A Simple Christmas Wish by Melody Carlson *Review
About the Book:
Rachel Milligan is caring for her seven-year-old niece, Holly, at her home in Chicago when she receives devastating news: Holly's parents have been killed in a plane crash. Because Rachel is Holly's only known relative, she assumes that she will be her beloved niece's guardian. However, custody is awarded to Lydia, a distant aunt who happens to be Amish. Just a week before Christmas, Rachel takes Holly to the Amish community in the hopes of persuading Aunt Lydia to relinquish custody. Instead, Lydia sets out to teach Holly to live according to the Amish way. As family secrets emerge and old wounds are healed, Rachel realizes that she will do whatever it takes to ensure that Holly has the loving family she needs.
Combining an Amish family saga with the anticipation of Christmas cheer and the promise of a budding romance, this newest Christmas story from beloved author Melody Carlson is sure to please
I have been reading a Melody Carlson Christmas novel each year for quite awhile. I always look forward to her latest contribution to the season. She does an excellent job of getting you to think during the holidays, about the true meaning of Christmas!
This book has a lot of elements, themes and relationships making it hard to put down!
Definitely going to be a Christmas book to read each year.
