Three inspirational authors bring the holidays to life through homespun stories that reprise their popular series settings. A recently widowed mother and a wary bachelor are drawn together when they take part in the Christmas program in Hubbard's touching "A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant" ("Seasons of the Heart"); a young couple find love despite their fathers' decades-long feud in Kelly Long's "A Christmas on Ice Mountain" ("Amish of Ice Mountain"); and a grandmother's meddling brings a young couple together despite their teenage clashes in Jennifer Beckstrand's "A Perfect Amish Christmas" ("Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill"). VERDICT Sweet, romantic, and heartfelt, this trio of engaging novellas link the holidays with the current Amish craze and will have appeal far beyond the expected inspirational fan base. Hubbard, Long, and Beckstrand live in St. Paul; Hummelstown, PA; and Centerville, UT, respectively.
