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.
