Three years ago, the man Anna Zook hoped to marry left her and their Amish community for the English world. Now devoted to proving her abilities as a midwife, Anna has given up on marriage and children for herself. But when Benjamin Miller returns, now a changed man, can delivering a Christmas baby reunite these two hurting hearts?
My thoughts: THE MIDWIFE'S CHRISTMAS SURPRISE is a really sweet story. Anna is shy, insecure, and sweet, but struggling to be accepted as a midwife after she finished her apprenticeship. Ben left the Amish, but now he's back, but it seems he lost everything, including the girl he loved. Both Anna and Ben are out to prove themselves, but they do it in a gentle way. This story was a pleasure to read. Enjoyed this quiet escape to a snowy Amish landscape.
A Christmas to Remember by Jo Ann Brown
When a little girl leads shop owner Amos Stoltzfus to an Amish woman in distress, he rushes them to his family's farm. "Linda" has no memory and doesn't know if the sweet child is her daughter or even her kin. As Christmas arrives and Linda's identity is revealed, will Amos be able to claim his holiday guests as his own?
My thoughts: Amos is a kind, considerate Amish man, still living at home with his parents, but running a store. When a little girl steals bread from him, he gives her peanut butter, too, but then gives chase after her and lashes into the woman she's with. Except she is rather clueless, having lost her memory for some reason, and doesn't even know who she is or what her name is, or even if the little girl is hers. Amos takes her home to his mom. Sweet, kind of. He gave me mixed emotions and with "Linda" not knowing who she is, there was nothing to make this reader connect with her. Still a good escape to Amish country.
My thoughts on both: A good collection of two Amish romances for readers who can't get enough bonnet fiction.
I was given a copy free from a friend (not the author, publisher, or publicist) and no review is expected.
With the first we are with Amish midwives, partners, in a clinic run at the Miller farm. Anna Zook lives her with Elizabeth Miller and her family and is gradually taking over more and more of the practice. The family is also living with the pain of having one son leave, but Ben shows up and how he is received and tries to put his life together is a big part of this book.
The second is the story of a woman Linda, a young girl, found by Amos Stoltfus, but the woman does not seem to remember anything except where she is now. As this story unravels, we fall in love with the little girl, and try to put ourselves in Linda’s shoes. We also find Amos caring more and move about this family, but what if she has a husband?
Great holiday stories and quick evening reads enjoy!
I received this book through Love Inspired, and was not required to give a positive review
The Midwife's Christmas Surprise touched on lost love and forgiveness, while A Christmas to Remember is about generosity, hospitality and mainly finding love unexpectedly. Both are easy to read and quick romantic stories, but packs in much more than the number of pages it suggests. It's surprising how it delved on some serious issues in such a short amount of time. And that is a testament to the good writing by both authors. I did not find one area that had be questioning nor editorial issue. It was simply an enjoyable read.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
My favorite is the first story which is a reunion between Anna who is training to be a midwife in the Amish community and Ben Miller, the son of the midwife who is Anna’s mentor.
Three years ago, Ben and Anna declared their love and the next morning Ben jumped the fence, leaving the Amish community to travel.
Now he is back and it’s obvious that the years away have been tough on him and he seems to have unfinished business. It’s tough for Anna to trust him again, having opened her heart to him and been rejected. She’s carried that pain in silence as no one else knew. The ending was satisfying.
The second book is an amnesia trope and Amos finds a woman and child wandering around in the winter cold. Linda has been injured and lost her memory and the child is too young to have useful details about their identity and where they come from.
This was a sweet romance with the conflict coming from not knowing whether Linda is free to fall in love. The ending is satisfactory.
