Title: An Amish Country Christmas
Author: Charlotte Hubbard, Naomi King
Review: I loved the second story in this book. The 1st story was cute about young romance, but the second story was about older romance and had much deeper feelings. This authors writing is enjoyable to read, the stories are sweet and fast paced. I would recommend this authors work to anyone who enjoys stories of families, love, and life.
With Christmas fast approaching this book is a great way to feel the spirit of the season. I do love the fact that even after year and years of life it is possible to still find love that makes you feel like a teenager again.
Buy this book and step into a place of quiet peace and simplicity. Except for no electricity I think living in an Amish community might be a wonderful break from the fast paced life we all lead out here in the world.
Tis the season for love, romance and the spirit of giving.

Why I Read this Title: I enjoy this genre and author
Synopsis: In this charming diptych, King (Naomi Weds a Good Man)—who also writes using the Hubbard pseudonym (Winter of Wishes)—spins sweet tales of innocent love among the Amish in two Missouri hamlets, Cedar Creek and Willow Ridge. The Christmas Visitors is devoted to brothers Bram and Nate Kanagy and the identical twin sisters they fall in love with, Martha and Mary Coblentz. As the brothers woo the sisters, an out-of-towner threatens to dash their hopes. In Kissing the Bishop, Willow Ridge sisters Jerusalem and Nazareth Hooley are snowed in at Tom Hostetler's place with Vernon Gingerich from Cedar Creek. After Tom receives shocking news about his estranged wife, will that open the door for two more couples to find their happy endings? The devoted couples from the first tale also make a cameo in the second. Mouthwatering recipes complete this sweet collection.
Author Information: Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard (a.k.a. Naomi King) writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Seasons of the Heart series. Like her heroine, Miriam Lantz, Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of her earlier Angels of Mercy series. She’s a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she’s not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.
