Review: The Amish Christmas Sleigh

by Kelly Long, Amy Lillard, & Molly Jebber

The Amish Christmas Sleigh

My review:

I enjoyed this collection of three Amish novellas. Each story has a sleigh incorporated into it somehow and all three stories are independent of each other. I have included a short review of each novella.

A Sleigh Ride on Ice Mountain Kelly Long:

I enjoyed the story line of this novella. Kate and Sebastian were interesting characters who each had burdens to bear. Seeing Kate finally get a chance for happiness was a good focus in this story. This novella does have a few adult/sensual moments that may be uncomfortable for some readers.

A Mamm for Christmas by Amy Lillard:

This was my favorite novella of the collection. The children in this story are fabulous! And the story line was very sweet. I was frustrated at times with Jess Schmucker’s inability to see the possibility of love that was right in front of him for most of the story. But that did build up a great anticipation for a very enjoyable ending.

An Unexpected Christmas Blessing by Molly Jebber:

This was also a sweet and enjoyable story in the collection. I really liked the way Charity, Luke, and the two children connected. There are also some good moments of tension in this novella. I wondered a bit at the view that the bishop had about divorce. It seemed opposite of what I have read is the norm in Amish communities, but worked well for this novella.

An overall enjoyable collection with a snowy, Christmas setting throughout all of the novellas. (4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.


The Amish Christmas SleighThrough the snowy night, silver bells ring cheerfully, heralding a season of secret gifts, unexpected chances, and love’s sweetest journeys.
Kelly Long
For solitary toy-maker Sebastian Christner, hiring Kate Zook as his new housekeeper is simply the right thing to do. Now she can support her special-needs brother. But one taste of her independent spirit is showing him undreamed-of holiday joy—and making him long to give her a home for always . . .
Amy Lillard
Bernice Yoder has far too much to do to entertain holiday dreams. Even if she can help Jess Schmucker outwit his three mischievous young daughters, it’s impossible to imagine the handsome widower can see her as anything but a scolding schoolteacher. He never guesses how a magical Christmas Eve will open his eyes to love or how Der Herr will awaken their faith and hope.
Molly Jebber
As much as Charity Lantz’s children need a father, the young widow isn’t sure her new neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. They’re having more disagreements than snowflakes in December. Besides, he’s never given a sign he wants to be more than friends. Can Gott show them a way past their misunderstandings to a forever love?
