    exciting family drama

    Sarah Beachy seems very contented living in her small Amish community in Ohio. She loves her family, has an interested beau Adam Troyer, and enjoys her work at the Country Pleasures Bed and Breakfast where Englishers from all over the state come to stay for a taste of the Amish.

    Perhaps the only negative is her older brother Caleb left the People to join a construction company in Cleveland. Sarah wants Caleb home for Christmas after being away for over four years. This Thanksgiving she decides, over the objections of her parents, to go to the big city, find her sibling and persuade him to come home.

    This is an exciting family drama as most of the tale follows the courageous heroine as a small fish in the big pond of Cleveland trying to find and convince her brother to come home. The story line is character driven and not just by Sarah as her Mamm prays to God to keep her children safe and bring them home while Adam struggles not to go after the woman he loves but instead places his faith in God and her. Not a romance by any stretch, and the Caleb situation is too simplified as one wonders "How you're going to keep him down on the farm after he has seen" Cleveland.

    Great Messages

    This was an excellent Christmas story. Mary Ellis did an excellent job writing this story. God gave her a good messages to get across to us readers for Christmas and every day of the year.

    "Life is not always green on the other side."

    "Your sins will and are forgiven."

    I had the privilege of reading Sarah¿s Christmas Miracle by Mary

    I had the privilege of reading Sarah’s Christmas Miracle by Mary Ellis. What a great book! I love all her stories - Amish or Historical. She writes with such depth and describes the places and people so intricately that I feel as though I’m part of the family. I feel in love with Sarah’s family immediately and loved how she went back and forth between the “Englisher” world and the Amish world so effortlessly.
    Ms. Ellis’ books always have an undercurrent of spiritual truths throughout and this was no exception. You can feel the love of God throughout the family without it being forced or appearing fake. This was a great novella to get anyone into the spirit of Christmas and remember exactly why we celebrate to begin with.
    I will be recommending this book (and all of Ms. Ellis’ books) to all my friends. They are the type of books that everyone loves as they speak to us all no matter what stage of life we are in. I can’t wait to read the next book Ms. Ellis writes - I know I will love it as much as I have her others.

    A joy to read!

    I love the Amish fiction. Sarah Beachy has a job she loves at an english bed and breakfast, a boyfriend who wants to marry and a family who loves her dearly. So why is she not content? Her english boss has two children who may not be home for Christmas and her own brother hasw been gone for 5 years to his life in the english world. She worries that she could have children some day who would leave and break her heart too. This is a wonderful story about what she discovers about life and herself.
