Hello, Reader Friends ~
I’m so excited to share with you about a latest release–Amish Christmas at North Star. It’s my first fiction compilation book and it’s now out! It was an honor to write on this heartwarming collection of short stories with four wonderful authors: Mindy Starns Clark with her daughter Emily Clark, Amanda Flower, and Katie Ganshert.
Library Journal wrote: VERDICT Ganshert (Wildflowers from Winter), Flower (“Amish Quilt Shop” mysteries), Woodsmall (“Sisters of the Quilt” novels), and Clark (The Amish Midwife) stitch the stories of these four lives as skillfully as the Amish quilt (of) a beautiful bedspread. An enthralling holiday read for Amish fiction devotees.
Romantic Times gave it four stars out of a possible four and a half star rating, and calls it a “well-put-together anthology.”
Amish Christmas at North Star
Four Christmastime novellas inside one book!
(These are ALL new stories that have never been in print before)
One night four lives entered the world by the hands of an Amish midwife on the edge of North Star, Pennsylvania.
On a cold, snowy night almost twenty-five years ago, Rebekah, an Amish midwife, delivered four babies. Rebekah’s babies, as they are called, are now young adults. In four heartwarming novellas, each young person experiences a journey of discovery, love, and the wonder of Christmas.
