My Comments: This is a great book by four great authors. I love the way each story intertwines with the other three. The setting of each story is in North Star, Pennsylvania. Within these four stories we have the themes of love, romance, mystery, murder, adventure, and loyalty. I have read books by all of the authors and enjoyed them immensely, as I did this anthology. The characters are the same although different ones are emphasized in each story. I love this type of anthology rather than having four completely different stories with four different sets of characters.
If you enjoy Amish fiction and if you enjoy Holiday books, this is one you would enjoy!
I received a copy of this book free of charge for my honest opinion, which I have given.
