Today I’m reviewing A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant… a novella found in An Amish Christmas Quilt. This story is a part of the Seasons Of The Heart series by Charlotte Hubbard.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Seth Brenneman didn’t expect his holiday would include rescuing pregnant young Mary Kauffman and her two children. . .or having unexpected feelings for the still-grieving widow.
But when they must play the leads in an impromptu live Nativity pageant to help his Amish community, will their roles reveal their hearts–and work a miracle for a lifetime?
Christmas is a time when faith brings peace, family brings warmth and new romance brings joy! – Tweet this!
This story begins with Mary Kauffman and her two stepchildren arriving in Willow Ridge, looking for her “Aunt Miriam”; but before they find her, Mary goes into labor!
Mary is another wonderful character created by the amazing Charlotte Hubbard. When Seth Brenneman gets a visit from a strange dog, who compels Seth to follow him, he finds Mary and the children.
I love how Charlotte continues to give her readers more stories from the wonderful series we love. This story, A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant, is part of the Seasons Of The Heart series, and if you’re reading the entire series, it should be read after Breath of Spring (and just before Harvest of Blessings).
All the other wonderful characters we love are here… and ready to welcome Mary and the children to their community. Charlotte does an awesome job creating – and maintaining – interesting, realistic characters.
Honestly, they are so interesting; most of us would just love to visit them. Story after story, the characters grow and develop, adding life, love, faith and hope to each story.
Charlotte’s books promote love, faith, hope and family – and this novella continues the tradition. Of course, there’s a wonderful Christmas message, too.
There are lots of interesting events packed into this novella… I don’t want to leak any spoilers, so I’ll leave the rest of the story for you to read for yourself. You’re going to LOVE it!
I hope you’ve read the first book in this series… it’s definitely my favorite way to read continuing stories. Although each book can easily be read as a stand-alone, it’s much better to enjoy the Willow Ridge saga, as it continues.
