About the Book:

Andy Danner left North Star to work in construction in a new Amish settlement in Louisiana. His little brother devises a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas, and unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in an old widower’s life.

My Review:
 It's good to read a novella because you get a chance to sample several different authors and find a favorite or two. I love Christmas fiction, it really gets you into the holiday spirit and Amish Christmas at North Star is no different. Each of the four authors collaborated on this and it all centers around one person with which all the main characters have a connection. Rebekah has been a midwife for over twenty years so she has a wealth of experience as we will soon see.

 A good mix of love, lost love, mystery, and intrigue! Each character and their story line will leave you reeling. Perfect book to get cozy by the fire on a blustery fall day. Loved each and every story. This book is definitely a keeper!
