Book Review~A Simple Amish Christmas

About the Book: Will Annie find acceptance in the Amish community she left behind?  Annie Weaver always planned to return home, but the 20-year-old RN has lived in Philadelphia for three years now.  Her time of rumschpringe is about to come to an abrupt end, bringing for Annie an overwhelming sense of loneliness as the Christmas season is in full swing.  She returns home and finds herself face-to-face with a budding romance with an Amish farmer, and Annie has several important choices to make. 
What I Thought: Everyone who knows me well knows that I love Amish fiction.  Make it an Amish fiction Christmas story, and its even better!  There are certain books that come around that are better than the others-A Simple Amish Christmas by Vannetta Chapman is one of them.  I was captivated from the first page to the last page, and read the book in record time because I didn't want to put it down!  I really felt like I knew the characters, like I was in the story watching it unfold.  Annie was a great character, having had experience in both worlds and learning where God wants her to be.  The fact that during her time among the Englisch she had become an RN added an interesting twist to the story, as higher education and training is frowned upon among the Amish.  If you want a sweet, captivating Christmas story for the holidays, you need to get A Simple Amish Christmas
