Book Review: An Amish Christmas by Cynthia Keller

Meg had the food prepared, the tables set, the beverages cooled-she was ready to serve Thanksgiving to about eighteen neighbors.  Then her husband, James, told her their lives were about to change drastically.  Next step was to tell their three children that they had two weeks to attend private school and pack what they could fit into the Mustang.  Everything was gone.  On the way to New York from Charlotte they took a side trip in Pennsylvania.   The rest of the story is about the new experiences they had and the people they met in Amish country.  David, Catherine, their nine children, grandchildren and others in their community help Meg and her family during this major transition period in a new life.  This is the best "Amish" story I have read with plenty of surprises, twists and turns that were just right. ~Beth Hutcheson, Reference Librarian
