The Amish Christmas Promise by Amy Lillard


A proposal out of obligation

Could become a promise of love…

Pregnant Amish widow Mattie Byler is stunned to find her late husband’s shunned twin brother at her door. Samuel Byler is back to fulfill a promise: to marry Mattie. Only he’s not the rogue Mattie remembers. This Christmas, he’s determined to do right by her and the community. Saying “yes” feels impossible. But if Samuel's vow won’t heal her grieving heart…maybe his love can.



About The Author


Amy loves nothing more than a good book. Except for her family...and maybe homemade tacos...and nail polish. But reading and writing are definitely high on the list.

Born and bred in Mississippi, Amy is a transplanted Southern Belle who now lives in Oklahoma with her deputy husband, their genius son, two spoiled cats, and one very lazy beagle. Oh, and don't forget the stray kitty that has taken up residence on her front porch. ^..^

When she's not creating quirky characters and happy endings, she's chauffeuring her prodigy to guitar lessons, orchestra concerts and baseball practice. She has a variety of hobbies, but her favorite is whatever gets her out of housework.

Amy also writes contemporary romances under the pen name Amie Louellen.

An award winning author, Amy is a member of RWA and ACFW. She loves to hear from readers. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Twitter, Goodreads, and Pinterest. For links to the various sites, check her website: www.amylillardbooks.com.


My Review

 Amy Lillard brings us a story of inspiration, but also a story of forgiveness from the community and from oneself.

This is an Amish story of shunning, and yet there is some compassion. A story of doing what a bother wanted, and yet, living through your own pain.

A young widow with two daughters and another baby on the way, she is dealing with so much, and yet, you will see her living her faith, yet struggling with the rules!

A man unjustly accused, comes back after finding out his brother has died, he for once wants to do the right thing, but can he?

This is a page turner for answers, but it is also a story with so much emotion, and I loved how the story worked out, just wish it was a bit longer!

I received this book through the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
