The Christmas Admirer–A Book Review

2 Comments

So a few weeks ago, Laura Hilton was my Friday Friend and she was here talking about her new book Christmas Admirer.

I read the book so wanted to review it for my readers. Keep in mind that Amish fiction is not my favorite genre but I do read it and enjoy it from time to time. So what’s the verdict on The Christmas Admirer?

I LOVED IT! It’s actually one of the best Amish stories I’ve read. Laura Hilton has crafted a wonderful story. I loved the authenticity of the characters along with the plot. One of my biggest complaints about Amish fiction is that it’s not all that realistic. I happen to live in Amish country in Ohio and so I know a little bit about the culture. Laura Hilton kept it real while still creating a great story with a Christmas theme. My only complaint–it ended a little too soon!

Great job, Laura.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

GOD BLESS & GOOD READING!

ANNA’S HEALING:

 

Anna’s Healing is the first book in a brand-new collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.

When a tornado strikes the farms surrounding Cody’s Creek, Anna Schwartz’s life is changed forever. She suffers a spinal cord injury and suddenly finds herself learning to live as a paraplegic.

Three people—Chloe Roberts, Jacob Graber, and Ruth Schwartz—join forces to help Anna through her darkest days. Chloe is an Englischer who writes for the local paper. Jacob has recently arrived in town and stays on as a hired hand at her uncle’s. And Ruth is her grandmother, a woman of deep faith and a compassionate spirit.

Then one morning Anna wakes and finds herself healed. How did it happen? Why did it happen? And what is she to do now? Her life is again turned upside down as the world’s attention is drawn to this young Amish girl who has experienced the unexplainable.

 

Wow, Vannetta! That’s sounds like a great book, not your usual Amish story. I think I’ll put myself in for the book giveaway–just kidding! If you want to be the winner of Anna’s Healing, leave a comment. Be sure to stop back to see if you’re the winner or that I have your email so I can let you know.

UNTIL NEXT TIME…God Bless & Good Reading!
