Celebrate Christmas with four Amish romances.
A Choice To Forgive by Beth Wiseman: After Daniel disappeared that long-ago Christmas Eve, Lydia built a life with his brother. But now she’s a widow and Daniel has reappeared, asking for forgiveness. Can she go back to her normal life with her long-lost love as her neighbor?
A Miracle for Miriam by Kathleen Fuller: Seth is no longer the arrogant young man who shattered Miriam’s confidence and broke her heart. Will he be able to show “plain” Miriam that she is truly beautiful to him?
One Child by Barbara Cameron: The birth of one child forever changed the world two thousand years ago. On a snowy Christmas night in Lancaster County, another child changes the world for two very different couples.
Christmas Cradles by Kelly Long: When Anna Stolis takes over for her aunt, the local midwife, Christmas night heats up with multiple deliveries, three strangers’ quilts, and unexpected help from the handsome and brooding Asa Lapp.

I listened to this book via a download from http://audible.com. My favorite novella was Kelly Long's Christmas Cradles. I also enjoyed Beth Wiseman's A Choice to Forgive. However the other two novellas were thin on characterization and story line and I was quite disappointed in the listen.
The narrator was mediocre at best and mispronounced many words. The ratings on audible.com are low (3's) because of the two novellas that were lacking and because of the poor narration. However, two of the stories were strong. Kelly Long's novella was definitely worth reading on its own. A strong character, an Amish midwife, Anna Stollis, falls for an equally strong handsome and capable young man, Asa Mast, as they go about delivering babies one stormy Christmas night. The hero and heroine are in their late twenties.
Kelly Marie Long is one of my new favorite authors. She really knows how to craft believable characters and her romances are the best around. Grab this book and curl up by the fire for a great read as Anna and Asa bring new life into the world while beginning their own lives together!
good but not best
All the authors were good except the last one, after listening & reading really good writers of Amish literature you just expect more, realistic, true to life writings.
She was good, and this was my first listen of her I think.
Come live with the Amish
Gave it 4 stars because the first 3 books were really good in the collections, the last one was really lacking, had to trudge through it all the time thinking it would be better. The first one are defiantly worth listening to.
Very disappointed in this "Christmas" Book. I listened to 6 plus chapters and no Christmas in sight. Why this is called a Christmas book I am not sure. It was a disappointment and a waste of my credit. Stories d r a g g e d. I am yet to listen to the last book on the audio so can't comment on that one. I definitely wouldn't buy it again and would not recommend it to friends.
