About the book: From the pen of bestselling Amish fiction author Jerry Eicher, (more than 350,000 books sold), comes a truly delightful and inspiring Christmas novella.
Fans will be delighted by this peek at an Amish Christmas, complete with the romantic wish of Susanna Byler to spend the holidays with the man of her dreams. But who is the man of her dreams? Is it the competent but plain Amishman she married for convenience….or is it her first love–an Englisha man with whom she has recently had an unexpected encounter–and who wants her back in his life?
A perfect holiday delight for lovers of Amish fiction…and those who love a heartwarming and tender Christmas tale.
About the book: This was the first book I have read by Jerry Eicher and I loved it! I am always leary of a man writing about a female protagonist, but this was well-written. I usually hold off on reading holiday books until at least October, but I wanted to read a short one, and I have been wanting to read a book by Jerry Eicher. This book is a winner! It’s even Christmasy, and on a 100 + degree day, that’s great! Susanna is a very likable character. She makes a very admirable goal to love her husband more and more, even though she kind of hooked up with him on the rebound. For years, she had been with Matthew. They were engaged for a while and she was crazy in love with him. Matthew, however, left the Amish faith and Susanna stayed. She married Herman, who was very different from Matthew. Herman works hard, stays quiet, but feels deeply – great husband material! The story develops sweetly, logically, and not without conflict. Loved this book and recommend it as a great holiday read!
