About the book: For the peaceful town of Willow Ridge, November presents an early holiday surprise. Stranded in the snow, 18-year-old Lena Esh and her boyfriend Josiah Witmer need more than a place to stay for the night. Lena defied her strict family and their judgmental beliefs to run away with Josiah and have his baby. But she’s starting to wonder if he can prove as responsible as he is passionate. And she isn’t sure how—or if—they can ever find a place to truly call home.

Expecting their own miracle baby, Miriam and Ben Hooley rally the town to help the young couple, and Lena draws strength from their unexpected support. Though trouble may come calling, in this season of joyous rebirth, a little child will lead them. And two couples will see their dreams of forever family come true . . .

My Comments: I really enjoyed this book. The main themes were changed lives and forgiveness. The group of Amish highlighted in this book seemed so different than most. They loved, protected, and took care of those the Lord sent their way. By acting this way, they were really able to show the love of Christ when needed the most. The story presents times of suspense, times of joy, times of sadness, and all the other elements that a good story possesses. This is the first Amish novel I’ve read for a while, and it was a winner!
