Explore the Amish community this holiday season with two tales to warm your heart.

The Midwife's Christmas Surprise by Marta Perry

Three years ago, the man Anna Zook hoped to marry left her and their Amish community for the English world. Now devoted to proving her abilities as a midwife, Anna has given up on marriage and children for herself. But when Benjamin Miller returns, now a changed man, can delivering a Christmas baby reunite these two hurting hearts?

A Christmas to Remember by Jo Ann Brown

When a little girl leads shop owner Amos Stoltzfus to an Amish woman in distress, he rushes them to his family's farm. “Linda” has no memory and doesn't know if the sweet child is her daughter or even her kin. As Christmas arrives and Linda's identity is revealed, will Amos be able to claim his holiday guests as his own?


I'm excited to share a personal Thanksgiving message from each author

Jo Ann Brown’s  author of Amish Christmas Blessings: The Midwife’s Christmas Surprise\A Christmas to Remember.
 I'm thankful for friends and family -- trite but true. Both my friends and my family have supported my writing career from the beginning, and I love seeing my children following their dreams, too.

Marta Perry’s  
A Thankful Thanksgiving:  This year our family will gather around the Thanksgiving table with kids, grandkids, and friends at our vacation home on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. We’ll bow in thankfulness that despite the ravages of the storm, despite the fact that several of them had to evacuate their homes as Hurricane Matthew approached, we all came through safely and for most only minor damage. And we’ll be well aware that others were not as fortunate as we were, so we’ll remember them with our prayers and gifts.
