Book Description

From the bestselling author of A Widow’s Hope and Never Far from Home comes a brand-new Amish novella that will add joy to the Christmas season.

Sarah Beachy has plenty to be joyous about as autumn leaves start to fall. She loves her job at the English bed-and-breakfast where she cooks and refreshes rooms between guests. She has a serious beau, and everyone expects an engagement soon. Why, then, would she jeopardize everything by suddenly deciding to take a trip to Cleveland to track down a brother who left the Order years ago?

Her family’s faith in God is put to the test as the holiest night of the year approaches and Sarah remains far away. Sarah’s mother, Elizabeth, has been missing her son for such a long time…will she lose her daughter to the English world as well? Or will the Beachy family receive an unexpected Christmas miracle?



Editorial Reviews

"I absolutely loved this story!!!...This is one of those stories you've got to read and try making those yummy 'Fastnacht Kuescheles
,' too!"
--Five Star Reviewed Books



"...Mary brings Sarah's Christmas Miracle
to a satisfying conclusion that will remind you to look for miracles in your own life. More than that, this story will remind you that reconciliation is within reach when we extend unconditional love and forgiveness."
--RelzReviewz.blogspot.com

From the Author

"Sarah might be in love, but she's not ready to take that next step. Marriage usually means babies and down that road, heartache waits. Her mother still hasn't gotten over the fact her son left the faith. Maybe a closer look at the English lifestyle isn't such a bad idea..."
--Mary Ellis, author of Sarah's Christmas Miracle

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story, though short for a novel. August 13, 2010
Format:Paperback
This story kept my interest until the end. I am not a huge Amish fiction fan, but if the story is interesting enough it will hold my attention. This story was sweet and had some strong redemption themes. It wasn't much different in plot than most Amish novels, but it was unique enough that I enjoyed it. It was also a fairly short story, less than half the length of most Amish novels, so the story ended quickly but with a satisfying resolution. There was also a great point that one of the characters made. You can make someone love you. They have to do that because they want to and trying to possess them isn't going to make them love you more, but less. The other theme was that a mother's love knows no bounds. Like a prodigal, one of the characters returned and the mother did exactly what that lost and hurting soul needed. She loved unconditionally like mother's usually do. That always brings healing. That was well done and made this book above average. One more note... the main character is 19 and the girl on the cover looks barely twelve, so don't mistake this book for an elementary school aged reader. It's for young teens on up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Story!! December 1, 2010
Format:Paperback
Sarah Beachy works at the Country Pleasures bed and breakfast owned by Mrs. Pratt. Sarah cooks breakfast, washes linens and tidies room six days a week. She loves her job.

Sarah lives on a farm with her parents and two sisters and has a serious boyfriend, Adam Troyer who seriously wants to marry Sarah but she keeps dragging her feet on being baptized and joining the Church so they can announce their engagement.

Sarah is a loving and kind young woman and invites Mrs. Pratt and her husband, Roy, for Thanksgiving dinner at her family's home because neither their son or daughter were going to make it to the Pratt home for this holiday.

Caleb, Sarah's brother had left home at nineteen to join a construction crew headed for Cleveland and had never returned. That was five years ago. Sarah worried that Caleb's absence at both Thanksgiving and Christmas would leave a void in her family's happiness during the joyous season.

Adam Troyer had been dating Sarah for three years and had a good paying job making furniture. A few other men wanted to court Sarah but according to Adam, Sarah was HIS! If Sarah WAS his, then why wasn't he happy and full of gratitude?

Sarah began to question her mother, Elizabeth, about Caleb wondering if she really missed him since he left the family five years ago. Elizabeth became quite upset and told Sarah to change the subject but Sarah kept probing until her mother began to cry. Sarah, being the type of young woman she was, felt terribly bad she had made her mother cry and apologized.

However, unbeknownst to Sarah, those questions she asked her mother about Caleb brought forth a string of memories for Elizabeth and she would never forget Caleb and she'd have: "...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah's Christmas Miracle September 10, 2010
Format:Paperback
Sarah Beachy has much to be thankful for. She has a job she loves at an English bed and breakfast, a beau who is thinking marriage, and a family that loves her. But as she begins to expect that Adam will ask her to marry her, Sarah begins to worry. She has a brother who has left the Amish years ago during his rumspringe and she wants to know why, and the bigger question, will she regret having children?

As Sarah begins to search for answers, she questions her boss who has two children she never sees, and her mother, who mourns for Caleb, years later. When none of them hold the answers, she decides to look for Caleb and find the answers for herself. Will Sarah ultimately decide to leave the Amish behind, or will she return home to a steady man and marriage?

SARAH'S CHRISTMAS MIRACLE is the sweetest story I've read in a long time. I totally loved it. Ms. Ellis is a very talented story teller who not only introduced me to the kitchen of a cozy bed and breakfast (and made me hungry with all the talk of food) to the insides of an Amish farmhouse.

Sarah is a very real heroine, one I couldn't help but fall in love with and sympathize with as she looked for answers. The story also included the point of view of Sarah's mother, Elisabeth, her beau, Adam, and her brother, Caleb, giving each of these a distinct personality, and helping the reader to fall in love with each of them. The ending of the book caused me to reach for a tissue.

Don't miss SARAH'S CHRISTMAS MIRACLE for a holiday story that will stay with you long after you close the pages of the book. Some delicious sounding recipes are included at the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story December 28, 2010
Format:Paperback
Sarah Beachy has a good life, she is nineteen, and has not joined the church yet. And while she has not had the typical rumschpringe, she just has not been ready to commit to the church yet. She knows that joining the church will open the way for her beau, Adam Troyer to ask her to marry him, and while she is fairly positive she loves him, she is unsettled about having a family.
She has questions that she wants answers to. Questions about why her brother Caleb so easily walked away from his Amish home and life, for a life among the Englisch in Cleveland. She wants to know why a child would leave his parents and siblings, she wants to understand that before she has her own family.
Her mamm is not happy about the trip Sarah has decided to take to find Caleb, and neither is Adam, but Sarah is determined to find answers. Will she find the answers she is looking for? Will she find what she is looking for in Cleveland?
I believe this is the first Mary Ellis book I have ever read and I truly enjoyed it. Ms Ellis, truly caught the atmosphere of a young Amish girl looking to find her way. I enjoyed this book very much. 144 pages US $10.99 4 stars.
