This book contains three heart-warming Christmas stories that are unique and vastly different though all pertain to an Amish community. While at least one of these stories is part of a series, all stand alone and each is complete. (They may all be part of different series. I just don’t know.) From a young widow to a secret romance to a childhood friend that has grown up, each female lead is a strong woman who knows what she wants. The male characters are just as strong, they have to be to take on these women. Combined they are terrific matches. If you love Christmas stories and the magic of the season, these are perfect stories. It’s not all sunshine and light but the reason for Christmas shines through and the love is tangible. I couldn’t put down each story but I did have to take a bit of a break before starting the next due to becoming so wrapped up in the story I just finished. So, sit back and enjoy.
Mary Kauffman married against her father’s wishes and now finds herself a very young widow with a child on the way and two stepchildren. As she tries to figure out her life, she finds herself in labor on an unfamiliar road. Seth Brenneman is busy in his workshop when a strange dog begins to herd him towards the road. He’s shocked to find a young Amish woman in labor and two young children. He steps up to help but doesn’t plan on doing anything more than dropping everyone off. God may have a different plan.
Matthew and Laurel’s fathers use to be best friends until a Christmas misunderstanding made them bitter enemies. Regardless of the feud going on, Matthew and Laurel find love. But, with their father’s hating each other, this isn’t going to be easy.
Dottie wants this Christmas to be perfect and she has everything planned to the smallest detail but when Gideon shows up in town, her plans seem to need to change. Dottie though is going to fight to keep things as she sees them to the bitter end. Can she see everything doesn’t have to be perfect to have a wonderful Christmas?
A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant
Seth Brenneman didn't expect his holiday would include rescuing pregnant young Mary Kauffman and her two children. . .or having unexpected feelings for the still-grieving widow. But when they must play the leads in an impromptu live Nativity pageant to help his Amish community, will their roles reveal their hearts--and work a miracle for a lifetime?
A Christmas On Ice Mountain
Matthew Beider and Laurel Lapp's secret wish to marry is a gift their feuding fathers definitely won't accept.

Can rediscovering the joys and friendships of Christmas past finally turn their families' futures bright?
A Perfect Amish Christmas
Anna and Felty Helmuth's grandson, Gideon, plans to spend Christmas on a beach in sunny Mexico. But Anna is quite sure he'd rather be with them, snowshoeing, ice fishing--falling in love. And she knows the perfect girl. Not only is Dottie Schrock an excellent quilter and baker, she's having a party. There's just one complication--Gideon is not invited. Dottie has her reasons, but Anna trusts that the spirit of Christmas--and true love--will change her mind, and her future . . .
