An Amish Noel

GIVEAWAY

DAVIDS, PATRICIA
AN AMISH NOEL

An Amish Homecoming

Luke Bowman's homecoming is turning Emma Swartzentruber's carefully ordered world upside down. Gone is her rebellious girlhood crush, and in his place is a handsome man who seems committed to serving the community. Luke's even agreed to work for Emma's ill father, whose last wish is to see his daughter wedded to a stable, loving man. But Luke - a man who flirted with the outside world with disastrous consequences - is hardly marriage material for a good Amish woman. Yet this Christmas, when her family is flung into crisis, Emma finds that he may just be the one to capture her heart for good.


My Review:

I love the rich depth in the stories Patricia Davids delivers and this one has a unique hook that reeled me in.  Luke's past plays a huge role in his present and has the potential to jeopardize his future...if he lets it. He has to learn to believe in himself so he can have the confidence to put the past behind him for good. While Emma strives to live the same important Amish principle of forgiveness, she finds forgetting is much harder. And sometimes a knee-jerk reaction to judge can interfere with all her good intentions. Davids really knows how to draw her readers in with a complex plot with enough twists and turns to keep things interesting. Throw in some lovely Amish Christmas traditions and you get a heartwarming holiday read.
