Book Review of "An Amish Christmas, December in Lancaster County"

I was so excited to receive 'An Amish Christmas, December in Lancaster County' to read and review.  This book is a collection of four Amish Christmas Novellas: 'A Miracle for Miriam' by Kathleen Fuller, 'A Choice to Forgive' by Beth Wiseman, 'One Child' by Barbara Cameron, and 'Christmas Cradles' by Kelly Long.  I love reading Amish fiction, so this was such a treat for me!  I had previously read books by Beth Wiseman and Kathleen Fuller, but had not read anything by Barbara Cameron or Kelly Long before this.  All four of the novellas were wonderful reading!

The stories are all centered around Amish communities in Lancaster County at Christmastime.  They are heartwarming tales full of emotion, romance, and drama.  There is a glossary of Amish words at the front of the book. At the end of the book is a group study guide and several Amish recipes.  I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Hi, Athena! I'm Heidi - your mentor for the Spring session of B90 Days. I can see, just from your profile on your blog, that you and I have much in common. We both have 3 kids - a mix of bio and adopted, we both homeschool, we both have 2 dogs (though mine are pugs, and we're both Christians!
I look forward to getting to know you better as we walk through the Bible together this year. I hope you'll stop by and visit my blog too, so we can stay in touch beyond our 90 days . . .
