In the tradition of her widely popular Kauffman Amish Bakery series, author Amy Clipston tells the tale of Anna Mae McDonough who was shunned by her family four years ago when she left her Amish community in Lancaster County, PA, to marry an Englisher man and move with him to Baltimore. Now, eight months pregnant when her first child, she longs to return home for Christmas to reconcile with her family, especially her stern father, who is the religious leader for her former Amish church district.

So Anne Mae writes a letter to Kathryn Beiler, her brother’s wife, to enlist her help. Kathryn asks her husband, David, if she should arrange Anna Mae’s visit. David cautions her that a visit would cause too much stress in the family and instead suggests they visit Anna Mae and her husband in the spring. However, Kathryn arranges the visit anyway, believing in her heart that it’s God’s will for the family to heal. When Anna Mae arrives in Lancaster for Christmas, the welcome she receives is nothing like what she had hoped for. 

A book filled with love, the pain of being separated from one's family, and the determination to follow God’s will regardless of the outcome, A Plain and Simple Christmas is an inspiring page-turner that will keep you guessing what happens next—right to the very last page.

    " A very touching book about acceptance and forgiveness. Amy Clipston is an excellent story teller. She writes from her heart. Every story I have read by her has touched my heart. I hope to read many more of her books. Her books are what got me interested in reading about the Amish. "

    " This was okay. I usually enjoy reading books about the Amish and their community, but this one was not true to life, even though it is fiction. It was more of a religious book than an Amish story. This being said, I did enjoy the story. "
