I thoroughly enjoyed the first story in this book. The second one was kind of awkward to me and the third one did not keep my interest. Overall, it’s a pretty good book. Everything is romantically clean and sweet as always.

This is a collection of three Christmas novellas by three talented Amish authors. Each story is different, inspiring, and beautiful. A common thread of love is sewn throughout all three of these Christian tales. This is a nice way to sample different authors styles of writing. I enjoyed all three of them. It would make a great gift for the holidays. I highly recommend it and give it a 5 star rating. A copy was provided by Net Galley but these are my honest words.

Lovely stories about love and Christmas! My favorite was the final story about a married couple seeking God's will and the final leap of faith. Must read!

Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for granting me an advance copy of this book full of a beautiful collection of Amish themed Christmas stories in return for my honest opinion.

Everyone if the stories in this book is beautifully written by some of my favorite Amish writers (Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, and Rosalind Lauer).

Each one has been written with a different Christmas story with the theme of being able to come home for Christmas.

I felt blessed by each one and plan to reread this collection again closer to Christmas.

After awhile, they discover this trip is God’s plan for them to discover one another.

STAR OF WONDER by Charlotte Hubbard is another adventure at Promise Lodge.

Lizzie Zehr Is working at the bulk story in Promise Lodge when Raymond Overholt comes to Promise Lodge, hoping to sell the barnboard signs featuring a Christmas star.

This is a truly delightful book of three holiday stories by three of my favorite Amish book authors. The emphasis of love of God, love of family and the beauty of the holiday season gives the reader a delightful combination that will bring enjoyment to your holiday reading. You will not want to miss this book. I highly recommend it.

I received a copy of this book from Kensington and NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.

This book is made up of 3 novellas written by some amazing authors. Cozy stories to enjoy and cool off with when the temperatures are in the 100’s outside or you are in the mood for a Christmas story.

I was given a copy of this complimentary book from NetGalley and the publisher for my honest opinion and review.
