Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Better than wrapping ones self in a warm quilt and sitting by the fireside, Amish Christmas at North Star, is the story of an Amish midwife who helped bring four babies into the world one night over 25 years ago . . . Rebekah's babies they are called . . . now all grown and on their own separate paths, these are their stories . . . not perfect cookie-cutter tales, but ones of struggle, heartache, and twists and turns . . . the kind that all of God's children experience . . . along with the redemption, joy and renewal that He, alone offers to us . . . I loved each story, and how the Amish impacted and worked alongside the "English" in their community . . . this book blessed me . . . it will bless you, too . . .
I purchased this book intending to listen to it one story at a time. It didn't happen that way. The stories, although written by different authors, flowed well one into another. Distinct and individual yet holding onto themes of forgiveness and learning to accept grace and mercy. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it at all times of the year not just Christmas!
I really enjoyed this book with the multiple Chistmas stories. Normally I am not a fan of Amish stories, but this was an excellent exception!!
inspiring, delightful, fun
Sam because he was selfless and kind.
El. She did a great job with her!
Find out how God worked in the lives four babies delivered one Christmas night.
It was a great book-one I can listen to over and over.
