Amish Christmas at North Star by Cindy Woodsmall, Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark, Amanda Flower, and Katie Ganshert
I have to be honest. Amish fiction isn't doesn't usually attract me, but these authors are extraordinary and seeing them together only made me curious and I knew without a doubt this book would be a blessing and that's exactly what is was.
Four stories connected, but all different, Guiding Star, Mourning Star, In the Stars, and Star of Grace, all bringing something special to the heart of the reader. If you are a lover of Amish fiction you will treasure these stories that will grab your heart and give way for you to ponder the God above who is forever in control.
These stories easily flowed, the characters were believable, and the situations realistic. Faith-based stories that brings the reader excited to turn pages and see what's next.
This is a Christmas gem of a read. Snuggle in with your favorite drink and soak up emotions that will only have you doing some heart searching of your own. I loved how these stories began by being connected and then we get to witness their lives as God in moved in unexpected ways.
This book was a gift from WaterBrook Multnomah for sharing my review with you.
