My Review:
When Christmas Comes Again
Losing a loved one is a pretty rough road and when the holidays strike it is a very difficult place to be. You learn very quickly how much the loss of a husband and father means to to Katherine and her four children with Elias now in Heaven. So many things that God does in this story to warm this family's hearts and some of those things come in the form of a most unlikely person.

Her Christmas Pen Pal
 A surprise twist of fate changes Joy's life to include a friend by accident. Soon she is able to put her broken heart on the shelf and is open to love again in so many different ways. Noah is able to get her through some pretty tough times and as he does a love starts to blossom.

A Gift for Anne Marie
 Anne Marie is in for a shock and to top it all of her family is upended in several different ways that she isn't sure about. She fears so many things but her and Nathaniel's relationship seems to be in jeopardy and she doesn't want that to change or does she?
 

The Christmas Aprons 
 Poor Esther lives a life of solitude because she feels that she isn't accepted by others. But soon everyone shows her through love and friendship just how much the truly do care for her. Ammon and Esther seem to strike up a friendship that has promising results as well. Hopefully, this will be a Christmas she will never forget.

 Christmas is the best time of the year and I absolutely love Christmas fiction. This is a really great sampler from 4 of the best writers of Amish fiction. On those cold, blustery days curl up in front of the fire and read this very warm, loving collection.
