text her friends or be in Paris with her parents.

Ryder Higgins is a active child. He loves the horse farm.

I enjoyed both stories and will read more from both Marta Perry and Patricia Davids in the future.

I was given this ebook by Net Galley and Harlequin. In exchange agreed to give honest review of An Amish Family Christmas.
