Did I enjoy this book: I love Amish fiction. It has been quite a long time since I have read an Amish fiction book. I wanted an uplifting, happy, heartwarming Christmas book and that is what I got. A Lancaster County Christmas delivered a great story of hope, happiness, and perseverance.
I really enjoy the stories where the Amish learn from the English and the English learn from the Amish. Both have great lessons. Both have value. Both need each other in some circumstances. The main circumstance in this book had me on the edge of my seat. I kept hoping for a good outcome. I kept praying that it would end right. Both of the women in A Lancaster County Christmas were missing something and looking for peace and direction. Their journey is worth the read.
Would I recommend it: If you are an Amish fiction fan, and you like heartwarming Christmas stories, you should check this one out.
About the book – from Goodreads: Jaime and C. J. Fitzpatrick began their married life as most couples do–in love and looking forward to a bright future together. But four years later they’ve drifted apart and are almost ready to call it quits.
Mattie Riehl was hoping to give her husband Sol the Christmas gift they have both longed for–news that a baby was on the way. But as usual, she is disappointed. The holidays bring an acute awareness to Mattie that her dream of a big family isn’t likely to become a reality.
Then a winter storm raging outside blows the Fitzpatricks into the Riehl home–and into a much slower pace of life. Can these two couples from different worlds help each other understand the true meaning of love this Christmas?
With her trademark plot twists and attention to detail, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers readers a beautiful Christmas story of love, forgiveness, and what truly matters in life.
