I love Christmas. Not just Christmas day, you guys. I love the whole Christmas season. I love that we celebrate King Jesus. I love the wonder, the peace, the lights, the music, the baking, the cold, the hot chocolate and fuzzy sweaters. Christmas is my comfort food. Therefore, the very subtle hint of Autumn in the air made me want to cozy up with this book oh-so-much. And it did not disappoint.
“A star shone up above…a bright beacon in the night. It was officially December first. Advent had begun. Christmas was on the way.
Rebekah wrapped a shawl around her shoulders and smiled, her thoughts turning to another baby, born to a virgin millennium ago and laid in a manger while angels sang to the shepherds on a hilltop. Light had come into the world at last, and the darkness would not overcome it.
Closing her eyes, she prayed over each child in her home. Three precious baby girls and one handsome baby boy. She prayed that no matter where they went or who they became, each one would grow up to know this light all the days of their lives.”
Now, I am a sucker for Christian Amish fiction. I completely admit it. But this book is so much more than that. It is such an easy read, and I love the story line. The characters have depth and are relatable. The beauty of Christmas is woven perfectly throughout. And above all, the faithfulness of our Heavenly Father is perfectly portrayed. He knows each of us in such an amazing, personal way.
Bottom Line: Get a copy for you, a copy for a friend, and enjoy!
