Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
From the author of "An Amish Christmas" and "A Plain & Fancy Christmas "comes a heartwarming novel of marriage and family, new beginnings and poignant homecomings--just in time for the holidays.
After her husband, Shep, loses his latest job, Jennie Davis is grateful to be in a car en route to beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Shep has inherited a house from a distant cousin, along with the cousin's long-established bicycle shop. The move gives Jennie, Shep, and their two children a welcome chance for a fresh start.
While Shep dives into his new venture at the bike shop, Jennie carefully restores their broken-down house. She loves being a stay-at-home mom but yearns to find some fulfillment outside of her family--particularly as they struggle financially. On morning walks, she forges a friendship with her Amish neighbor, Mattie Fisher, who opens up about her modest way of life. Mattie's unswerving good character in the face of adversity encourages Jennie to seek practical solutions to her own difficulties. A passing remark by Jennie's son transforms desperation about their finances into inspiration, leading her to embark upon a candy-making enterprise.
Soon, Jennie's newfound purpose collides with Shep's growing stress at work and long-simmering tensions between husband and wife rise to the surface. As the holiday season approaches, their family is challenged as never before--until an unexpected visitor arrives to give Jennie the greatest gift of all.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-11-15)

After Shep Davis loses his job, he moves his family to Lancaster County, where he has inherited a house and a bicycle shop. His wife, Jennie, is a stay-at-home mom, caring for their two teenagers and lovingly restoring their new home. Still, she longs to help out the family financially. When her Amish neighbor encourages her to sell her fabulous homemade candy, Jennie jumps on the suggestion. Soon the candy business is in full swing, but the bike shop isn't doing so well, which causes stress in Jennie's marriage. Then a teenage Amish boy who needs help renews for them the meaning of Christmas.

Verdict: Keller's (A Plain & Fancy Christmas; An Amish Christmas) pleasant, old-fashioned novel is a welcome addition to the growing Amish Christmas stories genre. Recommend it to those who enjoyed Shelley Shepard Gray's Christmas in Sugarcreek or Mary Ellis's Sarah's Christmas Miracle.
