    The Amish Christmas Letters by Patricia Davids, Sarah Price and Jennifer Beckstrand contains three intertwined Amish stories. Marybeth’s Circle Letter by Patricia Davids takes us to Sugarcreek, Ohio in late November. Marybeth Martin and her cousin, Wilma Martin have a matchmaking contest every year for the last ten years. The loser of the contest must host Great Aunt Ingrid for her annual two week Christmas visit. Marybeth has until Christmas Eve to make a match and win the contest. She has decided to find a wife for newcomer, Josiah Weaver, a widower with a four year old daughter, Simone. Unfortunately, Josiah is only interested in a caregiver for his daughter and not a wife. Will Marybeth win her contest or get a great gift for Christmas? Love Delivered by Sarah Price which takes readers to Shipshewana, Indiana. Katie Mae Kauffman has been caring for her ill father for the last eighteen months, but she cannot handle the farm as well. Nathanial Miller is a widower with four children and is losing his farm to the bank. Bishop Brenneman has come up with the perfect solution. Katie Mae and her father will occupy the Dawdi Haus while Nathanial and his brood move into the farmhouse and work the farm. Katie Mae’s peaceful life is soon full of noise and disruptions, but she notices that her father loves seeing the farm full of life and spending time with Nathanial’s daughter, Becky. The seeds have been sown, but will they blossom into love? Sealed with a Kiss by Jennifer Beckstrand sends readers to Greenwood, Wisconsin. Carolyn Yutzy is currently caring for Abraham and Mary’s large brood of seven children while they manage their popular cookie shop. Amid chaos, Abraham’s brother, Aaron arrives who is quick to criticize Carolyn. The pair need to find a way to work together and help the children who desperately miss their parents. Anna Helmuth is hoping her latest matchmaking efforts will results in a marriage between this unlikely pair. Christmas is a time for miracles. The Amish Christmas Letters contains three heartwarming and entertaining stories. I found them to be well-written and engaging. My favorite story is Sealed with a Kiss by Jennifer Beckstrand. This humorous tale will have you giggling, and Anna’s famous potholders make an appearance. All three stories start out with a circle letter as each cousin updates the others on what is happening in their lives. It is a unique form of communication in this digital age, but a wonderful way to write one letter to multiple people. I am giving The Amish Christmas Letters 4 out of 5 stars. All three stories have romance, humor and holiday charm. Cuddle up in a chair with a warm blanket and read the three uplifting stories The Amish Christmas Letters.

    THE AMISH CHRISTMAS LETTERS

    THE AMISH CHRISTMAS LETTERS consists of 3 wonderful novellas. Each have the common thread of the Amish circle letters written between cousins as a way to updated in each other’s life. MARYBETH’S CIRCLE LETTER-Marybeth sees Josiah Weaver, a widow with a young daughter, as a match to be made. They compromise-free nanny service for three weeks in exchange for going out once with a woman of Marybeth’s choice for the evening. Deal is sealed with a handshake. Are they both going to get more than they bargained for in this deal? Can Marybeth find just the right woman for Josiah or will she be her own competition? Can Josiah welcome another woman into his life or finally see the true woman in front of him? Can farm animals help make a piece of property a farm and heal a little girl’s heart in the process? Can one little girl be the glue that intertwines three hearts into one happy family? Where will Great Aunt Ingrid spend her time in Sugarcreek? LOVE DELIVERED-The story of Katie Mae Kauffman, a young woman who has had her share of hardships - caring for her ailing mother until her death, keeping the farm going, and now caring for her father who suffered a stroke & is confined to a wheelchair unable to communicate In steps Bishop Brenneman with his solution for not only her problems but those of another church member who’s having a hard financial time. Katie & her father are to move into the dawdihause & rent out the main house to Nathanial Miller & his seven children while he does maintenance around the place & works the farm. In his opinion, a win/win for everyone. Katie is devastated, both for the move out of her family home but also because she doesn’t think highly of her neighbor. However, she knows there is no going against the Bishops request. Can Katie Mae and Nathanial get past their preconceived notions of the other and learn about the true person? Will Abraham get the physical therapy he needs when the church says they don’t have the funds at present? Will Becky’s Christmas prayer come true? SEALED WITH A KISS-The story of Carolyn Yutzy goes to Wisconsin for 6 months to be the babysitter for seven children while the parents work trying to establish their new cookie business at Christmas time. Carolyn has the patience of an angel determined to not let the children’s antics get to her. The kids are relentless to get their parent’s attention & rid of the babysitter. Aaron, a confirmed bachelor & the kid’s uncle, thinks Carolyn is the worst choice in the world to be taking care of his little relatives. She thinks he’s Mr. Know It All. Will time & events show the true facts of who Carolyn & Aaron are to each other? Can Carolyn make Aaron laugh, realize that a little dirt never hurt anyone & what he’s missing in his life? Can Carolyn see Aaron through new eyes for the dependable, gentle, caring man he really is? Will a near tragedy bring them even closer together or will a misunderstanding drive them further apart? The 3 authors that contributed to THE AMISH CHRISTMAS LETTERS managed to write 3 completely different stories but at the same time made one story morph into the next so smoothly you didn’t notice it wasn’t all the same writer. I loved learning about circle letters and how they work and loved how they worked into the three novellas. I would highly recommend this Christmas story for any time of the year reading to anyone that loves not only the Amish genre, but loves well written stories with heart.
