Today I am reviewing Christmas of Hope by Diane Craver. This is part of the Dreams of Plain Daughters series.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Rachel Weaver decides to visit her husband, Samuel, at his furniture business and take lunch to him. When she arrives at his store with their daughter in her arms, Rachel is surprised to see a beautiful Englisher, Bridget, laughing and talking with him.
Jealousy causes Rachel to consider returning to work part-time at the bakery next to Samuel’s store. She will see Samuel more and can eat lunch with him. Keeping tabs on her handsome husband and baking her famous pies in the Weaver’s Bakery becomes Rachel’s objective.
Other characters from the Dreams of Plain Daughters Series make an appearance in this novella. As it gets closer to Christmas, Rachel’s faith is tested, and she is reminded again how fragile life is.
I love reading Christmas stories…
But Christmas is about to be spoiled when Rachel finds a beautiful English flirting with her husband. Is there more there than she’s seeing? What is her husband keeping from her?
Let me encourage you to read this wonderful story. Once you begin, it’ll be difficult to put down. The love and affection the author gives the characters is apparent — and I found myself wanting to read her other books. (So I’ll probably be posting more reviews here for her books in the future). I don’t want to give away any other spoilers, so if you want to know more, please read the story.
… and Happy Reading!
