Meg Hobart has everything: a happy marriage to a handsome, successful husband, a beautiful home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and three wonderful children. But it all comes crashing down around her the day she learns that her husband, James, has been living a lie—and has brought the family to financial ruin. Penniless and homeless, the Hobarts pack up what little they still possess and leave behind their golden life for good. But it’s not the material things Meg finds herself mourning. Instead, she misses the certainty that she should remain married to James, who has betrayed her trust so thoughtlessly. Worse, she is suddenly very aware of just how spoiled her children have become. Meg wonders what her family has really sacrificed in their pursuit of the American dream.

A frightening twist of fate forces the Hobarts to take refuge with a kind Amish family in Pennsylvania, where they find themselves in a home with no computers, no cell phones, nothing the children consider fashionable or fun. Her uncooperative brood confined to the Amish world of hard work and tradition, their futures entirely uncertain, Meg fears she can never make her family whole again. 

Celebrating life’s simplest but most essential values, packed with laughter and tears, this is a story of forgiveness and the power of love. You will never forget the special moment in time that is An Amish Christmas.

    " A pleasant holiday read but pretty light and predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 2/14/2014

    " very good read about the Amish from an Englishers point of view. Family stays with an Amish family for the holidays and sees first hand a new way of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/3/2014

    " A nice quick Christmas read that makes you think about what Christmas should be about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee-ann Sleegers | 1/20/2014

    " An Amish Christmas by Cynthia Keller was a wonderful book that illustrates what can happen if a family is able to disconnect from the electronic world for a while and reconnect with each other. It was interesting to watch a family who had everything they wanted loose everything because of poor decisions by James, but as a result of circumstances beyond their control the family was able to reconnect. The family initially dreaded spending time with a very accommodating Amish family. It is this detour that allows the family to reconnect, admit the problems and rediscover themselves, resulting in starting a new life with their new friends supporting them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Brannon | 1/15/2014

    " Good, not great. Lighthearted, easy, no-brainer. Great for doctor's office waiting rooms, car wash lobbies, etc. Recommended for a change of pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TheRealMelbelle | 12/20/2013

    " It is a morality tale but a good one. The attention to detail of the Amish people was very good. Heartwarming....a good, quick read when you don't want something heavy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 3/23/2013

    " This was a great story about a family who lost everything and learned some great lessons while being forced to stay with an Amish family. A great holiday read that will remind us that 'possessions' don't mean a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo Ann | 3/7/2013

    " Here's another dilemma book: 3 or 4? I just liked the story, and it's made me think a lot about materials goods, simplicity, cutting back, etc. I always feel drawn to the Amish culture, and loved reading about it again. "

    " Pleasant but ultimately cliched characters with stilted dialog and overall completely formulaic....nothing surprising. "
