An Amish Christmas Gift by Ruth Reid, Amy Clipson, and Kelly Irvin ~ Review

An Amish Christmas Gift: Three Amish NovellasMy Review:

Three couples come together around the Christmas season, taking chances, and opening their hearts.

Naomi King thinks that love has past her by, having already been in two serious, but failed courtships, she has accepted her fate as a spinster. But when Susie, a young girl comes into her life, along with her widowed father, Naomi is hesitant to make anything of it, but as her friendship with Susie and Caleb grows, so does her hope.

Abby believes that marriage has passed her by, and has decided that she wants to be more independent and buy herself a horse. So after the store where she sells baked goods tells her that they no longer will sell her cookies, she is pleased to hear that Micah Zook is looking for a caretaker for his grandmother, while he fills a big order for wedding centerpieces. Will Micah get past his annoyance with Abby to see her for who she truly is?

Frannie was sent by her parents to Bee County, Texas, to get her away from Rocky, the Englischer that she had been seeing back home in Missouri. Now her Aunt and Uncle are determined to find her a match, but when Rocky shows up on her doorstep, everything becomes more complicated. Do Frannie and Rocky have a chance despite their different cultures?

All well done and well told stories about Amish love at Christmastime, I think my favorite though was the first one, I just thought that Susie was so cute! I loved how quickly she and Naomi bonded with each other, and how sensitive Naomi was in regards to the situation.

Abby was a smart, and kind-hearted heroine, quick to help others out when she saw a need. And I really liked how she challenged Micah and brought him out a little bit more, than how he would typically keep to himself more.

Rocky was a really nice guy, and he adapted well to the challenges before him, even though he had grown up around the Amish, living among them must have been tough, but he really dedicated himself to it.

Overall, this was great collection with many great Christmas themed stories set among the Amish.
