First Christmas on Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand


 

She can’t cook, sew, sing, or clean. And no matter how hard young Anna Yoder tries, she’d much rather help people in trouble than be a well-behaved pretty face and properly perfect Amish maidel. So she instantly reaches out to her old schoolmate, Felty Helmuth, when their Amish town ostracizes him for his Korean War army service. He's still the only one who's ever understood Anna—and liked everything from her green Jello carrot salads to her love of books. And this holiday season, she can't help hoping that somehow she and Felty can find a way to be the perfect match . . .
 
Felty sensed he was called by Gotte to serve his country, though it went against his community’s peaceful ways. Troubled by his wartime experiences, he is resigned to being an outsider avoided by most eligible Amish girls. But lively, intelligent Anna has grown into a warm-hearted generous woman who accepts Felty for who he is. And in the face of family and community opposition, he and Anna will take a leap of faith to prove they are made for each other—and a lifetime of happiness.

My Review


 
When I saw a new Annie and Felty story I knew I had to read it, and I was not disappointed. I just love these two, they sure compliment each other, and we are around to be a part of the beginning of their relationship.
Surprising facts come out when we begin our journey, and we find out how each of their families feel about their relationship.
Right from the beginning Annie, to most anyway, was a horrible cook, and our Felty well, right from start loves her cooking! This has to be the best matchmaking of the series, and one that begins it all. I personally cannot wait for more!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review
