Review

"From the gentle glow of Amish Country to the neon lights of New York City, Charity shines in this timeless journey of faith, hope, and love."

Cheryl McKay - Co-author & Screenwriter Never the Bride

"Amish fans are going to love this story. Bright Christmas is much more than typical Amish fiction. It's a story where the characters' hearts are divided, making them question what they truly believe in and why. Several plot twists and a totally unpredictable, but satisfying ending made Bright Christmas  a real page turner. The story takes place during the holiday season but is a fantastic read any time of the year. A story that totally took a different direction which was wonderful."

From the Author

About the History of this Book
 
Long before publishing this first foray into Amish Fiction, I originally wrote this story as a screenplay for a motion picture. A beloved friend who grew up near Amish Country read the first draft of that script way back when. Inspired by the script, she stopped at an Amish yard sale during a visit to her childhood home. There, she purchased an Amish dress, a Sunday apron, a black bonnet, and a white kapp. As a colleague in the entertainment industry, she knew that films can often take many years to get made. Still it was her hope that one day, these tokens of affection for this story would somehow be used in the telling of it.

Years passed. My friend lovingly stored what she had purchased.

While writing the novel based on that original screenplay, I began to think about the cover, and that bonnet and kapp my friend had set aside for me years before. It communicated the simplicity and purity of this story so well. And so it was that my friend came to photograph the bonnet and kapp, along with fresh holly sprigs from her yard. Another dear friend who is a graphic designer helped fashion those photos into what you now see on this book's cover. So, it is with the generosity and love of my friends, and an enduring respect for the Amish, that I present Bright Christmas: An Amish Love Story to you. May it remind us all of the pure gift that is Christmas.

I really enjoyed this book! The author does a great job of taking the reader on a walking tour of the Amish culture through the eyes of a young woman who has only lived in an 'Amish culture.' When she has the opportunity to visit NYC to reconnect with a shunned relative and try to persuade her to return to her home, she unexpectedly discovers new love . This story promises to satisfy anyone who loves stories of forgiveness that require one to examine their worldview.
Another excellent book by Susan Rohrer.

I preface this review by including the word education because once I understood the language of the Amish and was beginning to identify with Charity's feelings and longing - it was so heartfelt I found myself not being able to put the book down. Rarely do I sit and read a book that quickly! While I love the large city for its opportunity for anonymity I now want to experience the life of a much smaller community where people really know one another and feel like everyone is family. The story touched my heart because I am that loner, that aunt in the Big Apple (NYC) and it would be very touching, as this story was, to have someone find me for the purpose of reestablishing a relationship. The title of this book, Bright Christmas, and it's timing are perfect because love, forgiveness and family are essential at any time but especially at Christmas. GREAT STORY!!!

I've read three of Susan's novels and loved each one but this one might be my favorite. The details about the Amish way of life were especially interesting and were presented in such a way to make the later action of the book understandable. The characters are real - at once conflicted and charming - and easy to root for. The story is fun but it's safe and appropriate for all ages. This book would make a wonderful gift for a young woman - or frankly, one of any age! I look forward to giving it to my 16 year-old niece for Christmas.

Nuances! Surprises! Love of the sweetest kind! Beautifully written. Besides being a plain great story, Bright Christmas needs be used for counseling and book groups to bring about understanding in our communities, rural or city. I plan to read ALL of Susan Rohrer's books!

What did I love best about this book? That there were realistic challenges for the characters! People actually had to wrestle with what was the right thing to do, and there weren't any easy solutions. The author didn't go for an unrealistic happy ending, although she leaves you with hope that things will work out for the characters. All in all, a fun read, and I was left wanting to read more by this author.

I found this to be an interesting look at the coming of age story of a young Amish couple;the hard decisions they had to make about living in the Amish world or joining the English.I'd love to read the sequel to this story.

I love Amish romances. I have read many series as well as individual reads from many well known Amish romance authors that I loved. This one is different from the other ones. The plot is a bit different. I really love this story. Charity Bright is a very sweet, kind and loving young woman of the Old Amish order. Daniel Yoder is also of the same order and a good friend of Charity's. He is a very understanding young man. I like Charity's Aunt Hope. She was shunned. Their story is a good one. This is a book that I will read again. It's one I HIGHLY recommend.

This is a wonderful story, besides being a Christmas story, too. I have always been a huge fan of Amish stories, and this book was not a disappointment. It had a completely different viewpoint than any I have ever read, but I certainly enjoyed it.Instead of taking place in the Amish community, most of it takes place in New York. And it is really a love story about two different couples. I would recommend it to everyone that enjoys reading about Amish life. As I said before, it's a wonderful story.
