Review: An Amish Christmas Gift

An Amish Christmas Gift is a good collection of stories perfect to read around Christmas or to just get you in the mood for Christmas. Each of the novellas are quick, easy to read stories for the hectic Christmas season.

Amy Clipston wrote the first story, Naomi's Gift, about Naomi who believed she would never get married since she had been too bold running after guys. Imagine her surprise when someone does become interested in her.

Ruth Reid wrote the best story out of the collection by far. An Unexpected Gift was superbly done, and I was really cheering the main character on! I loved that she wasn't quiet and reserved but instead very talkative. Since she was talkative, nobody wanted to be her beau. Or so she thought.

Kelly Irvin wrote an okay story. A Christmas Story is about a girl in love with an Englischer. When the guy comes to visit her, she is conflicted. I wasn't that into this story. It was okay but could have been much better.

I didn't really enjoy the first novella; I found it kind of boring. But the second book was great! It kept my interest the whole way through, and I loved such a unique main character. I wasn't surprised the story was such a fun, in depth read because it was written by Ruth Reid. She writes such real stories instead of just some fluff. The third novella wasn't that intriguing to me, but it was better than the first story. Usually these Amish sets are pretty good, but this time it wasn't. For that reason I'm only giving it 3 stars.

I was given this book free from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
