From the Book’s Back Cover:
A charming novella collection of sweet holiday stories, each celebrating love in all its forms, from four of your favorite Amish authors!

Winter Kisses by Beth Wiseman
Three generations of Stolzfus women are living under the same roof. At twenty-five, Naomi has never been married, and both her mother, Barbara, and her grandmother, Ruth, are widows. Each woman is nursing a broken or lonely heart until three men rent the daadi haus for a month, and the women find themselves with potential suitors. Secrets are revealed and hearts are opened, but will all the women find love?

The Christmas Cat by Amy Clipston
Emma Bontrager is spending her first Christmas alone after her husband of 45 years, Henry, passed away in July. Although the Amish don’t normally allow animals in their homes, a big, fat, orange barn cat keep coming into Emma’s house. She shoos the cat away, but it continues to appear in her house, settling on Henry’s favorite wingchair. But the cat isn’t the only Christmas visitor: a group of young people help bring the Christmas spirit to Emma, reminding her that love and hope abide.

Snow Angels by Kelly Irvin
As a young man enjoying his rumspringa, David Byler gave his heart to an Englisch girl, but he eventually realized he couldn’t give up his Plain faith and family for her, so he let her go. He’s found a new love in his Bee County Plain community, Molly Shrock. Molly has been patient, waiting for the man she loves to love her back. Just as he is ready to propose, David makes a startling discovery: Bobbie McGregor, his Englisch love, is back. Will Molly’s prayers for a Christmas love be answered?

Home for Christmas by Ruth Reid
When a misdirected GPS send Ellie Whetstone to the wrong address, she inadvertently finds herself breaking into the home of Amish man, Ezra Mast. Ellie hopes to fix up the house left by her aenti and sell it quickly, but a series of run-ins with Ezra and his young daughter have her questioning whether a hasty sale is the right move. Could this new place with its slower pace be the right home for Ellie?

From Jo:
A great collection of Amish authors to get you in the Christmas mood. All four novellas in this anthology are refreshing as they show the simplicity in the celebration of Christmas in Amish communities. This book brings the reader stories of romance, friendship, family relationships, and hope for the Christmas season.
