A Christmas to Remember!

Sol and Mattie Riehl are hoping to hear the good news of a new arrival to the family, while Jaime and C.J. Fitzpatrick were leaving town to meet her long-absent father for a Christmas cruise, and who had a surprise for Jaime.

Sol and Mattie Riehl are hoping to hear the good news of a new arrival to the family, while Jaime and C.J. Fitzpatrick were leaving town to meet her long-absent father for a Christmas cruise, and who had a surprise for Jaime.

Jaime and Mattie, with her precocious six-and-a-half-year-old son, Danny, became acquainted at the doctor's office. As Jaime is leaving the doctor's office, the doctor asks if she could return Danny's whistle before Christmas. Before leaving to her father's for a Christmas cruise, Jaime, C.J., and Tucker, their dog, make the trip out to the Amish farm.

Shortly after their arrival at the Amish farm, Suzanne Woods Fisher, in her book, A Lancaster County Christmas, takes us on a humorous, dangerous, life-changing, and heart-warming trip. Not one, but two back-to-back major winter blizzards hustle the Fitzpatricks into the Riehl's home on Christmas eve for an unknown time frame. For those who haven't lived through a blizzard, Suzanne is very accurate in her appraisal of the weather!

Suzanne, in her typical, heart-warming writing style, spins a story that will resonate in your own life, as each of the characters must come to terms with their own personal disappointments and failures that will change the lives of all involved at the Riehl's home. The camaraderie between Danny and Jaime brings out a side of Jaime that even she didn't know she had.

I truly enjoyed the story on many levels-the humorous, dangerous, life-changing, and heartwarming-which you will experience as you read the story. I do believe it's a Christmas story that could change your life, also! Definitely a Divine encounter.

This book was provided by Amy Lathrop of Litfuse publicity Group in exchange for my review and presentation of the giveaway. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

What is with you pll? 21 reviews ans every single one a freaking plot spoiler!!!!! Yiu have told every single detail of the story, everything. What reason now is there for anyone to buy the book??? Why do you do that? Why do you think you have to ruin a book for other readers? Just because you get the book for free doesnt mean we do. We have to buy ours, but thanks to your rude, inconsiderate hatefulness, here is another book ruined that we cannot buy, because you plot spoilers have ruined it for us. Learn how to write a blamed review, not a blog or book report!!!!
