An Amish Family Christmas | Shelley Shepard Gray


Today I am posting my review of An Amish Family Christmas  by Shelley Shepard Gray.

Here is a brief synopsis:

An unlikely Amish romance reveals that Christmas is a time for family, miracles—and love.

Ever since his father died in a tragic fire, Levi Kinsinger has felt adrift. Newly returned to Charm, Ohio, Levi is trying to fit into his old life, only to discover he seems to have outgrown it.

But when Julia, his young widowed neighbor, asks for his help with a Christmas project, Levi finds a sense of purpose for the first time in months. She and her daughter are new to Charm and could use a friend, a job Levi takes personally.

Soon enough, friendship grows into attraction, but Levi can’t help having doubts. There’s something about Julia that doesn’t ring quite true…

Like Levi, Julia Kemps has survived her fair share of hardships—but only by hiding the truth of her past. Being an unmarried mother in an Amish community was unthinkable.

Feeling hopeless, Julia did the only thing she could do: she moved to a new town and pretended to be a widow. But meeting Levi, she’s hopeful for the first time. Little by little, she begins to imagine telling him her darkest secret, and eventually…perhaps even sharing her life with him.

Christmas is a time for family, and as the holiday draws closer, Julia and Levi will have to face their pasts together…in order to find the healing, support and love they so desperately desire.



I have been a faithful reader of all books from Shelley Shepard Gray for many years . . . and The Charmed Amish Life series doesn’t disappoint in the least. It’s a wonderful series, and, although I’m supposed to be reviewing An Amish Family Christmas, I can’t help but include the other books in the series!

This story is about Luke, the brother who left home after the fire. Now he’s back — and when he helps out his young, widowed neighbor, just maybe he’ll have a reason to stay!

Great characters! Great stories! This is an amazing series that I encourage you to read. I just know you’ll enjoy them as much as I have.

Happy Reading!


God Bless You!
