An Amish Christmas Star
BUGGIES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES * Shelley Shepard Gray
Called home by family, John Miller and Ellie Coblentz are each looking for a way north from Pinecraft, Florida. With few options, they decide sharing the burden of travel must be the Lord’s plan for them. But can this bumpy, bad-weather journey home help them find their way into each other’s hearts, too?
STAR OF WONDER * Charlotte Hubbard
When Raymond Overholt comes to Promise Lodge, hoping to sell the barnboard signs he’s painted with stars and Christmas messages, spirited young Mennonite Lizzie Zehr is intrigued. But any courtship between them will face fierce opposition from the bishop of Raymond’s Old Order community—unless someone can convince him that at the heart of faith lies love . . .
STARLIGHT EVERLASTING * Rosalind Lauer
Newlyweds Rachel and Luke Coblentz can’t wait to celebrate their first Christmas together after years of courtship. But when Luke’s factory job threatens to keep them apart—from each other and their dream of a family—it will take faith to believe in the gift of a truly joyful ending . . .
An Amish Christmas Star by Shelley Shepard Gray, Charlotte Hubbard, and Rosalind Lauer contains three heartwarming novellas. I enjoyed each one of these charming holiday tales. They are well-written and engaging. They remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. I like stories where there are Christmas miracles. I enjoyed returning to Promise Lodge in Star of Wonder by Charlotte Hubbard. Lizzie was a delightful character. I loved her enthusiasm and her style of dress. Those who have read the Promise Lodge stories will want to see what happens in this novella. I love how the author brought about the Christmas miracle. Buggies, Trains, and Automobiles by Shelley Shepard Gray is a cute story. I laughed several times while reading this one. John and Ellie are trying to get home. Their journey was certainly unique. I like to think that they are truly good people out there who would help people in need.
Starlight Everlasting by Rosalind Lauer is a touching story. I enjoyed the descriptions of the Christmas shop with the picket fence and manager. I like how the faith element was worked into each story. I enjoyed the star theme and how it was presented in each novella. These sweet stories are full of hope, determination, love, and the most important, faith. God will truly show us the right path to take if we let him. An Amish Christmas Star has three touching tales with raucous rock, candy bar repasts, curious clothing, a speedy scooter, a bad-mannered bishop, work woes, sparkling stars, and happily ever afters.
