Today I am posting my review of Christmas at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard.
Here is a brief synopsis:
As the year draws to a close, the brand-new colony of Promise Lodge is thriving, a welcoming community that offers three Amish sisters a fresh start. And as Christmas approaches, gifts big and small are given with love . . .
As Promise Lodge’s first wedding arrives, the evidence of a community building a foundation for the future is a cause for celebration. But the bishop’s narrow-minded wedding sermon doesn’t sit well with the Bender sisters, the town’s courageous founders, especially widowed Mattie Schwartz.
She believes marriage and family aren’t the most important of God’s gifts—even if she suspects her tender feelings for Preacher Amos Troyer run deeper than simple friendship.
Amos hasn’t given up hope that stubborn, spirited Mattie will change her mind about taking another husband, but when an accident threatens to change the course of his life forever, he wonders if the Lord has sent him a message. He’ll need faith, hope, and charity to find the right path—and a Christmas blessing to convince Mattie to walk it with him.
My heart went out to Mattie, Rosetta, Christine, and Deborah — as well as the others who moved to Promise Lodge.
Mattie, Rosetta, and Christine are the Bender sisters — sisters who are determined to have a fresh start in a new community. And they’re expecting more families to relocate with them. Will they meet the right sort of families — or will trouble follow them?
Well, I have to admit, there are some moments when I caught myself holding my breath! But never for a moment, did I stop reading — until I reached the end.
Charlotte has created a wonderful new community in Promise Lodge, with fascinating characters and intriguing possibilities in this new series.
