A Simple Amish Christmas by Vannetta Chapman -- Book Review

  • Paperback: 256 pages
  • Publisher: Abingdon Press; Original edition (October 2010)
  • Author: Vannetta Chapman

Book Description:
Annie Weaver always planned to return home, but the 20-year old RN has lived in Philadelphia for three years now. As her time of rumschpringe is about to come to an abrupt end, bringing for Annie an overwhelming sense of loneliness. She returns home and finds herself face-to-face with a budding romance with an Amish farmer and Annie has several important choices to make.

My Thoughts:

After finally waiting until the Christmas season to read this book I am disappointed that I waited so long to read it. I absolutely loved the whole storyline. I love the fact that Annie came home when she was needed most. I love the fact that she spent her rumschpringe learning to do something that she loved and that would help the community.

With the loss that Samuel is feeling and his love for his helping the community, and the anger that he had built up inside him, I was glad to see that he could overcome it and work through it all.

This is such a wonderfully written story and I wish there were a second book. Heck maybe there is and I just don't know about it. I guess when I am done with this I better go check it out.

I was not paid in anyway for this review. As a matter of a fact, I purchased this book for my Kindle from for a special price of $2.39 back in December 2010.
