An Amish Christmas Kitchen: Three Novellas Celebrating the Warmth of the Season 

by Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler, and Kate Lloyd

As the weather grows cold and the nights grow long, the cheer and warmth of the Christmas season is one thing all readers can find comfort in. This collection from bestselling Amish fiction novelists Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler, and Kate Lloyd finds the beating heart at the center of the holiday and offers three novellas that celebrate family, faith, and especially the sights and smells of a bustling holiday kitchen. 

Leslie Gould tells the story of how, in the wake of a heartbreaking loss, a young Amish woman finds unexpected comfort and hope in a yearly baking tradition surrounding the local Lancaster Christmas market. Jan Drexler offers a sweet tale of a shy Amish woman who decides to use her gift for sweets to woo a local Amish boy with her beloved Christmas cookies. And Kate Lloyd offers a heartwarming tale of a woman's unexpected discovery about the truth of her past, and the warm and welcoming Amish family table she finds herself invited to on Christmas.

My thoughts:

I fell in love with all three of these novels.  So beautifully written about the Amish lifestyle, they take you right in to their homes.  Each book was unique  and I couldn't wait till I was able to read the next one!  

I laughed, cried, and rejoiced in the happiness of the Christmas  season.  Although this was a Christmas book I had no problem reading it in the middle of August.  

All three women struggle  with finding the love of their life and are convinced they need to find their future husbands soon. I  loved reading about their hopes and dreams.  At times I was very concerned they would fall for the wrong one!  All of them were very hard working and I could almost smell the baking of cookies and cakes (some of the recipes are included).   I would love to have all their energy!

These novellas will warm your heart.  A great great Amish read!
