Today I am reviewing Amish Christmas at North Star, a compilation by five authors, including several of my favorites!
Here is a brief synopsis:
One night four lives entered the world by the hands of an Amish midwife, just outside North Star, Pennsylvania.
Rebekah’s babies, as they are called, are now grown adults and in four heartwarming novellas each young person experiences a journey of discovery, love, and the wonder of Christmas.
Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert
Curiosity gets the best of Englisher Chase Wellington when he investigates the twenty-five-year-old disappearance of an Amish baby. When he finds adventurous Elle McAllister in Iowa will his discoveries upend her world?
Mourning Star by Amanda Flower
Eden Hochstetler slips from her parents’ fudge shop to investigate the death of her friend Isaac Yoder. Who is guilty? Isaac’s handsome great nephew Jacob, an angry Englisher, or someone else?
In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall
Kore Detweiler has nursed his broken heart, avoiding North Star after Savilla Beiler suddenly rejected his love. But when he is called to return home, he and Savilla must join forces to keep a family together.
Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark
Andy Danner left North Star to work in construction in a new Amish settlement in Louisiana. His little brother devises a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas, and unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in an old widower’s life.

Four stories of Love & Family
This book is an attention-grabber, in that it begins with a prologue, telling about the birth of the four children born on the same night, in the same birthing center, delivered by the same midwife.
The first story begins nearly twenty-five years later . . . when an inquisitive journalist finds the story, and is determined to discover what happened to the four babies!
Each story, while just a bit different, are bound together by each child’s birth. This is a great collection of stories; one I’m certain you will enjoy.
I was surprised to find an Amish novella written by Katie Ganshert . . . author of The Gifting, a speculative fiction series, and several contemporary romance novels. Although it doesn’t read like novels by my favorite Amish fiction authors, including the other authors in this particular series, Katie did a good job with it. It’s very entertaining.
