An Amish Christmas

Amish fiction lovers can add another title to their list with An Amish Christmas by Thomas Nelson Publishers. 

This Christmas bestseller now adds a bonus story, Christmas Cradles by Kelly Long.  Though small enough to stuff into a stocking, this little hardback book packs four novellas between its covers and is sure to satisfy fans of Amish fiction. Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Barbara Cameron and Kelly Long collaborate their talents and the result is a wonderful collection of Christmas stories.  A reading group guide is also included in the back of the book along with authentic old order Amish recipes which adds a nice touch.  I really liked the glossary in the front of the book which helps the reader understand the Pennsylvania Dutch used in these stories.   Perfect for gift giving, this sturdy hardback book will please readers who enjoy this type of fiction.

Rich in the culture and traditions of the Amish community, these stories reflect the timeless history of faith, family and God amongst the Amish people.
