About this item

A cold night's silent majesty hides a bitter secret

Though she is deeply loved by her parents, the fact that Lydia Brand is adopted has always made her different from her close-knit Amish community. But as Christmas approaches and she begins to search for answers about her biological parents, more questions surface.

Soon it seems that the deaths of two women in her small town may not be coincidences, after all. And her pursuit of the truth has left her only with hints of a dark secretand threats from an unseen adversary.

While she does her best to stave off advances from her parents' preferred suitor, Lydia discovers that her heart truly belongs to the man who's been there all along: her friend Josh Yoder. It's only with his help that Lydia can ensure that the stillness of a winter's night means peaceand not danger.

Excellent CHRISTMAS Amish mystery!

Customer review by RSheep

5.0 stars by RSheep

This is the first Amish mystery I've read by Karen Harper but it definitely won't be the last one. UPON A WINTER'S NIGHT has just the right combination of mystery, love story, and Amish traditions. Reading it right after Thanksgiving was perfect timing too, as this book's time frame is the Christmas season. Lydia has a good life with her parents, but she has always wanted to know about her "birth" parents. She had asked about them when she was younger, but was promptly put off by her adoptive parents. She has avoided further hurting her parents by returning to the subject since her Mom has been grieving the loss of her little brother ever since he ran off and drowned in the pond years earlier. Her Dad had secretly gave her a snow globe that was her "birth" mother's but will tell her nothing further. Her parents are hoping she's decide to allow Gil to court her too. He works in the Amish made furniture store that her dad owns, but her heart is with Josh. She works in the store in the daytime, but volunteers her time helping Josh with his variety of animals that he rents out for Nativity scenes during the Christmas season. When a local woman is found dead in Josh's yard, she is clutching a note that finally sends Lydia in search of her "birth" parents. BUT, someone obviously does not want Lydia to succeed, as threats and fear grip Lydia and those around her. As the mystery proceeded, I was sure one person than another was the culprit. I'm pretty good at choosing the culprit early on in mysteries, but in this book, I was kept guessing right up until the end. The characters were very realistic also, with themes of love and forgiveness evident throughout the story. Thankfully, Karen Harper has already written a number of Amish books that I can now choose to read !! Definitely recommend this for mystery fans who are into bad language or gratuitous violence!
