An Amish Christmas at the Apple Blossom Inn by Tracy Fredrychowski & Debra Torres

 An Amish Christmas at the Apple Blossom Inn
Book Summary

Two sisters. Two stories. One great Amish Christmas read.

Orphaned just weeks before Christmas, the Beiler sisters suddenly discover they could lose their home and what’s worse—each other. To make ends meet, sisters Sadie and Katie are plunged into working at Willow Spring's Apple Blossom Inn.

But will their efforts be enough?

Sadie -Struggling with pride, Sadie yearns to bake scrumptious treats in the inn’s kitchen instead of cleaning floors and toilets. But when she makes the mistake of her life, can Sadie and the inn’s handsome maintenance worker Jubal King create a plan to help save her family and maybe even the Apple Blossom Inn?

Katie – On the cusp of a family tragedy, Katie must put her trust in the Lord and step into a mostly English world. When Jeremiah Hershberger returns to Willow Springs looking for answers, Katie sets out on a journey to help him discover secrets of his past.

Can these young women find a way to bring the joy of Christmas back to their family and to Willow Springs?

My Thoughts

An Amish Christmas at the Apple Blossom Inn by Tracy Fredrychowski and Debra Torres contains two sweet stories.  The Beiler sisters have just lost their mother who was their last remaining parent.  Amanda, the eldest sister, must now stay home to take care of the home and the younger siblings.  It has been decided that Sadie and Katie will split their sister’s former job at the Apple Blossom Inn.  Their salary will help pay for the mortgage on the house. We get to see the period following the mother’s funeral from Sadie and Katie’s point of view.   I found both stories to be easy to read.  I liked meeting the Beiler sisters.  The stories focus on the Apple Blossom Inn, faith, a touch of romance, and Christmas.  Thanks to her best friend Sadie faith is deepening plus she is getting a better understanding of the scriptures.  Sadie is learning the power of prayer and giving her worries to God.  

Katie’s faith is strong.  She knows that God will direct her where she should go.  Katie has learned the importance of slowing down and allowing for quiet so she can hear God’s voice.  I enjoyed the beautiful descriptions of the Apple Blossom Inn decorated for Christmas.  Jeremiah’s story was especially touching.  I like how it turned out plus we get to learn the reason behind Mrs. Sorenson’s attitude (the owner of the Apple Blossom Inn).  Miracles do happen at Christmas as we see in Katie’s story.  With faith, family, and love we see that anything is possible.  An Amish Christmas at the Apple Blossom Inn contains two heartwarming tales with distressed sisters, a bitter boss, a recipe catastrophe, a special keepsake, a nagging neighbor, and God’s guidance.
