Naomi's Gift: An Amish Christmas Story | [Amy Clipston]

Naomi's Gift: An Amish Christmas Story

Naomi's Gift re-introduces twenty-four-year-old Naomi King, who has been burned twice by love and has all but given up on marriage and children. As Christmas approaches - a time of family, faith, and hope for many others - Naomi is more certain than ever her life will be spent as an old maid, helping with the family's quilting business and taking care of her eight siblings. Then she meets Caleb, a young widower with a 7-year-old daughter, and her world is once again turned upside-down. Naomi's story of romantic trial and error and youthful insecurities has universal appeal.

Take a trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania, where you'll meet the women of the Kauffman Amish Bakery in Lancaster County. As each woman's story unfolds, you will share in her heartaches, trials, joys, dreams... and secrets. You'll discover how the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle can clash with the 'English' way of life - and the decisions and consequences that follow. Most importantly, you will be encouraged by the hope and faith of these women, and the importance they place on their families.

    Story
    "Delightful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I wouldn't recommend this book to all friends, but I would definitely recommend to my Christian friends that like tender love stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the Amish theme and the cooking and caring of all...the warmth that emanates takes me back to a simpler time when people looked out for others rather than themselves.


    What three words best describe Kimberly Farr’s performance?

    The three words that come to mind are: warm, gentle, convincing. That aside, some good sound effects would have added to the overall experience, like background noise at social gatherings and the clip-clopping of horses hooves when riding in the buggies.


    If you could take any character from Naomi's Gift out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would like to take Suzie so I could hear what's going on in her little head...although she's very outspoken and does reveal her thoughts regularly.


    Any additional comments?

    Like all Amish stories, Naomi' s Gift is warm and inviting and you feel part of the tight-knit community. I love spending Christmas with the Amish family found within the pages of this book.
