The Amish Christmas Letters by Patricia Davids, Sarah Price, Jennifer Beckstrand






With Christmas around the corner, it’s time for Amish families to include holiday greetings in their circle letters, each writer adding to a growing collection as it travels on to the next. In this delightful trio of stories, three cousins scattered across the country share their blessings—and reveal news of romantic surprises . . .

To win a friendly annual competition, matchmaker Marybeth Martin must bring one more couple together by Christmas. Her only prospect is a man more interested in a nanny than a wife—until his little girl shows him the light. . . . Struggling farmer’s daughter Katie Mae Kauffman discovers that she and a local widower and father of four can harvest more crops—and profits—together than separately. But she’ll have to put pride aside to make room for unexpected love. . . . Corralling an unruly brood of seven is not babysitter Carolyn Yutzy’s first choice for celebrating the season—but the sparks between her and their unsentimental yet irresistible uncle may be a gift neither was counting on . . .

Now, one by one, each resourceful young woman will have a holiday to remember—and to write home about.

About The Authors

Patricia Davids






I was born and raised in Northcentral Kansas. I'm a farmer's daughter, but I now make my home in the city of Wichita. I'm an RN. Neonatal nursing has been the main focus of my career. What can I say? I love babies. I was invited to the highschool graduation of a baby I took care of. Talk about making me feel old!

In June of 2011 I became a widow after my husband of 36 years and 11 months died from multiple brain tumors. It was a very sad time, but thanks to the three f's, my faith, my family and my friends, life is moving forward. I have four brothers, one daughter and two grandchildren who all work at making me feel loved.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, ever since I could read which was at a very, very young age. There is something magical about telling novels that immerse the readers in the characters and the stories. All of my novels, both the Amish romance and the women’s fiction, have pieces of me in them, some more than others. However, all of my novels are written with one major purpose in mind: to take the reader on a journey. A personal journey.

My Review

What a great combination of Amish authors, and loved these novella, just the right length to pull me in, and keep my attention.
With a general theme and relationship between each of these authors tell their own story, and with enjoyable results.
What they have in common is a circle letter, before the phone was affordable families and friends used these, and I remember my Mother-In-Law looking for hers to come from her college friends.
By the time I finished this book I wanted to continue with these now mutual friends, and hope to reconnect with these characters in future books.
Of course, I wondered if Felty Jr with be with us again, miss my Annie Bananie.

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