“Crank down the A/C, make yourself a cup of hot cocoa,
curl up in your favorite chair, and start reading!
,will take you away A Lancaster County Christmas
to Amish farm house, blanketed in snow.
Inside the farmhouse, via a chance meeting,
the broken hearts of two very different women,
will mend and grown strong.”
“Suzanne Woods Fisher, has done it again.
She has written a book so simple, yet touching…
that you come to the realization
that the most wonderful miracles in life,
are not spectacular, and seem by the masses.
No, they are the small ones,
that can’t be seen at all…
they are the miracles of the heart!” (I was given a free copy for review purposes.)
From the Publisher:
Jaime and C. J. Fitzpatrick began their married life
as most couples do–in love and looking forward to a bright future together.
But four years later they’ve drifted apart and are almost ready to call it quits.
Mattie Riehl was hoping to give her husband Sol the Christmas gift
they have both longed for–news that a baby was on the way.
But as usual, she is disappointed.
The holidays bring an acute awareness to Mattie
that her dream of a big family isn’t likely to become a reality.
Then a winter storm raging outside blows the Fitzpatricks into the Riehl home–
and into a much slower pace of life.
Can these two couples from different worlds help each other understand
the true meaning of love this Christmas?
With her trademark plot twists and attention to detail,
Suzanne Woods Fisher offers readers a beautiful Christmas story of love,
forgiveness, and what truly matters in life.
Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather,
W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain.
She has many, many Plain relatives living in Franklin County, Pennsylvania,
and travels back to Pennsylvania,
as well as to Ohio, a couple of times each year for research.
Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people
and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world.
In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme:
You don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles–
simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature,
forgiving others more readily– into your life.
When Suzanne isn’t writing or bragging to her friends about
her first new grandbaby (!),
she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
To Suzanne’s way of thinking, you just can’t take life too seriously
when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone’s underwear in its mouth.
