Publisher's Summary

For the peaceful town of Willow Ridge, November presents an early holiday surprise.

Stranded in the snow, 18-year-old Lena Esh and her boyfriend, Josiah Witmer, need more than a place to stay for the night. Lena defied her strict family and their judgmental beliefs to run away with Josiah and have his baby. But she's starting to wonder if he can prove as responsible as he is passionate, and she isn't sure how - or if - they can ever find a place to truly call home.

Expecting their own miracle baby, Miriam and Ben Hooley rally the town to help the young couple, and Lena draws strength from their unexpected support.

Though trouble may come calling, in this season of joyous rebirth, a little child will lead them. And two couples will see their dreams of forever family come true.

Great Book!!!

Charlotte Hubbard and Susan Boyce will never disappoint. The whole series is hard to put down. I have many Amish audio books and this combo is the absolute best out there today. I would and have recommended this series to friends. Charlotte knows how to write great Amish fiction and Susan Boyce brings each character to life. Amazing combo. Looking forward to more by them.

Could hardly wait...

Loved this! I was disappointed when I thought #5 was the end. Did more checking and discovered a 6th book had just become available at the end of Sept. Loved the whole series!
Looking forward to hearing more from Willow Ridge, in the Simple Gifts series, starting in 2016.

Warm and delightful-Love conquers

This series was probably my favorite series I've enjoyed for quite sometime. Although it is fiction, it is a true meaning of Godly and unconditional love. To God be the Glory!!! May you curl up and relish love, as our Heavenly Father intends for His love to abound!💕 Thank you, Sharon Caldwell

what a wonderful book

I truly loved this book. I am not usually keen on amish books, but this was in my wish list many months. it shows how god works everything out for good even when life seems the darkest and no hope or answers in sight. how folks who know and love god and are willing to work together can accomplish so much. narrator fine. in fact I just called a friend who has good vision and loves to read and she wrote the name of the book down. I do not usually get so jazzed about a book, but this one was more than enjoyable in my opinion. I would highly recommend this book!!!

all of them !!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was truly touched by the love that comes through ... I finished listening to this series while making my Christmas Cookies last year ... and I really hated to see the series come to and end.
