Rebecca's Christmas Gift (Hannah's Daughters #7) by Emma Miller

Housekeeper For The Holidays

During the Christmas season, Rebecca Yoder agrees to help new preacher Caleb Wittner with his mischievous daughter. Amelia's turned the community of Seven Poplars upside down. Only Rebecca can see the pain hidden beneath the little girl's antics—and her father's brusque manner. After losing his wife in a fire, Caleb's physical scars may be healing, but his emotions have not. Yet Rebecca's sweet manner soon has him smiling and laughing with his daughter—and his pretty housekeeper. Soon Caleb must decide whether to invite Rebecca into his life—or lose her forever.

Hannah's Daughters: Seeking love, family and faith in Amish country.

About The Author

Emma Miller is a wife, mother and a grandmother who lives a quiet life in Delaware. She's the author of the Hannah's Daughter's series and is at work on her next Amish romance novel.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this Amish read. The community is there for one another, and the help continues until things are better!
We have Rebecca with an attraction to the new Preacher, Caleb Wittner. He is a times rude to her, hiding his feelings, or trying to deal with them. He is new to the community and God has chosen him to be the new Preacher. Wow, what a new life he has walked into. He lost his wife in a fire, where he carries the burden of not being able to save her. He was also was disfigured in the fire. Now he is living in a new community in a new state.
Love how the author showed that some people had problems with his looks, rather that looking at his heart. They also judged his young daughter who was struggling with the loss of her Mother. Where Rebecca and a few others helped her with praise and distraction, others thought corporal punishment was what was needed...ugh!
Wrap yourself in this quick, but good read. I loved it!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Published Harlequin, and was not required to give a positive review.
