Amish Christmas at North Star was such a fun collection of novellas. I loved the way all four stories were tied together and introduced in the prologue.
I really did enjoy each novella, however, Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert was my very favorite. This novella not only captured me but also felt like a full and complete story with no rushing through the ending.
Mourning Star by Amanda Flower was also very good, however, the ending felt sudden. I wanted another chapter! I guess that proves I was really enjoying the story. This was the first book that I have read by this author and I enjoyed the light mystery.
I thought that In the Stars by Cindy Woodsmall was a very touching story. There was a lot of hurt and pain that had to be worked through in this one. I liked these characters a lot and wanted to see a little more of their happiness at the end than I got to witness. I was also enjoying this one a great deal to not want it to end where it did!
Star of Grace by Mindy Starns Clark and Emily Clark was a sweet story that focused mostly on the hard work of a young boy to bring his brother home and reunite him with the woman he loved. It was not a typical romance, however, it was satisfying and an enjoyable novella.
This is definitely a Christmas collection I recommend to fans of Amish fiction. (4 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
