The first story in this anthology is by Kelly Long. It's about family and love and being able to forgive someone their past and start a new life. In this case it revolves around family and a younger sibling. It's not easy, especially when your sibling is disabled. Kelly does a great job of making Amish stories relatable to readers.
A Mamm for Christmas by Amy Lillard is by far my favorite story in this book. I always love meddling kids! These three girls are ready to get a new wife for their dad. They had a lot of fun tricks up their sleeves.
An Unexpected Christmas Blessing by Molly Jebber is the last story in this collection and it is about a widow. She is looking for a dad for her kids, and her kids are also looking. This was a fun story and I liked how the characters ended up.
I am giving this collection a 5/5. I guess that Santa brings more than gifts on his sleigh!
Through the snowy night, silver bells ring cheerfully, heralding a season of secret gifts, unexpected chances, and love's sweetest journeys . . .
A SLEIGH RIDE ON ICE MOUNTAIN
For solitary toy-maker Sebastian Christner, hiring Kate Zook as his new housekeeper is simply the right thing to do. Now she can support her special-needs brother. But one taste of her independent spirit is showing him undreamed-of holiday joy—and making him long to give her a home for always . . .
A MAMM FOR CHRISTMAS
Bernice Yoder has far too much to do to entertain holiday dreams. Even if she can help Jess Schmucker outwit his three mischievous young daughters, it's impossible to imagine the handsome widower can see her as anything but a scolding schoolteacher. He never guesses how a magical Christmas Eve will open his eyes to love or how Der Herr will awaken their faith and hope.
AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS BLESSING
As much as Charity Lantz's children need a father, the young widow isn’t sure her new neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. They’re having more disagreements than snowflakes in December. Besides, he's never given a sign he wants to be more than friends. Can Gott show them a way past their misunderstandings to a forever love?
