Andy Danner left North Star to join a new Amish settlement in Mississippi. His little brother devises a scheme to bring Andy home for Christmas and unwittingly unleashes the power of forgiveness in a reclusive widower’s life.

Whoever came up with the concept of this book was totally imaginative. I think if you were not in the Christmas spirit before reading this book each one of these stories, individually, will put you there. There is a town called North Star, Pennsylvania and one precious night Rebekah, a midwife, helps deliver four babies into the world. Fast forward until now and these four children, three girls and one boy, are each involved in a romance and some sort of healing. This is riveting stuff. Each one, by itself, is really a deep story that is full of tender drama. Each author gives us great characters that we can really identify with and care for and root for their respective romances to succeed. Don’t start this book late at night because you are going to want to finish it before you go to bed. I think everyone should read this book, not only for the fun of it, but for the healing that the various characters have to deal with. I think that this book would make an excellent gift to give to friends and family.
