Grade 8-10. Young romance is difficult at the best of times, but when you're dealing with a life-threatening illness as well as the problems that can arise from a cross-cultural relationship, it can seem downright impossible. Such are the trials facing 16-year-old Leah Lewis-Hall. Left alone right before Christmas (by her mother who has just been married for the fifth time), Leah is admitted to the hospital for treatment of a broken finger. Further tests indicate bone cancer. During her stay, she meets Ethan, a handsome Amish boy, and is drawn to him despite the difficulties she has understanding his culture. Factor in the mysterious nurse Gabriella, who may or may not be an angel, and you have a story that is an interesting blend of romance, mystery, and problem novel. The characters are captivating and sensitively drawn and the plot is fast paced. There are strong religious themes but the author avoids being preachy. A satisfying book that also provides insight into the Amish way of life.?Robyn Ryan Vandenbroek, formerly at Otterville Public School, Ontario

From the Inside Flap
Happy Holidays! Bah humbug. "Happy" is not the way Leah Lewis-Hall would describe herself at the moment. She's spending her twelve days of Christmas in an Indianapolis hospital, while her mother is thousands of miles away on a honeymoon with husband number five. Leah went to the doctor with nothing more
than a broken finger, but he ordered her to undergo some tests. Now she's stuck in the hospital, alone.
Then Leah meets her hospital roommate, a young Amish girl named Rebekah, and her big family. Cynical sixteen-year-old Leah has never known people like this before. From Rebekah's handsome brother, Ethan, who can barely look Leah in the eye, to her kind older sister, Charity, the Amish family captivates Leah with its simple, loving ways. When Leah receives frightening information about her condition, her new friends show her that miracles can happen. And that sometimes angels appear in the most unexpected places. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Longachres' become Leah's second family while she is hospitalized due to the fact that her mother and her mother's fifth husband are on their honeymoon in Japan. Leah falls instantly for the oldest son, Ethan, and he feels the same way for her. They both have to hide the way they fell for each other when his family is around and after little Rebekah leaves and they must write to each other.
I loved this book! It really touched me personally because I know how it is when a family member is in the hospital and how it feels to like someone when the two of you really should not like each other. The book also tells how Leah feels in every situation that she is put in from her diagnosis, which I will not give away, to her feeling for Ethan. Read all three books. They get better and better with each page!
