Overview

In A Plain and Simple Christmas, from the author of the widely popular Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, shunned Anna Mae doesn’t receive the welcome she expects when she pays a visit for Christmas and her world begins to fall apart, leaving her to question her place in her family—and her faith in God.

Set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Naomi’s Gift reintroduces twenty-four-year-old Naomi King, who has given up her dreams of finding true love. But when a young widower stirs surprising feelings in her, Naomi cautiously opens her heart to him and receives an unexpected response that once again turns her world upside-down.

Author Amy Clipston artfully paints a panorama of simple lives full of complex relationships, and she carefully explores cultural differences and human similarities, with inspirational results.

A Kauffman Amish Christmas Collection is a compilation of two novellas, A Plain and Simple Christmas and Naomi's Gift. A Plain and Simple Christmas: Anna Mae McDonough is homesick. When she and her husband Kellan married and Anna Mae moved to her husband's home in Baltimore, her Amish family shunned her. She could not go home, but she missed her mother, her brother and sisters, and even her father almost unbearably. Anna Mae begs Kellan to take her for a visit at Christmas, even though she will be eight months pregnant with their first child. He suggests she write to her sister-in-law, Kathryn. Kathryn is enthused; Anna Mae's brother and Kathryn's husband, David, is not. He fears an explosion from their father. Kathryn prays about it, and when David's mother comes to her sharing the ache in her heart to see Anna Mae again, Kathryn believes it is a sign from God. She goes behind David's back to bring Anna Mae to Lancaster County. One angry father, one heartsick mother, and one accident later... Well, read it yourself. You'll love it, I promise! Naomi's Gift: Naomi has a reputation as a man-chaser in the Amish community, Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. Two men have come into and gone from her life. When Caleb shows up with his delightful eight-year-old daughter, Susie, she fights to keep her rising interest in him under control. Caleb's sister has someone else in mind for Caleb, a young woman who has no use for Susie. Caleb is a widower. His beloved wife died because he hadn't taken proper care of her. There is no room for another woman in his life. He worries that he won't be able to keep Susie safe; finding a mother for her and a wife for himself would only complicate things. Christmas miracles still happen, but given the stubborn hearts involved, this could be a tough one to pull off.

I love all the Kaufman Bakery Series books. Amy Clipston has once again written a beautiful story.

I can only play an ocarina and a trumpet, but I suggest that you have the piano playing some low sharps, and a flute playing some fast, high notes?

I consider myself music-y, but I now feel dumb for not knowing what a base line is. I have some ideas though!

I like writing songs, but most of the time they're ballads. I also can't read music to save my life. Or rather, I don't have very good perfect-pitch. I have a good ear, though. And I love writing lyrics and poems. <br> <br> ~Y. P. F. Jordan

I want to write a song for piano and flute(s) with a base line of: D, F, E, A. I would like some ideas for a tune for the melody. Its an upbeat, possibly swing song
