review: amish christmas at north star by katie ganshert, et al

As the subtitle states, Amish Christmas at North Star is four stories of love and family. Each of the four stories is written by a different author with one of those authors also writing a prologue and epilogue to bring the four separate stories together. It all begins with four babies being born in an Amish community near North Star, PA. As adults, all but one no longer live there, but all end up being drawn home in these touching stories.

Despite each story being written by a different author, Amish Christmas at North Star has a very cohesive feeling. The themes of love, misunderstandings, and forgiveness tie the four stories together well. I found the first story written by Katie Ganshert to be the most interesting as it centers on the baby who was adopted by an Englischer family. Not only was the plot of that story amazing, the premise also created the opportunity to explain some of the Amish way of life for any readers unfamiliar with the religion and culture. Overall, this collection is excellent with all four stories providing plenty of well-written drama and, of course, romance.
5/5
