When Christmas Comes Again is beautifully written. Faith, courage, and hope are strong themes within this story. I was immediately swept up by the humor, sadness, and love. Beth Wiseman's writing is superb. Readers will never want to leave the fictional world in which she created. Highly entertaining, sweet, and full of Christianity. Overall, I highly recommend the story to all.
Her Christmas Pen Pal by Ruth Reid is another heart-melting tale. A young woman lost her parents in a night due to a cat knocking over the oil lamp that was left lit for her return home. Since then, she has felt nothing but sorrow. Then her love suddenly stops talking to her. He soon gives her a choice. To marry him and give up the baking or continue baking without him. In a world of hurt, anger, and sadness...Joy writes to her cousin about her troubles and includes a book of her peppermint cookies. Except fate has more plans for the sweet Amish lady. Her box of cookies and letter to her cousin arrive, to a stranger instead. The address was blurry to read due to the wet weather. From there, a pen pal relationship begins between a young Amish man and a young Amish woman. Both have been previously hurt by those they loved. Maybe they will finally find their happiness and love in the end...
Ruth Reid has created a warm and vibrant Christian read. Her Christmas Pen Pal is sad, sweet, and beautiful. The characters melt your heart in so many ways. The story swept me off me feet. I liked how both main characters were portrayed so realistically. The Amish world once again has been well-told. I enjoyed reading this book full of life, loss, and love. Overall, I highly recommend this to all.
A Gift for Annie Marie by Kathleen Fuller is the third Amish tale inside this exciting book. I am amazed at how well-written the story was. Told in a way that leaves readers feeling all kinds of emotions. From happy to anger, to sad and eventually loved. A young Amish man and woman grew up as best friends. Nathaniel was and has been in love with his best friend for years. Just didn't realize it until she was about to leave him for good. Anne Marie loves being with Nathaniel. Always looks forward to their game nights on a Sunday. However, fate has plans in store for them both. But to complicate things, Anne Marie's pushy friend, Ruth, wants Anne Marie to get Nathaniel to go out with her. Only Nathaniel already has his heart, soul, and mind only on one woman. Anne Marie. It's obvious to everyone around them that the two best friends were meant to be...except neither one knows it until much later on...a sweet romance that lifts readers' spirits and takes them on an unforgettable journey.
Kathleen Fuller in indeed a talented writer. Her words cause the deepest of emotions, to play across her readers' hearts and minds. I found myself completely lost within her tale. It's addictive. I fell in love with the characters and their journey of growth both as friends and as lovers. Overall, I highly recommend this story to all. A Gift for Anne Marie is a must read.
Christmas Aprons by Tricia Goyer is the last and final Amish romance Christmas story inside this wonderful book. I loved the tale about delicious baking, hard work, friendship and most of all love. Tricia Goyer's characters leave readers blushing and laughing alone. There's plenty of fun and hope to fill readers' minds. I loved following both Ammon and Esther as they found what they were looking for in life. Their trust and faith in the Lord were inspiring. When things go wrong, they pray and hope for guidance, courage, and help. I couldn't help falling in love with the characters and their dilemmas. Super romantic, sweet, and heart melting.
Christian Aprons is a tale about an Amish man being there to help his mom. A mother who recently had a stroke. While helping his mom, he goes to a fundraiser. There he ends up meeting a super shy, smart, and loving woman. Esther. Esther was told to not share her mother's recipe to anyone. In just a short time, she has a met a good Amish man who gives her hope for the future. Both soon grow closer with each passing day. But only the Lord will show them where their paths lay. Can love conquer all? Tricia Goyer's writing is addictive and will keep readers hooked. Overall, I highly recommend it to all.
I love Christmas. I love Amish. And after reading the first Amish Christmas novel, I knew I had to read this one. I was so in love with this book, much like the first! This collaboration of authors and their talented work have once again captured my soul with their characters and story lines.
These stories are unique and follow Amish tradition, and the attention to details are vivid. Each character is different, yet they compliment each other perfectly. The feel of Christmas and romance, and God's amazing word really help the stories to pop.
If you've never read an Amish novel before, I highly recommend that you read this book. These authors will sweep you away into the loving atmosphere of the holidays and carry you on journeys of hope and faith. Well done, ladies!

“When Christmas Comes Again” by Beth Wiseman is somewhat different than the usual Amish novel. The story is a bit mysterious with a bit of humor and a touch of romance. It is also a touching example of family reconciliation and healing that might just bring the reader to tears.
“Her Christmas Pen Pal” by Ruth Reid is also a bit unexpected. A story that begins with an expected engagement gone wrong, a misdirected package and letter, and a correspondence that develops as a result, this novella is thoroughly delightful and entertaining in its entirety.
“A Gift for Anne Marie” by Kathleen Fuller tells the story of lifelong best friends Anne Marie and Nathaniel who are soon to be separated when Anne Marie’s widowed mother remarries and moves the family to another state. Anne Marie cannot imagine her life without Nathaniel and both of them realize possibly too late that their friendship has developed into much more.
“The Christmas Aprons” by Tricia Goyer is another story set in Kootenai, a place Goyer’s readers have come to love. Esther is a shy young woman who has always lived in the shadow of her more outgoing twin and has developed a pretty good case of low self esteem as a result. When her mother finally shares her famous pie recipe for Esther to bake for an auction, the young man who buys her pie discovers just how special Esther is.
All four novellas are quickly read and each is special in its own way. I enjoyed all of them and would find it difficult to choose a favorite. “An Amish Second Christmas” is just the right book for those who love Amish fiction and Christmas novels.
