An Amish Christmas Gift | Amy Clipston, Ruth Reid, Kelly Irvin

 

Today I am reviewing An Amish Christmas Gift, three Amish novellas, by Amy Clipston, Ruth Reid, and Kelly Irvin.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Naomi’s Gift by Amy Clipston

Naomi has started to think that she isn’t meant to find love, but she might receive more than she ever hoped for this Christmas.

Twenty-four-year-old Naomi King, who has been burned twice by love, has all but given up on marriage and children. As Christmas approaches a time of family, faith, and hope for many others Naomi is more certain than ever her life will be spent as an old maid, helping with the family s quilting business and taking care of her eight siblings. Then she meets Caleb, a young widower with a 7-year-old daughter, and her world is once again turned upside-down.

An Unexpected Joy by Ruth Reid

Abigail has driven other suitors away, but can Micah find a way to show her he cares?

Abigail Kemp has managed to frighten off every bu who s ever driven her home from a singing. Sure she will live to be an old maid, Abigail starts saving her money to buy a horse so she can at least have some independence.

Micah Zook is looking for a caregiver for his grandmother, and Abigail needs a new job. He never expected that Abigail would talk so much . . . or that his grandmother would keep finding ways to set the two of them up.

Despite Abigail s constant chatter, she and Micah become friends until Micah makes a decision that leaves Abigail feeling betrayed. With Christmas in their midst, can Micah find a way to reconcile with Abigail and to reveal what s on his heart?

A Christmas Visitor by Kelly Irvin

Frannie Mast returns to Bee County for Christmas, but her heart stays back in Missouri with an Englisch farm boy.

Frannie knows her parents have the best of intentions when they send her back to Bee County, Texas, to live with her aunt Abigail and her husband Mordecai. After all, she knows nothing can come of a relationship with Rocky, the handsome but Englisch farmer boy back in Missouri. It’s best to put those feelings aside, no matter how hard it is. But all bets are off when Rocky follows Frannie to Texas to plead his case. Could he be the Christmas gift to end all gifts?”

MY THOUGHTS:

Naomi’s Gift by Amy Clipston

If you’ve read Amy’s books, you’ve met Naomi…who has done everything to try to gain a boyfriend (or husband) but it never works out… finally she stops trying altogether!
And then she meets Caleb. I like Naomi so much in Naomi’s Gift… and when Caleb and Susie begin to care for her, I cheered!

If you’re like me, you expect this story to have a happy ending – after all, it’s about Christmas! I won’t spoil it for you, but there are a few twists and turns!

An Unexpected Joy by Ruth Reid

WOW! I picked up this story and COULD NOT put it down! Abby and Micah continually rub each other the wrong way. I loved it!

Abigail is certain she’s not destined for love or marriage. She has an idea that she can gain some independence at least and make some sort of happiness for herself with her own horse.

Like every other guy in the district, Micah has no patience for Abigail’s endless babbling… I could say more, but I just can’t spoil it for you! Just trust me. Read it!

A Christmas Visitor by Kelly Irvin

Frannie Mast returns to Bee County for Christmas – with some tough decisions ahead of her. And like most Amish stories, her well-meaning, but interfering family do everything they can make sure Frannie makes the right choices – the right decisions (well, what they consider the right decisions).

I’d rather be reading about a cold, snowy Christmas, but this story takes place in the blazing heat of Texas… Frannie would rather be in Missouri, until she gets a visitor…

Now you know I can’t say anymore, but read it… you’re gonna love it!

Read them… Read them all… YOU’LL LOVE THEM!

Experience the joy and wonder of God’s greatest gift: His Son, Jesus. Tweet this!

God bless you!
