An Amish Christmas Quilt by Charlotte Hubbard, Kelly Long, and Jennifer Beckstrand Review

I was sent a copy of An Amish Christmas Quilt by Charlotte Hubbard, Kelly Long, and Jennifer Beckstrand at no cost for the purpose of review. I actually had 2 books that were written with an Amish theme, but this one was Christmas themed so I decided that it was a great time to read it. I wasn’t familiar with any of the authors but I read a lot of new authors so that was okay.

The first story , A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant by Charlotte Hubbard, begins with Mary Kauffman driving her wagon to a new town with her 2 children from her late husband, when she goes into labor. She is helped by one of the townsmen from the new town, Seth Brenneman, who happens by and sees that she is in trouble. What ensues is a delightful story of a woman thrust into a situation she never dreamed of and her ability to rise to the occasion and go beyond.

The second story, A Christmas On Ice Mountain by Kelly Long, is a tale of a feud that’s lasted so long that the two men feuding can hardly remember it never being that way. Nevertheless, it’s still in place and not only does it affect Luke Lapp and John Beider, but gets in the way of two young lovers, Matthew Beider and Laurel Lapp. Is their love strong enough to withstand the hatred their fathers have for each other?

The final story, A Perfect Amish Christmas by Jennifer Beckstrand, is the perfect illustration of how we can get so caught up in the details that we fail to see the bigger picture. Dottie Shrock is anxious to give her mother the perfect Christmas, from having a party for her to making all of the special foods and activities to make it a perfect Christmas. But in her haste to make everything perfect, she forgets what’s most important. Can Gideon, the handsome grandson of her relative, remind her what’s important in life?
