Sarah’s Christmas Miracle is best read before A Plain Man…
Today I’m reviewing Sarah’s Christmas Miracle by Mary Ellis.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Sarah Beachy has plenty to be joyous about as autumn leaves start to fall.
She loves her job at the English bed-and-breakfast where she cooks and refreshes rooms between guests. She has a serious beau, and everyone expects an engagement soon.
Why, then, would she jeopardize everything by suddenly deciding to take a trip to Cleveland to track down a brother who left the Order years ago?
Her family’s faith in God is put to the test as the holiest night of the year approaches and Sarah remains far away.
Sarah’s mother, Elizabeth, has been missing her son for such a long time…will she lose her daughter to the English world as well?
Or will the Beachy family receive an unexpected Christmas miracle?
Will Sarah marry Adam, or will she follow her brother’s path and leave home? – Tweet this!
Mary Ellis writes beautiful stories…
I knew even before I read Sarah’s Christmas Miracle that it would be a wonderful Christmas story… something to read each December — or anytime you’re in the mood for a holiday story (I read Christmas stories whenever I need a warm, cozy feeling)!
This was a perfect Christmas novella, wasn’t it? It features the prodigal son… will he ever return home? It also has the coming-of-age of his sister, who has never given up, but is holding on to the hope that he will someday return home.
In the meantime, Adam, who has been courting Sarah for several years, is getting more than a little frustrated because she won’t make a commitment to him.
I loved reading about Sarah and the other members of her family, especially the bishop — who is, in my humble opinion, ornery as the day is long. Well, maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on him… after all, he loves his son, but his son left home. Will he lose his daughter too?
These are wonderful, believable characters who make me want to move to Fredericksburg! Doesn’t it sound like a lovely place to live? Mary paints such a picture — I could smell the turkey.
This novella has everything I love in a book… it’s Amish, about Christmas, and written by one of my favorite authors! I will definitely be recommending it — especially at Christmas time!
