Annie’s Christmas Wish by Barbara Cameron is the fourth book in the Quilts of Lancaster County series. It is the story of Annie Bontrager and her family as they plan and visit New York City.

Annie’s stepmother brought her home a snow globe of the New York City skyline when she was a small child. This fostered her desire to visit the big city. Annie gets a glimpse of the life of a writer, a job that her step-mother does, and a job that she would also like to have. She has a beau named Aaron Beiler. They have known each other for years and he has finally decided that he wants to pursue a relationship with Annie. Annie’s dilemma is whether she wants to go do an internship in New York City or whether she wants to pursue a relationship and eventual marriage to Aaron.

I must say, I was not as impressed with the story as other readers seemed to be. I found Annie to be a little wishy-washy on making a decision. I know that choosing to leave your family for a profession is a hard thing to do, but an internship isn’t forever and she could go back home. She seemed dead-set on being a writer, but she wasn’t really willing to go for it.

Her portrayal of Amish life and the reactions to the “Big City” seemed pretty accurate. I enjoyed the idea of the book, I just didn’t care for the characters.

Perhaps if I had read the other three books in the series, it would have made a difference, but I somehow don’t think so. I like reading Amish stories, but this one just didn’t appeal to me.

I received Annie's Christmas Wish by Barbara Cameron for free from Abingdon Press and the Early Reader Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

In Annie's Christmas Wish, the reader visualizes the bustling city of New York through a vacationing Amish family's eyes...the diverse shops and restaurants, beautifully lit holiday decor, the Rockefeller Center skating rink, the Empire State Building, and plenty of glistening snow!

Ever since Annie was a child and received a snow globe of New York City from her stepmother, Jenny, she has dreamed of going there. Annie is filled with a vivid imagination and dreams of being a writer like her step-mom and wishes to visit the New York Times building. Jenny is to receive a prestigious award for her writing and the whole family goes with her to New York, accompanied by Annie's boyfriend, Aaron. Awed by the sights and sounds of a magical Christmas in New York, Annie's excitement is marred only by the fact that her father and Aaron are afraid she will stay in the city and no longer be content to live in her Amish community of Paradise. And then Annie receives two tempting offers that could forever change her destiny...which one will she accept?

Barbara Cameron is such a great storyteller that although I have never been to New York, I feel as though I have just visited there! Her descriptive imagery will finely tune all of your five senses and some tough issues such as a homeless, pregnant teenager, and the plight of the homeless in rescue missions were touched on--all with compassion and finesse. I feel as though her portrayal of the Amish was very realistic (although this sect didn't seem to be as strict as some) and her characters very endearing. So put another log on the fire, grab a cup of hot chocolate...and snuggle up with this magical, heartwarming holiday novel! It's Christmas time in the city!

Always, no matter what time of year, enjoy books on Christmas. This was no exception. I hadn't realized there was a fourth book so I was overjoyed. I really enjoyed the first 3 books.

Format: Paperback
I've loved the earlier books in the Quilts of Lancaster County series, so I enjoyed this fourth book, as well. It's like visiting with old friends, but in a new environment. Annie is all grown up, and she's ready to find her life's purpose. New York City at Christmas is magical for Annie and her family, but for Annie, it's a chance to learn more about her stepmother Jenny's life before she became Amish. Annie's father and boyfriend continually question Annie's commitment to their Amish life, and this is understandable, but they both sell Annie short. She appreciates new experiences, but she doesn't feel the need to leave her familiar Amish world. This story has an intriguing mix of Amish and modern Christmas traditions, and the juxtaposition of busy New York City and quiet Amish life adds a fun twist, as well. Annie's Christmas Wish has a lighthearted feel appropriate for the holidays, in contrast with the earlier books in the series, but is just as enjoyable to read.

With thanks to the author for my review copy.

This was a featured selection & recommended by my book club. I have been intrigued with the Amish culture; having lived near Lancaster, Pa. ,for many yrs. I previously have read many trilogies by Beverly Lewis on this topic but decided to try Barbara Cameron's books and I was amazed at how she pulls the reader in almost by the end of the 1st page. I truly enjoyed this book & will continue to seek out her stories . I highly recommend this to all ages of readers!
